Westside Elementary School 4

Posted May 09, 2014

We have had great teacher experiences with both of our kids. The first and second grade teachers rotate so that your child can have the same teacher for both years. We have really liked this idea. The staff is good, but short. Music and PE have been cut quite a bit. Principal is very involved, very knowledgeable and strives to make it the best school in the district. Parents are very involved which is good, but also a sign that they are lacking staff/funding. We have loved our experience at Westside. I recommend it above all the schools in the district and above most in the Idaho Falls community.

Safety standards at this school are nonexistent. There is no procedure in place to ensure that unwanted people do not enter the building. Doors are left unlocked at the sides and rear of the building and there are no security cameras. Children are not allowed to enter the building until start of school, yet there is no outside supervision. Children are forced to go outside during recess, with the temperature far below freezing, even if they've forgotten their coats or gloves. When it is too cold to play, the children huddle together outside until their 20 minutes of forced outdoor time is over. All of the school's policies are directed toward the convenience of the staff, to the detriment of the child. The administrative staff is well-meaning but completely incompetent.
