West Side has been a wonderful place for my kids! This is the second school they have been to in this county and while we had a great experience there, this is definitely a place my kids prefer. My kids' teachers have been tremendously supportive and kind. My kids look forward to going to school each and every day.

This has been a horrible experience for my child and I from grade 1 to grade 3. The teachers and principal do not communicate with parents or they use your child as a means of a "middle man". Faculty and teachers have talked down to my child along with tell my child he wasn't being bullied when he was coming home crying from school. Disgusting excuse for adult behavior let alone adults that are getting paid to be responsible for your children.

This particular school is a school that if you aren't non white then you aren't welcome. I knew a parent whose child was bullied because of the color of her skin. Then the school put a stop to it and the student in question was surprised that the child's parent was white and not non white.
