It has been a wonderful school for both my children. Teachers are very caring and nurturing. They work hard for our children and give them an excellent education.
Average, at best... I moved to Plainedge from a neighboring community mainly because of their schools, but have yet to see anything "wonderful". High taxes but low standards and a lot of phony people in charge here.
I love the feeling of community that comes from the school. The Principal , teachers and staff truly care about each and every child as an individual.
The Principal, Mrs. Muscarella, is the best and the teachers all care about their children.
West is a great school because it has a very caring staff. My daughter always come home with a smile and a great story to tell!
The teachers always make learning fun. My daughter always comes home with new rhymes to remember how something is done.
John H West is full of amazing staff and students! The teachers are very nice and understanding, and the principal lets the kids enjoy themselves! I always see kids enter and leave school with a smile on their face.
We have a great school because we have the best Principal with the best teachers.
We pull together as a community to give our kids everything they need
Johm H. West was my husbands school growing up. He insisted that the kids go there. After the my kids spent 3 years in the school i saw why my husband wanted this school. The principal, Carol Muscarella, impressed me the most with her caring and involvment. Our first year there she nknew my name just after a couple of days( and i am not up there pften). She made it a point to learn the students names and thier parents names. I know this is a great school because even when my kids are feeling run down and not 100% and i say stay home so dont catch anything they cry to go to school.
I went there as a child and now my kids are there. It has always felt like family. The teachers and principal make you feel at home.

The school offers adequate support systems for extra curricular activities. Quality of academic programs are superior compared to other area schools. Children who are need of additional help are ensured of provision of the same adequately.
