We have had 3 children go to Westview and they have all loved their experiences. They have a genuine love of learning and it shows at home with their continued desire to write their own stories and play school. They never want to stay home from school, even when they are sick. The staff are amazing and the teachers have so much love for their students. When my kids have needed some extra TLC, it has been easy to get help from the social worker and principal.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They are constantly working on "bulldog strong" behavior. The students are always working to build a better community both in and out of school. They learn compassion for people who are different from them and they are interested in differences, but not judgementle.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teacher have a great deal of years of experience and are so loving and caring for each individual student. There are support staff for the upper and lower level students and I've even seen the principal working 1:1 with a student who needed some extra help.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
I have heard of other kids crying about the amount of homework that is given to their students in other schools. Mine never do. I think that they give pretty minimal homework, but appropriate. If anything, there could be more homework; however maybe it isn't necessary, because my kids create their own homework out of their own genuine interest in learning vs. being demanded and made to feel like a burden.

We open enrolled to Westview from another school within our district and we could not be happier!! Our son finally loves school!!! I don't know many elementary aged kids that make excuses to skip school, but when our son was doing it daily, we knew that we needed to look at other options and we are glad we did!!! Our son is now ready for school long before its time to go, he excitedly tells us about his days, his teacher is in constant contact with us, etc etc etc. The school offers so many opportunities for families to help out and be involved in their children's lives - from classroom parties, to after school activities to evening fun nights - as well as celebrating EVERYONE! Rather than removing religion and parties (which children look forward to), the school celebrates ALL! This is something that is so rare in schools these days, which is unfortunate because children should be able to learn about other cultures and traditions. Our son has learned so much about other nationalities and he loves sharing at home, which means our family learns as well. Thank you, Westview Elementary staff, for allowing ALL religions to be learnt and celebrated! We can't say enough about how great this school has been for our son and family!

Bulldog STRONG is an amazing concept and it helps to keep kids accountable for their actions and decisions.

My daughter loved being a Bulldog. The Bulldog Strong initiative has made positive choices a part of the fabric of the school. The teachers are caring and attentive and react quickly to issues that arise in a students' learning.

Develops character: Strongly agree

Bulldog STRONG is a behavior initiative that has seen positive results in the school culture. And in just two years!

It has given my kids and family a fantastic academic experience along with a fantastic community to be apart of.

We've always been very grateful for the care and support that our boys have received at Westview. They never gave up on them and worked with them until they were better students. The teachers and staff are wonderful with ALL students and are very good at respecting ALL cultures and learning types. Because of the diversity of our small school - my kids have a better understanding of all people and cultures from ESL students to special needs. There is a culture of tolerance in our school that I don't see everywhere.
