As a former principal of this school, I could not have envisioned West as it stands today. Upon my arrival 9yrs ago, the building was new and shiny. we had to keep the white walls white. Two prinipals and a summer later I cam say, "What a difference a summer makes!" Students and parents will enter a newly designed learning experience at West Elementary August 19. Kudos to the new principal, Kenny Hudson and the staff for their tireless efforts. The school is beautiful and inviting. I'm so excited for the children.
West Elementary is an amazing school where teachers and administrators care about their students. West Elementary has an active PTA and its members strive to make the home to school connection effective. I am proud to be part of the West team!
West Elementary is a hidden gem on the Gulf Coast! Students love being here and are excited to come to school every day.
The administration and teachers have high expectations for all students. We provide a positive learning envrionment and experience for all of our students.
The teachers care for each student at West Elementary. It is their goal to provide the best education for each student. West is the BEST!
West Elementary is a great school. The staff tries to follow the motto of the Gulfport School District.("Every Decision.What is Best For Children? Every Time.") This school has a great staff.Among this great staff are some on the best teachers :Mrs. Zanders 1st grade,Mrs. Drake 3rd grade, and Ms. Daniels 5th grade.
This school is a quality school in the Gulfport School District. The teachers and staff are exceptional. They provide quality education to each student.
Im a parent and a staff member and my grandchild enjoys her teachers and learning here at 28th street. She wouldn't never want to go to another school. And she loves the food.
The teachers and administrators at this school care very deeply aboul the students . They work tirelessly to provide the students with the best possible education available on the Gulf Coast. Parents are always welcome , and there are frequent activities for parents to learn more about the curriculum. Thank you West Elementary!!
WE is a wonderful school that has devoted, professional teachers that encourage each student to perform to their greatest ability.
I have been in the navy 17 years and this by far is the worst school my kids have ever been in. I pulled my kids out and put them in westminister academy. So if you are going to live in base housing send you kids to a private school
i think west elementary is great. my daughter has been attening the school since kindergarten. and she loves the school and the teachers. it is the best.
We LOVE WEST! As a transplant from the Northeast with a first grader who is ADHD, I have nothing but positive things to say about WEST. The teachers and administration truly love these children and it shows in everything they do. As an arts based school, every aspect of good, old-fashioned elementary learning is related to some art form. Everyone works within each childs ability and graciously accommodates disability -- without excuses. The very active PTO works very hard to provide the children with wonderful adventures. PTO night is the exception to every experience I have had. It is expected that parents will attend and participate. KEEP IT UP, WEST!
West is the best. My daughter attends west in kindergarden and she loves it. She loves her teachers and so do i. You can talk to them whenever. Most of all what i like about west is how they challenge your children. My child is only in the kindergarden and she has alot of homework weekly, not to much to overwhelm her but enough to keep her busy. It makes me proud, if i can say that because i know that it all will pay off in the end. So west continue to strive higher and accomplish the world. Level 5.
