Our district consist of elementary & the middle/jr high. It is an upscale community with lots of parent involment & 1 of the top schools in state. There is very little turnover 4 administration. My husband went to this school in elementary school &some teachers are still there & retiring. I assume that everyone gets paid well. PTO raises money that goes to purchase new computers for computer lab or buys things that the teachers have on their wish lists. Education is #1 sports #2. This community is built of doctors, lawyers etc. downfall....I would like to see them get more automated 4 hm wk & handouts. wood save lots of trees, parents could read on their time& nothing lost via email. My kids are going into 5th grade at the middle/jr high and when they attended the elementary they were on their 2nd or 3rd principal. I also like the fact that my school district owns their buses and employees the bus drivers along with the other staff memebers. My kids get on the same bus day after day and the driver knows the routine. Our school also considers the bus route so that the little ones do not cross the street or in front of the bus.

Gower West is a great school. It students are well-behaved, the teachers caring, and the principal provides excellent leadership. In October 2006, Chicago Magazine named Gower West one of the top schools in DuPage County.

The newer principal has been there for just over two years, she does not know many children's names AND ignores the parents, there is now partnering for issues or suggested improvement. The resource center is a mess and has been closed many times last and this year. This used to be a much better school, new principal is dragging it down.
