The class sizes are very appropriate with most who have student teachers. We moved into a new development and the school helped with transportation. This is a top of the line school with new technology and no expspense spared when it comes to your childs education. The staff is friendly and willing to make the best plan possible to assist your child in the classroom, at home or even with tutors. The principal was a teacher at this school and strives to have an amazing school with great scores. He sits on the PTA and listens to parent concerns, while providing great feedback. I would recommend this school to everyone I know.

The school system itself it fine. The Teachers are nice and always willing to listen and work with your child the problem is the neighborhood is aging and with that comes problems with families that just don't care. The preschool has not hired the same quality they have hired in the past.

I feel very fortunate to be a staff member at this school! There is a welcoming feeling and great commaraderie among the staff. The teachers and administration do everything in their power to make this school the very best it can be, and they care deeply about every single student's education. Plus, there is tremendous parental involvement witht the community club.

Westbrook Elementary is a fantastic school for kids. The teachers are outstanding and the school really caters to the kids that need the help and the ones that are a above average and need the challenge. You will not find a bad teacher at Westbrook and the schools Community Club(PTO) are very focused on improving the school and the experience the students have during their time in the school.

I am a parent of a special needs child. We came to Westbrook from a farm community school. The staff at Westbrook has always taken the time to ensure that she has the best possible education. They are always available to address any concerns I may have about her quality of work. I am very proud to call Westbrook home. The families I have met here are friendly and very open.

Most of the Westbrook staff goes above and beyond to provide our children with a great education. The parent community is outstanding and has made our first years easy and comforting. I would recomend Westbrook to anyone wanting a large school to allow the children to grow independently with great respect for others differences but with a small school feel.
