This is our 2nd year at Westridge. I just have to say the teachers here are stellar! My daughter (who is now in 4th grade) has grown leaps and bounds at Westridge. The teachers care and are involved in their students... I would recommend this school to anyone.

As a parent I feel that Westridge Elementary is a good school but it could use improvements. My main concern is the principal. She does not return phone calls and would rather e-mail you or brush you off all together if you or your child have an issue at school. However, I do love the teachers my child has had at Westridge each and everyone has been wonderful and very approachable when I had a question or concern.

I feel that Westridge Elementary is the best Elementary school in Missouri. My 2 children attended this school and I believe that they recieved their teachers best. All of the staff seemed to be kind and attentive to the needs of children.Although thier's not much racial diversity my children had wonderful friends. There was one thing I didn't appreciate and that was how they have a small ratio of inner city children attending that come from a completely diffrent environment,which in the long run I think isn't good for the schools moral environment. Children need divercity but at what cost? Overall I think this school does a awesome job with education and making a safe and exciting place to learn.

If you would like to know the actual class size, my child told me(she's in 5th grade)that her class had 21 students. But that was last year. It may have lowered or increased since, but I doubt by much. I do believe it is a fairly good school. My daughter always came home knowing something new and she had fun while learning.

My Children have had a wonderful experience at Westridge. They were given help when needed and always felt safe and happy to go to school. The teachers are acountable and prepared. I feel they have recieved an enriched education.

The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
