As another parent noted, and to me ANY elementary level school should have transportation for the students. Among other things, having transportation would reduce the number of parent vehicles causing their own congestion to the roads, as well as help households that have no transportation get their children safely to and from school. I would not use the rating system here -- I find it a misleading number. Instead using the test scoring numbers I think is more accurate in gauging if the school is doing what they're supposed to be doing. NOT babysitting, but educating. Unfortunately it seems the numbers have dropped substantially since my child started there. The school, I feel is outstanding. I find the teachers I've had to deal with mostly reasonable. The principle I think is top notch. He's always been available to at least listen to concerns, and in some cases, more than not, he has been helpful in resolving some concerns. I do not hesitate to send my child to this school, but I have a growing concern for the standard of skills (even passing tests) is a problem. If the tests don't even meet the state numbers, this is a BIG problem!

first and foremost from all the taxes we pay for the schools they should provide transportation. not every parent depends on someone else to pick their child up, some of us are stay at home mothers with younger children with no vehicle and doesnt live right up the street from the school. i myself now have to walk at least 3 miles a day to get my child with a 5 month old, what about when it rains or snows? And also i see the school had a rating 3/10 which is a drastic change from the school she was going to prior, i just pray my daughter receives the proper education she needs and deserves. Im actually kind of hesitant to send her to west end memorial, sad enough to say. I hope theres an improvement

My daughter attends West End & we absolutely love it. The teachers & staff are great. It is a close family like atmosphere. I would very highly recommend this elementary especially the fact that they start a foreign language in kindergarten & now my daughter at the age of 8 can speak spanish very well.

My son has been at West End since kindergarden. He loves going to school everyday, which is a blessing for me. Everymorning when I take him to the Y-kidz program, he says goodmorning to teachers that he has never had and I think its great that even though he was never in thier class, they still refer to him by his name. I like knowing that all the teachers are involved with every student, not just the ones they have in thier classes. One concern I do have however is that I feel the school and it's teachers need to understand more that not all of the kids are comming from a two parent family with a stay at home mom. I have in the past had issues with parent teacher conferences that I could not attended because I work till 5 and the teacher would not stay at the school.

My two children attend West End and they are getting a great education. Academically my children are doing exceptionally well. Others in our community need to welcome diversity and educated themselves on how well our public schools are doing. It is foolish to live in this town and waste the public education opportunities that are here for them. We are proud to have our children in Woodbury Public Schools and to be a part of this great community.
