We are a military family and our kids have attended several schools due to military orders. I can honestly say that Almor West is a GREAT school. The Principal is fantastic and has great communication with the parents. My children have had a very positive experience at Almor West and their teachers have gone out of their way to help my children excel. The teachers that I have interacted with are very professional and truly care about my childrens success. My children are challenged academically and I am pleasantly suprised at the complexity of work and level of responsibility the teachers place on the students. They do have alot of fund raisers, however, the money is used to improve the academic environment during a period of significantly constrained resources.
Worst school hands down! Do not send your children here if you care about them getting a good education. The teachers seem unqualified, administration (principal) HORRIBLE, and the school is constantly seeking donations of some kind. All 3 of my Almor West students are sliding backwards. AVOID THIS SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS! The other reviews on here are NOT accurate- trust me!
Almor West is where my child attends school. They have a great parent communication system. I always felt like I was well informed of school happenings. The teacher my child had was wonderful. She taught him so many things. There is a very active PTA at Almor West. They also have a wonderful behavior managent plan that they use for the entire school. Students earn Gotcha's when they are caught doing the right thing. Students shop weekly at the "Gotcha" store. It really encourages students to do whats right. Almor West is an A+ school.
This is the worst school we have been to! The principle has no leadership abilities and the teachers do whatever they want. I cannot believe they rated an 8. The test scores were good but as for everyhing else I rate them a 2.
I am not a parent, but a student who went to this school for third and fourth grade before I moved to Maryland. It was a great school and I would like to give a shout out to my third grade teacher, Mrs.Stamper for being the greatest teacher I ever had! She made my life different but better! In my 6th grade english class here we have to write a character sketch about someone who helped our lives be better and so I chose her! Thanx Mrs. Stamper! ( oh by the way, this is Sarah Campbell from your 3rd grade class in 2000-2001!) Miss ya!
