the teachers at the school really are there for the children to learn there is a big difference on the bully mood they put it in to prates and they reword good behavior they get help for the children when there grades start going below average. I am a parent with 3 children in deferent age levels.

This school has great teachers. You can tell they love their jobs and the kids. I am not a fan of the principal though. I know 2 families that have left the school because of him.

We couldn't be happier with West Hanover Elementary School our son currently attends Kindergarten with Miss Hutchins and between her, Mr C and the rest of the staff here he is thriving. I am so excited for my little man to move into 1st Grade and my other little pre-schooler to go to Kindergarten next year.

It has a small town school feeling which reminds me of my elementary experience but offers so many experiences because of the great PTA and staff involvement.

This is the oldest school in the district (circa 1970) and graduates some of the best students. Just shows that education can happen any time students, teachers, and parents all care. Sure would be nice to get an updated school, though!

My oldest son spent 7 years at WH, and every year had something valuable to offer him. The staff always went out of their way to help him when he needed it, and always supported and encouraged him no matter what school project, academic task or extracurricular activity he was involved in. While my youngest son is only in his second year at WH, he has already received the extra help he needed to deal with his adjustment to first grade. I look forward to the next 4 years and WH and I wouldn't want him to go to any other school! My oldest son tells me he is proud to have graduated from WH and has very good memories of his elementary years. I felt he was well prepared for Middle School when he started there this year and is doing extremely well.
