I have 3 kids that are currently attending this school. This school has a very large minority population and is challenged daily by significant social issues. In regard to instruction, overall I have been very disappointed. The teachers that my kids have had are overwhelmed with the wide academic gaps among the children, and there are serious discipline issues in the classroom. When I visit the school I find staff to be unfriendly--not smiling. It makes me question why some teachers chose education as their career. Maybe they just wanted their summers off?

My son attended West Greene several years ago. My impression was distinctly one of 'love/hate.' I give WG high marks for being a clean, safe school--and I found many staff members there who genuinely seemed to like kids, and enjoy teaching. The school really put effort into searching out effective education methods, and attempted to motivate their students beyond the 'status quo.' One thing bothered me though: at the time my son was there--don't know if it is still the case or not--there were a lot of staff members who were closely related to one another. My son's experiences on a couple of occassions underscored that too much family in anything other than a family business, can easily lead to pointless complications and a loss of integrity when it comes to getting problems solved. Over-all though, I'm not unhappy he attended WG, and neither is he.

My daughter attended West Greene for the first time this year and has loved it! She has learned a great deal. The only problem I have is the rate at which the students learn and the amount of work they must do, which I feel is probably part of the No Child Left Behind Act. Her teacher has been wonderful and very helpful. We only had one problem this year so far with 2 other students but we spoke with the principal and he was very easy to talk to and very understanding. He took care of the problem right away. There is a lack of competency, courtesy, politeness and communication with some of the staff however and I wish they offered more activities but overall it's been a good school.

I have had children and grandchildren attend West Greene Elementary School. The staff is hard working, knowledgeable, caring individuals who strive for excellence in teaching students. Every staff members' goal is to provide the best education possible for each student. There are numerous programs/initiatives at West Greene to meet the needs of all students and parents. West Greene staff members know that parents are an important part of the educational process.

I have had several grandkids go through West Green Elementary. What consistently seems to be missing is a level of integrity and sincere honesty in the staff. It truly hurts me to say this about any person - and when it appears so in an institution that has such potential impact in and on our community and our children, I find myself at a lost to understand its source.
