This used to be a great school. The new principal Mrs. Moore-Tyler is horrible. Her arrogance and straight face is not welcoming at all. The last straw of many for me was when she bought cupcakes for the whole school for HER birthday knowing it was against school policy. Horrible principal.
West Mound Elementary has room for improvement. There are limited extracurricular activities at sporatic intervals. The school lacks consistancey in these activities, as well as in classroom discipline. Intelligent children are not often challenged, nor are they encouraged to strive for their full potential. This is a school designed for the average. On the bright side, the principal is excellent. She is trying to better her school. Unfortunately, change and challenge is often met with resistance from those satisfied with the status quo, and from those who call for change yet are unwilling to experience the sacrifices involved.
