West is a good school. They are caring and kind and this shows in the children. I don't feel they are great at challenging the brightest students, and there are many. I feel the need to seek outside enrichment for my children. I am hoping the latest strategies implemented by the district will require teachers to differentiate better. I do think staff is capable. I think the PTA is wonderful. Parents need to be more involved, no matter where they send their children to school.
'West is the Best' is our motto!We believe in an educationn with fun attitude. we expect success and we achieve it . Safety, nurturing, responsibility and a no bullying concept set our path. It is a great team of educators and a working hard PTA. We encourage our children everyday and strive as a force to enrich all facets of learning.
This school has a wonderful vibe and environment. It is a little haven for our kids. I have two children at West School and they feel so at home and are getting a terrific academic start. The art and music programs are extraudinary. I think it is funny that some people from our community will judge this school as a lesser quality school due to it's location, lack of parking or lack of grass...but let's keep it our secret because inside the building at West School...it feels like a little private school!
All four of my children have attended West, two graduates & two presently attending. West is a warm nurturing environment very conducive to learning. There is a wonderful art & music program which enable the children to experience all aspects of the arts. Academically the children are well prepared and with being such a small school there is much individual attention received. I do wish there were more 'new' parent involvement, instead of the same group always volunteering...who are all wonderful! West is Best!
My daughter has been going to West school since kindergarten, she is now in 5th grade and loves her school. She says she feel secure in her school. It is a very tight knit school and she gets a lot of indiviual attention. There is a real sense of community at West Elementary School. She loves it. As her mother I get a feeling of security myself knowing my child is in a safe and nuturing environment while learning.
