I open enroll my son at Western and this is his first year there. They are very innovative and have tried a few new things this year which have helped my son tremendously. He received a math workbook to keep at home...I sometimes search through the workbook and find problems which match up with things he's struggling with, so that has been very helpful. The after school program REALLY reinforces what they are learning all day and I've been very impressed with the teachers he has in first grade and also the after school program. They also purchased an online subscription for reading so kids can log in from home, read books, take quizzes and earn points to use within the program. My son hasn't started the AR program as fast as I would have liked and that is frustrating, but the important part is really that he is reading well.

My daughter has been enrolled at Western Elementary for 2 years now. Last year we had a wonderful experience with them, but this year I am not nearly as impressed. Until this point of the school year I assumed that my daughter had a science teacher. Turns out she doesn't and is really not being taught much science at all, which worries me as a prospective middle school science teacher because she needs to have a good grasp on science next year. I find this fact appalling! My daughter has really excelled there, but I feel that there are things that are lacking. They don't take the kids on field trips unless they are in honors programs, which my child is. I think this is a huge disservice to students as field trips are valuable opportunities to learn. I think that their pick up procedures at the end of the day are inefficient and could stand to be improved. In our old district we did car rider signs that had a number assigned to each student and we were allowed to get out of the car and wait for the kids, but not here. My final gripe is with the district as a whole. Build some snow days into your schedule. It is completely foolish not to.

My two sons have just recently enrolled in Western Elm. I have to say they are loving it and still get the top education they need. Ms. Stumbo is my oldest sons teacher and she is a sucess in her own self. I am so glad that my children are receiving the foundation and education they need to grow.

I have 4 children ages 6-10 going to Western. The two older kids were going to a top Lexington school last year. This year, they seem to be enjoying school much more, but I would say they are not at the level they were. Not to take anything away from Western, it is just a reflection of the academic standards set between districts/schools. My two younger children continue to make progress although my youngest has been struggling emotionally to keep up. She receives a lot of individual staff attention and outside developmental support that other schools could not provide. For this, I am grateful that Western has the professional staff to help her deal with her learning and some behavioral issues. The 1st/2nd graders are kept with the same class/teacher for two years. Both teachers are very competent. However, my assessment of this program is still up in the air.

Both my younger children attend this school and I am very happy with their progress. The school is the second best in the district and is partnered with the same school for family resources. The academics are challenging and the infrastructure supports high achievement.
