This school deserves the highest of praise. The dean as well as the teachers cares very deeply for the children they teach. I have never ever seen a group of professionals that could care more. Not only do they care for them academically but personally as well. For example, if you ask them to keep your child from socializing from a certain child that you know causes a lot of discipline problems they will do so. If they see your child do something, be somewhere, or hang with someone thats not a good example they will let you know right away. This is important to me. You email one of them, and they email you back immediately. They keep you informed of their grades before it is to late. They all really help you help your child. They listen! They care! Your child couldn't be at a better school. Thanks!

I currently go to this school and I love it! i highly recomend going here. Parents are greatly involved here, both in sports and fine arts. We are involved in football, track, basketball, volleyball as well as music competions, such as marching band, show choir, drama, jazz choir, jazz band, and many other honors. Our academic programs are exceeding those of our close neighboring schools. Our school mascot is the Falcon and our colors are green & white. All in all, West Burlington is a great school for all to attend.

I am very pleased with the West Burlington school system as I have two children who currently attend. I feel the teachers are very caring and concerned about the kids and give them the attention they need; there is always an open door available to the staff if needed. I would highly recommend both schools.
