I had two children attend this school. I have to say that this school is one of the best schhols i have ever seen. The teachers there really do care anout the children. The principle is amazing. She is so loving and trys hard to get all the children involved in school activitys as well as the parents. The special ed department si great. They have a great aid that work with my children. We have moved from Memphis but we still stay incontact with my childrens teachers and sschool staff. If we move back to Memphis my children will attend this school in a moment. They attended other schools in Memphis and I did not like any of them, other then one of my daughters teachers. Westhaven cowboys are the best. Go Westhaven!
