Pushes too much homework and always blames the parents for attendance issues. Most kids dred going here everyday, we have to drag my daughter out the door, then she tries to get suspended so she doesnt have to go. They find her shyness a problem so if she struggles they just let her drown because shes quiet. My child actually isnt quiet, last time she was it was because the sitter i sent her too was hitting her and blaming things on her she didn't do as well as. Only makes me wonder what really happens during her school day. I can only imagine the joy they would have with my youngest if they can't handle the easy one!
I completely disagree with the 5/10 rating by Great Schools. Westshore is an amazing school! Westshore has around 300 students so the personal attention that each student receives is far above what I expected. The everyone knows each child by name and they show personal interest in the students lives. My questions/concerns are always addressed immediately and I am always satisfied with the solution. I love this school! Ask any parent whose child attends Westshore and they will tell you the same thing. Don't overlook this amazing school!
This is my grandson's second year at Westshore Elementary and our entire family is in love with this school. The personal attention given to every student is phenomenal. The students' eagerness to learn is evident in their smiling faces. The teachers make learning fun!! My husband attended this school as a child and we are so fortunate that our grandson is a student here now. We love Westshore Elementary! Go Wildcats!!!
This is our second full school year at Westshore. I think a 5 is a completely unfair rating by Goodschools.com There are many schools that have a free and reduced lunch ration that Westshore has but don't boast the success with students AND families. The school has less than 400 students and the principal knows every child by name. The staff is there for parents and students. They are enthusiastic and have the best family involvement activities I have ever experienced (as an educator and as a parent). Schools are made up of students. These teachers take every child to their best. We all can't hit home runs so why do we expect all children to score level 5 on standardized tests? Because a legislator said so, let them come teach all kids to that level. Don't miss this school. Take a tour before you pass it up based on some score given by a test that was written by people far removed from a classroom.
Westshore Elementary is a great school! The teachers and staff really care about each and every child. If your child has special needs they will work with you to make sure your child gets the very best to serve their needs. Highly recommend.
This school is absolutely amazing. The staff and teacher as well as the principal are genuinely kind and engaging people. The children are well-behaved and eager to learn. The community is folksy and established. Love it, love it, love it.
