I can't say enough about how wonderful this school has been for my son! The entire staff is caring and truely want children to suceed. My son is in kindergarden this year. He transfered from another local school & the atmospere is night and day. Ms. Lee is a wonderful & caring teacher. Ms. Neal is an awesome principal who is hands on concerning the students. It is such a welcoming and positive enviroment! I would not have my son anywhere else. The have went above & beyond to help my son suceed! They welcome and encourage parental envolvement.

I have a daughter that is in the 5th grade and is doing very well. She gets along with all of her teachers and classmates. West is a real nice school and I like their ways of teaching the children and comunicating with the children and their parents. I truely wish that all schools would opperate as well as West does! The staff is very carring and coropative. I give West and their staff two thumbs up! There are no words that could say just how great they are doing. Keep it up!
