My child attended this school from 3rd-5th grade. Some individual teachers are good, caring, and helpful. However, communication has been unsatisfactory. This year, we never received the login information for ConnectED, even after several attempts to get it from the teacher. The last three weeks of school were spent taking surveys and watching movies. There was no homework or PASS review sent home since they returned from Spring Break. There has also been a lack of communication regarding obtaining report cards at the end of the year and we now must wait until September. Playground rules do not allow for the children to play tag or football as someone may get hurt. It also is the time for children to walk laps around the playground for punishment of minor infractions such as talking out of turn. Overall, rather disappointed with this school.

My child started at this school this school year, it was horrible. Everyday she was crying not wanting to go. This is a child that loved school, learning and being with friends. Something had changed, after many meeting with the teachers and principle nothing was resolved. I learned from my child how she was being made fun of and bullied everyday at this school and the teachers knew it. When I went back they said nothing like that happened there. They knew the other students well and their parents (they were well known at the school). It was torture sending my child there, so what is a mother to do when a school allows this??? I removed my child and started home schooling she is now the happy child I had before we sent her to this HORRIBLE EXCUSE of a school.

West Pelzer has been a Godsend to me and my family! We really wanted to send the kids to a private school but due to the economy we couldn't afford it. West Pelzer has been everything and more that we could ever ask for. Last year the city closed down a near by school. West Pelzer hired on almost 3/4 or their staff and took on more then 1/2 their students. This left no one with out a job and kids didn't have to go very far to find a new school, just down the road in fact. My kids have been a-b honor roll students and the teachers and staff are wonderful, they really care and they put forth everything they have into helping our kids succeed.

My girls have been at west pelzer for 3 years, we moved them from another school that was supposed to be the best. Moving my girls was one of the hardest decissions we ever made. It has also been the BEST one. The teachers at this school are very involved with all aspects of my childrens future from education to role model. Alot of parents try to hand pick teachers at the last school, at this school I dont think there is a teacher choice. From the ladies in the lunch room, strings, art, and all other teachers, to the principle they all know who my girls as well as needs that may be specific to help them succeed.

This might not be the newest building but this school is wonderful, the teachers are caring, the principal is wonderful, and I had absolutely no problems. I wish my kids still went there.
