really dirty school, in the past 2 months my daughter has been sick with stomach virus's, phenomena and staph infection, not to mention what stomach virus she had, ended up giving my sons croup, her phenomena and myself viral meningitis. she has missed so much school because of how infected with germs this place is!!! she is still getting over her staph infection and i am so dissatisfied with the way the principle is handling her situation, our families situation with this school. it is unbelievable, glad to say we are looking to buy a new house that is zoned for for somewhere else. she does have a really amazing teacher tho. Ms. Rugaard is wonderful with her.

Westmeade is a great elementary school. Mr. Breese does a great job & is very alert with what is going on in his school. The office staff stays alert and is very informative with what is going on. I do feel my child is safe & negative behavior with children are dealt with in a concerned, controlled manner. Lots of ways parents & families can be involved with the school. Clubs to help children in there studies are offered (ex. dragon math club). Thank you Westmeade!

This school is horrible. Burned out teachers. Too many students per classroom. Wasp infestation. Nothing is done about troublemakers. Terrible communication.

Westmeade is a fabulous elementary school! I have two children who attend Westmeade Elementary School and have been nothing but happy with every aspect of this great little school! We are fortunate to have a principal who is approachable in every way and has provided consistent leadership for the last nine years. The faculty and staff are top notch. They do a tremendous job engaging our boys and girls academically and making sure they are successful learners. I would not want my children anywhere else!

My son just finished first grade at Westmeade. We have had a great experience educationally and he loves the school. My two other children attend private school and our experience here has been similar to that from a learning standpoint. The principal seems to be excellent and the two teachers my son has had have been wonderful. Parental involvement is outstanding. The school has definitely changed over the years and has attracted more families and is becoming a true neighborhood school. We highly recommend it.

My son is in his second year here and he and I both LOVE it. The teachers and staff are so nice and helpful. I feel so comfortable everyday knowing my child is here. We've had the best experience and will be sad to leave when it's time for him to move on for 5th grade.

We almost discounted Westmeade due to a poor review here. But decided to go find out for ourselves. My daughter, who just started 3rd grade (at the end of the year) at Westmeade loves it! I was glad that I went in to meet the wonderful staff in the office (including the principal) myself. My daughter says her favorite parts are: roller skating in gym, snack time, nice new recess equipment, switching classes for math ,really nice classmates, and her teachers! I saw the homework and it was challenging and appropriate. Good work Westmeade. We look forward to one more month of school and a good year next year.

Talented and caring teachers and staff at Westmeade Elementary create such a positive learning environment for students. There is a great sense of community at the school - parents are not only involved, but teachers and staff really welcome their involvement! There is a great synergy between the principal, staff and parents! Good leadership, great communication, and a very happy learning environment for our kids!

My son is in first grade, and we've been very happy with Westmeade. I was so impressed that the principal knew my son's name the first day of kindergarten! The teachers are wonderful, and we appreciate the specials: PE, Art, and Music. The librarian is the best in Nashville, and I love the organic garden which can be used as an outdoor classroom. I only wish that foreign language were offered.

We have been at Westmeade for two years now (my son is in the first grade) and we are so happy with his elementary experience thus far! Both his kindergarten and first grade teachers have been phenomenal; a perfect balance of firmness and kindness with a geniune love for teaching and caring for their students. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that my son is in such good hands when I can't be with him. The office staff and specials teachers are also equally wonderful. We are so grateful to be a part of the Westmeade family!

Wow. I am glad I am only registering my daughter for the last few weeks of the 4th grade here, sounds like there is no real supervision.

I have to agree with other parents--Westmeade needs a new principal. Classic case of the peter principle; he just cannot handle the students (majority are low income, disrespectful and neglected kids). Good kids are ignored and discouraged while bad kids are praised all day for not being bad...that's screwed up. Teachers are great, they just have no support from the principal and parents. School needs lots of discipline; students that are working hard, following the rules should not have to tolerate bullying, threats, property being stolen, racism, etc. Maybe a drill sergeant could turn this school around (or giving punishment when due)...seems like the principal is scared of these punky kids. If you are considering this school, check out the local apartments nearby (Forest Park and Iroqouis); that's what your children will be dealing with--think children of the corn, lord of the flies, idiocracy-- that's the educational experience they will come out with :)

We have not been impressed with the Principal. He does a great job of dealing with 'challening students'. He would do a better job being a classroom teacher not a Principal. However, the Librarian, Music teacher and P.E. all go beyond the call of duty. Mrs. Kauffman is a wonderful teacher with a lot of experience working with all kinds of kids. My daughter loves Mrs. Kauffman, her music teacher,libraian and P.E. teacher. A great crew with a challening Principal.

My daughter has been attending Westmeade for 3 years, K, 1st and 2nd. She will not be attending next yr. My daughter loves her school but she isn't the best judge because she is only 9. I have had problems with her teacher and the principal ignored my concerns. It's very disheartening.

So far, our experience has been great. Our child has a new teacher who is very enthusiastic, and the teacher has tailored the class to suit the different levels of children. The teacher expects good behavior from all - but for those children who already know how to read and write - the teacher comes up with additional tasks for them to work on. And there is Encore and separate classes for reading and such down the line. We went into Westmeade nervous and with low expectations based on the Urban legends around Nashville. So far each and everyone of our our expectations has been exceeded. More importantly, our child looks forward to going to school every day.

Ms. McIntyre is awesome. She goes beyond the call of duty in the library. Music teacher is awesome!! Art teacher is awesome!! Communication is not that great at this school. This is an area that they are working on. School focuses mostly upon at-risk children. If your child is average or above average in terms of their grades etc you are expected to re-teach skills at home. Sink or swim is present at this school. Sadly the at-risk children seem to sink in spite of the school trying to help them. Limited resources available to the average and above average children at this school. However, they try,

I have 3 children who have attended Westmeade for K - 4, and 1 who is still attending the school. We have totally loved the school and been very happy with each of the teachers our children have been under. The school is also multi-ethnic to a degree, for which we are thankful. We feel this has futher prepared our kids for the world in which we live. Westmeade is a GREAT school

I have two children who have attended Westmeade Elementary. My eldest is now in middle school and she was well prepared. My youngest is currently attending Westmeade and is being nurtured in a positive environment every day! We chose to live in the Bellevue area due to faabulous reputation of the public school system, and we haven't been disappointed.
