I have 2 daughters at this school currently. If you are moving to West Des Moines, this is a fantastic, welcoming community of families and staff who work together well. Lots of parent support. There is a great mix of new and well-seasoned teachers, they strive to keep technology current and offer many activities for students outside of school.
