This school gets two stars only for the teachers. We have had wonderful experiences with the teachers that my children have had throughout the years. However, the rest of the staff is very unfriendly and rude. The students seems to feel terrified of the administration, particularly the principal. The principal is extremely bitter towards parents and students for some unknown reason. My kids love their teachers, but they still come home upset and drained because school feels like a prison to them with a mean principal as the warden.

Either parents or staff from this school are submitting raving reviews to boost this school's scores up! For example, in February of 2012 a parent posted a review claiming that art is neglected at Westview, but just one month later a parent gives Westview 5 stars and goes on and on about how great Westview is and how art is so incorporated into the school. I think the fact that Westview has to write these fake reviews shows just how insecure they are about any criticism of their school.

Excellent teachers, cheerful happy children. The office staff are less than friendly to parents and rude to the children. I like how the teachers go above and beyond. Helping the children achieve success. My child loves school! They get little time to talk at lunch or "she" yells at them. My child enjoys music, science and Library. Its a great school. I'm glad we are here. Good luck with the (office/attendance/lunch) women. She needs people skills and a heart...

This is our first year at WestView and overall it has been fine. I do completely agree that the principal is not friendly. She doesn't even try to be pleasant. I have attended some of the PTA meetings and haven't heard from her at all. The PTA seems to be doing a good job though. They seem to really care about the school. The front office staff is unfriendly, they only smile at a few of the kids (I'm assuming it is the children they like best). I've overheard a few teachers being mean to the kids in the hallways, also. My child's teacher is wonderful and has been so patient and kind through the entire year. Overall, WestView is a good school but I think the principal and office staff need to either move on or try a little harder to remember that they are working with children. Children need support, kindness and a happy environment. Things can be under control without having to yell and punish. I'm hoping that things will improve over time.

I believe my child has received a good education with a few exceptional teachers. i also feel that as a whole there are things to improve.This school will never admit that anyting is wrong and therefore will never get better than it is today. Creating individual thinkers is not a priority.The priority is fitting all children into the same mold. March on the blue line, only look straight ahead, hands by your side, no talking is the norm. I have often empathized with the teachers who try to create a better environment in their rooms. Socialization should be high on the list of the core cirriculum but I have never seen anyone at this school take the time to teach these children how to interact with each other. If you say they should learn that at home, my response is that the school has them during these teachable moments. I as a parent do not have groups of children at my house. Teaching yeilds better results than screaming. Heaven help you if your child is pegged as a trouble maker- my heart goes out to those children who are screamed at as soon as they enter the cafeteria. With all that said this school does produce test score results, I just wonder at what cost to the individuals.

This school has many great qualities. The majority of the teachers are terrific. There are many exceptionally dedicated parents - as evidenced by the obvious push to increase the school's rating (several in about 2wks). But this website is one of ONLY places parents feel they can voice their concerns. Criticism of any kind is not welcomed, so where else can a parent go? If you really love this school -- allow parents to have a place to air complaints so it can get better! It is not a warm school. Teachers do what they can, but at lunch and in the halls, where others take over, it is harsh. There is no firm yet kind reminder to "be quiet", "stay on the blueline", or "keep looking forward".... To list a few commands heard multiple times a visit. Reminders are harsh and severe - the principal will yell as well. Safety may be a concern, but there are better and kinder methods to enforce rules. The only time a kid can be "free" is lunch and recess. Take 15 min for quiet lunch, 5+ Min for the "lining up" after lunch (quiet /face forward), and the 10 + minutes frequently lost of recess to walk for any infraction, and you have about 25 min -- if they get to go outside.....

I went to Westview from Kindergarden-5th grade. It is a fantastic school! The teachers are so nice and parents can volunteer to help in class and stay with their child. There is no favoritism, bullying, or anything bad. The halls are decorated with paintings and bright blue. The school is so welcoming! The principal is probably one of the nicest people I know. The whole school knows each other, so the Kindergarden-5th grade all talk and look out or each other! The bus rides are even a nice and fun environment! I am now in 8th grade at the school right beside Westview called East Hamilton, currently in 8th grade. Westview was so fun, I remember all my wonderful teachers, and can remember everything! The school colors are blue and gold. There are so many fun events, like the main one called Harvest Hoedown. It is where the students dress like cowboys and cowgirls. Westview elementary is one of the best schools in TN!

The main thing you should know about Westview is that it is the product of having a public school in an area surrounded mostly by subdivisions full of larger, less affordable homes. This may or may not cause children (and parents!) from lower-middle class families to feel isolated, snubbed, or just plain out of sync with everyone else. While the curriculum definitely impresses me, it is mostly because what my daughter studied in Kindergarten is what I was studying 20 years ago in a private school in 2nd and 3rd grade. I have noticed a lot of snobbery in this school, but I'd rather my child stay than go elsewhere. I feel like it's better the devil I know than the one I do not. We are a pretty thick-skinned family, and we can handle a little discrimination based upon our class for the sake of a better educational opportunity. For the most part, the office staff are informative (and they will generally remember who you are), and the teachers seem to do their jobs adequately. If you live in Hamilton County and you want your child to get one of the best educations possible (other than paying a small fortune to obtain it), Westview may just be your necessary evil. I think we will stay.

extraordinary in education. The teachers show a great love for education. They make sure your child learns it and gets it right the first time. The walls are colorful and inviting. They do hands on work with scissors and glue. I love the old fashion learning and the up to date new combined. They going to P.E, music, computer and science lab. They attend library too. They also have art in the classroom. I am able to volunteer in the classroom or eat lunch with my child. My child loves her teacher and looks forward to each and everyday. The Principal is wonderful at her leadership position. We see her out and she knows us by name and asks how are child is doing. I like that feeling. We have a huge fundraiser in the fall called Harvest Hoedown, are children love it. They play games, buy things and eat. We all dress like cowgirls and cowboys. It is a great school to call home.

Westview is by far the best elementary school in the Hamilton County District. The principal is respectful, courteous and clearly loves the kids. Many of the teachers here are some of those wonderful people who were born to be teachers and welcome (respectful) parent interaction. But, there are also some that are burned out and consider parents necessary evils (at best). Yes, there is very little art in the classroom (funding issue); but, there is a private art teacher that teaches there after school. Not a perfect solution, but the best possible one given the circumstances. That is typical of the way Westview treats every situation. They do not claim to be perfect, but they are working with the situation (funding, dictated curriculum etc ) they have - not with the situation they wish they had. I do recommend the spec. ed. program (the speech dept. is excellent!). Unfortunately, some of the teachers need to recognize that a student with communication difficulties has those same difficulties at home. Parents in that situation will need to ask plenty of detailed and pointed questions to those teachers if they are to know what is happening at school.

Westview is the best Elementary School! We have been at the school for almost 5 years now, and our children LOVE Westview! Our principal, the teachers, and the staff are exceptional, and truly care about the children. I strongly disagree with some of the comments that Westview is run like a prison. The school has almost 800 students, you have to have some rules and guidelines or the school would be a complete chaos. The students have 30 minutes for lunch. Yes, the FIRST 15 minutes are silent, but only to ensure the children's safety. How many times have we heard about children choking on their food while talking and eating? This is a safety issue, and the schools number one priority is the welfare of our children! The second half of the lunch time can be used for talking to friends. Secondly, bullying is NOT tolerated by the principal. She will do everything in her power to handle and stop any bullying issues. Thirdly, the teachers WELCOME any kind of parent involvement, from making copies to reading groups. They are very grateful for any assistance. We have the best principal, the best teachers, and the best staff here at Westview! We are blessed to be part of the school!

As a parent of two children who attended Westview K-5 I was extremely pleased with my children's education. Westview was the first step for my child's education and it exceeded my expectations. My kid's were well prepared for each step along the way. I always felt that the teacher had my child's best interest at heart and their learning was their first priority.This school has great leadership under it administration. I would recommend Westview to anyone who is wanting to attend a school with an enriched learning environment.

My children have attended Westview for the last 8 years. While no school is perfect this is a great school. I am very discouraged with the previous reviews. Those reviews in no way represent the vast majority of parents that send their kids to Westview. We have a fantastic group of parents that work very closely to help the school in various ways. In my experience usually the problems arise from lack of communication between one or more parties or a willingness to communicate issues. I have seen many examples of families working side by side with the staff and teachers to help make learning situations better for individual students. I am very thankful for the wonderful experience my children have had and are having attending Westview Elementary.

I would not recommend Westview to anyone. We moved to this area specifically for this school. I must say it has been quite a disappointment. It is ran like a prison. Children aren't encouraged to use their own imaginations. Parental involvement seems to be discouraged. The curriculum is subpar. I know children in other schools in the same grade as my child and the curriculum is far more advanced and with the teaching styles in these schools the children are far more engaged.

Horrible school period! You wouldn't believe what goes on at this school! Police come in because the staff bully children! The principal finds out about this and does nothing! How can you bully children and still have a job? Parental involvement is slim, Daily 5 is missing in our classroom, classroom library is unavailable to kids, administration is unprofessional, and the way they treat the children is just awful! Don't send your kids here if you have other options! Trust me. I have been to schools across the county and a lot of the schools with lower test scores are even better. Why? They differentiate instruction and work hard! I'm not sure about the other teachers, but the last 2 that we had didnot.

We moved to the area 2 years ago and kept hearing exceptional things about Westview and how great of a school it was and that it was as close to private school as you can get. We have been highly dissatisfied with our experience at this school. Our child who once enjoyed school, dreads going there. I feel like the administration lacks motivation, as well as, a compassion for children (especially ones with learning disabilities). Bullying has been a severe issue where it seems they just want to sweep under the rug and pretend like it's not happening at 'their school', however, it is worse here than many schools I come across. We have also experienced bullying directly from the staff to our child. We reported it to the schoolboard with no avail. We have had one good teacher (Mrs. Reynolds--amazing!) out of the bunch, however, I feel the rest lack enthusiasm and good parent/teacher communication. I feel that most do it because 'it's their job', rather than love and passion for their job and their students. I think they tend to do the bare minimum that it takes for them to keep their job. We are looking into other options for schooling to avoid sending our other children here.

Westview Elementary is one of the best schools in Hamilton County and in the Chattanooga area, it's slim pickings. The teachers are caring and dedicated to teaching. Ms. Margo Williams truly cares about the school and its students. She and the teachers are always willing to meet with parents who want to discuss their kids' academic progress, or lack thereof, and work with them to enhance their childrens' learning experience. I would've given Westview 5 stars but the front office staff is somewhat rude. They should smile more often and not make parents wait forever to get things done. Heck, if they don't want to work the front desk of a public school where it gets hectic, they should get another job...

Superb School, Best in all of Hamilton County! The Literacy program at Westview is extraordinary, they go above and beyond. Bringing in well known authors and tips on how to have your children excel. They also have daily opportunities to have hands on art time. I help once a week in the kindergarten program and help the children in art time. We made spring flowers using their hands, such a cute idea. The children love seeing their artwork outside the class room walls. During the Fall we painted t-shirts and the children got to wear them to school. I love how the children get to show off the artistic work for all to see. We also made ty dye shirts to wear on our field trips. Kids just love art time. Parents love seeing the finished work. The children get to have weekly computer lessons and even a little foreign language lessons. daily outside play foe fitness and P.E. They also have a excellent choir techer. The Library is awesome and the children learn so much from her. These are the kinds of things you only find in high price Private schools but, all this is going on in this wonderful public school. This is a wonderful school with many great things for children to love.

My husband and I purchased our home in order for our child to be zoned for Westview. Unfortunately, we have been extremely disappointed. This is not a high quality school. They do not offer art as an elective. Art is rarely incorporated into the kindergarten curriculum. (Our child is lucky if she completes one basic art project once a month w/ paper and glue) The children rarely bring home anything. Literacy isn't promoted very much. I haven't seen any literacy extension activities and the children are not read to on a daily basis. The principal thinks that this is fine. Mrs. Williams is not a good listener and isn't very respectful. I have received an attitude from her. I don't understand how someone can be a principal at a school with a lack of interpersonal relation skills. I treat her with respect. Why can't she treat me with respect in return? I would not recommend sending my child here. My child does not even enjoy kindergarten. My daughter was excited to start school and now she dreads going each day. Bullying also goes on at this school in kindergarten!

I am a father of a new K student of this school. Yes, the administrative staffs were not nice in terms of entering the school. I found so many parents wanted their children to enroll this school even if they were not living in this school zone. The school staffs were quite strict in tihs aspect. I heard some parents cheated their address to make their children enrolled in this school. Furthermore, there is no apartment in this school zone, which cause the enrollment more difficult. Besides entering this school, the program itself and the quality of teachers are trenmendous. The staffs are also very kind and responsive to the parent of students. Once you know the quality of this school, you cannot but love it. To get more information, visit Hamilton county web-page.

Due to the job situation, i moved to Chattanooga in 2010, and the most important thing for my family was the school for my children. There are quite good schools on the Lookout and Signal mountain areas. However, if your family do not fit into these areas, this school, westview, is almost the best option for your children. After investigating for 3 months, I chose this school for my children. So far, I am so satisfied with my choice. Thank Westview! Thank Greatschool!

I think the comments the people are making should NOT be judged by others, just because their situation does not apply to you. Everyone is entitled to rate the school according to their level of observation and participation. Westview is a good school, my child is happy there and I have no complaints. I think there is some racism which is sad, but it's everywhere. The school is most certainly overcrowded and yes, certain incidents and issues are swept under the rug, I guess that's to make the school more sound. One of the 3rd grade teachers need to restrain from yelling at the kids all the time. On meet the teacher night, there was no interest from the teacher. The attitude was just "doing my job" , which make me stay on top of everything my child does in her classroom. Apison needs another school built too much overflow.

I moved with my family 1.5 years ago from out of state. I was told we would be in Westview's zone. After moving, I called again and was told Westview. I show up to sign up for his classes and was flatly denied on the basis that I did not own my own property. I was then told that because the school is overcrowded, only some people were "allowed" in. Anyone who lives with family due to economic or personal reasons are forced into other schools. The situation has gotten so bad, that they are now denying apartment dwellers entrance also. It is not a coincidence that Apison has twice the level of poor students. I have to drive past the zoned bus stop to take my son to his a few miles away. Worse yet, there are no plans to stop the overcrowding, if ever, for years.

Westview Elementary is a wonderful school and the primary reason we made our last move six years ago. We wanted our children zoned for that school and that has been the best decision we could have made. We've gone through all grades there with the first child and are working our way through a second time. Each teacher has been extraordinary and the administration is top notch and very caring. Our children are enrolled in the after school art program which has also exceeded expectations! If you're considering Westview, you're on the right track. No need to spend money on a private education when Westview is available!

The teachers are great and I loved the after school art program, however the administration is horrible. We have lived elsewhere in the US and internationally and I have not experienced such poor administration. Trying to contact the school during the summers for shipment of records (both moving to and from the area) has been next to impossible. Testing for any special needs is seriously delayed. Even the school nurse gets an attitude when you tell her she is not following your insturctions. They expect leniency and forgiveness when they do not follow their own policies, however they do not give you the same benefit. My children (and I) absolutely loved their teachers, but when the children complain about how mean the principle is (and you agree) it makes it difficult to show a united front with authority and tell them she deserves their respect.

As parents, we could not be happier with the education our daughter has received in her three years at Westview Elementary. Her teachers have been wonderful. We respect and appreciate the job Ms. Williams does as principal. I have a very hard time believing the story from the college student. Everyone has a bad moment now and then, but it is hard to believe that Ms. Williams was that rude. Perhaps the student has some other agenda or may simply need to grow up. I would give the school five stars, but I don't give out five star ratings. I do agree with another poster that says we are getting a private quality education at a public school.

We have two children at Westview, and LOVE it. I only wish the school offered a visual arts class instead of having it outsourced as an after school program ( it was a GREAT program put together by Jennifer Strickler), however I believe it should be offered to ALL children by the school, not just those willing to pay for it as an after school activity! The teachers have been wonderful and caring. Our children are are brighter and well rounded, partially due to their experiences through the school. Thank you goes out to all staff, our children are getting a great eduacation in a safe and fun environment.

I am relieved and appalled as I read through these reviews. They confirm, for the most part, what I already know. The school's curriculum and teachers are, overall, outstanding. My child has gone from an excellent student to an outstanding one. We moved during the school year and her teacher made special efforts to bring her up to par in areas that her last school didn't focus on. Now she's ahead of the game--even learning in a few short weeks what others have learned in a year! Her teacher is caring and very sweet, though perhaps a bit unorganized. As far as the principle goes though, when I called to voice a concern that fell under her responsibilities (several teachers invovled, etc), she was hostile, rude, angry, and just outright ugly towards me. Her unprofessionalism brings the whole school into doubt.

I hope the previous poster is not referring to Principal Mrs. Williams as the the 'rude un-named leader'. If so, I must take issue with that comment. Over the years, I have spent many hours helping in my kids' classrooms. Let me tell you something: this school is TOP-NOTCH. Mrs. Williams, in particular, is the greatest principal I have ever met. She has a heart of gold. She loves all those kids like they were her own. She looks out especially for the weak ones, like those with special needs. She does not tolerate any bullying whatsoever at this school. Yes, I have, on occasion, heard her yell at students if they're misbehaving. Don't we all? It's hard to manage a school of 700 students and keep everyone behaving 100% of the time. That's why this school has so few disciplinary problems. That's why your children can feel safe here.

My son has been at Westview for the past 2 years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching him learn and grow - he loves his classmates, teacher (Mrs Pirtle) and GOING TO SCHOOL!!! My wife and I both have had the opportunity to help with the classes, and go to class activities. It is exciting to be involved in a school that is so family friendly and family oriented. I have enjoyed watching teachers interact with the students - you all have done such a great job (especially Mrs Pirtle - my son had her as both his Kindergarten and First Grade teacer) Keep up the good work!! By the way, I would love to see Mrs Pirtle move to the second grade :-)

I agree with the college student. there are many teachers yelling at students, even kindergartners. The safety of the children needs to be evaluated. There is not a fence around the playgrounds and teachers DO NOT watch the children. But pointing that out to Ms. Williams makes her angry. How dare someone accuse her teachers of not doing their job! Academically, my child by far exceeded my expactations. But the saftey of my child and other children are more important.

It's impossible to express how exceptional I think Westview is in every aspect. We have excellent teachers who work with and include parents. Parental invovlement is HUGE and something that makes us all proud. The children are happy and they consistently score very well on achievement tests. The principal, Mrs. Williams, is fair, bright, and extremely diligent in managing a large staff and a school that grows in enrollement every year because our reputation is so good. You never support staff compain or express negativity. Westview like an extended family and I can't think of anything better for my kids than that.

After reading the negative comment by a visiting college student, I was prompted to add my view of the school. I have never found Mrs. Williams to be rude. She is a kind and caring woman. I am thrilled with the job she is doing as principal. I have had 3 children in Westview and am a teacher myself (though not at westview), and I have been extremely happy with this school. The office staff is courteous and friendly, the teachers whom we have had have been professional, the nurses have been as concerned as they would be with their own children. We discovered this when we had a child break her arm and the nurse called our home a few times to check on her. We are thrilled to have our children at such a school as Westview Elementary.

As a proud parent of two Westview Elementary students, I am very surprised at the comments the last person made about our school. Not only do we have a beautiful school, but we have wonderful, caring and intelligent teachers. As for our principal, Margo Williams, makes the school as great as it is. She loves her students and staff, and it shows. I moved to Tennessee from California, prepared for devestation due to my ignorance. What a blessing this move has been for us, because of our wonderful school!

I think this is a nice school. Parents are able to be very involved. It has the right amount of structure.

My daughter started here in the second grade. We have loved the new school, and her teachers have been the greatest. My daughter is now a fifth grader reading above average, and very sharp in her other studies. Margo Williams has always been very professional and friendly with our family. Mrs. Williams carries herself and her duties with pride. I think it is good for our kids to see Mrs. Williams as strength and honor to our school.
