Westerly Hills Academy is a Great School. The teachers work hard to ensure that every child is taught at their level of understanding.

Westerly Hills Academy is a Great School! As educators for 7 hours a day, we are the parents, doctors, lawyers, judges, supporters, encourages, and we take a lot from students as well as parents. We work long hours without a pay increase and many times without a "Thank You!" from parents or the community. It takes a village or a community to raise a child, so WE the school need our parents to be involved as well as the community. I can say that Westerly Hills is a better school today than in years past. Also, Our Principal is in classrooms everyday, motivating and encouraging students to do their best. Her quote for the entire school (students and staff) "Go Forth And Do Great Things!"

Every since the old principal left, things have not been the same! The communication between teachers' and parents' when it comes to calendar events are absolutely terrible1 They are so disorganized and the atmosphere is "boring" vs. before, the principal would get the children so excited and pumped about learning!! The test scores aren't that great, and a lot of staff have left! The school's appearance isn't well kept anymore either! The children use to plant flowers in the garden, all that work has "grown to shrubs". i would not recommend this school at all!

This school is HORRIBLE! If your child is academically gifted you do not want to enroll them here. The office staff is rude and unhelpful, the curriculum is poor at best, there IS no curriculum for advanced students, they dont even assign textbooks to the students so they can study and get ahead. My son was in all honors classes including Geometry and they have placed him in classes where he's doing work he learned two years ago. Mediocrity is encouraged and academic excellence is discouraged. My son hardly ever gets homework and he complains that there are so many behavioral disturbances,if he werent taking classes hes already taken,it would be impossible to learn. I am trying to transfer my son out of this school as quickly as possible before they dumb him down permantly. If your child is dumb or if youd like to make them dumb,send them here.

Westerly Hills has allowed a 3rd grade student to slip through the system. Not only did this child squeak by hardly knowing how to spell his last name but had missed over 25 days in the first quarter. It is not the child's fault. This oversight is the fault of the mother and the school. Now the child is way behind and has to overcome many challenges that should have never been ignored. If the parent is not doing their job with hygiene, attendance and making sure education is being properly maintained; then the school should have stepped up and not let the child be an oversight. It is laziness on both parts and your grade from me is below POOR. Thankfully, the child is getting better guidance and goes to a MUCH better school.

This is NOT a charter school. It is a traditional elementary school, part of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.
