Two of my children have gone to west gate elementary since they were 5 years old. West gate elementary is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child and they are not afraid to think outside of the teaching box. The principal is kind and knows each child by name (as well as the parents ). She is a great example of a leader.
Although this school is in a rough neighborhood, the teachers and programs are the best I've seen. This school is rated as an 'A' school in the state, and offers many opportunities for students to excell. The reading and math programs are outstanding, and the music and art programs are as well. All staff are friendly, and love the kids who attend.
