I like the fact that West Academy provides one-on-one classroom instruction for students in order to ensure that they are academically successful. After my children spent several years at one of the 4 largest private schools in Tarrant County, they transferred to West Academy because I felt that they were not being prepared for college to the extent that they should have been during their high school years. Now, one is consistently on the Dean's list in Honors College at a large 4 year University and the other is on his way to the same university next year. I cannot begin to tell others how great the teachers and administrators are at West Academy.
My teen became troubled at the beginning of her 9th grade year. She was skipping class, the teachers did not know who she was, noone on campus knew where she was during lunch etc. Thank God for West Academy's teachers and administration.Now, her self esteem has increased, they have figured out her educational weaknesses and have provided an ample amount of time to concentrate on that particular subject, the student counseling is great, they monitor students very closely, the tuition plan is affordable and they work with you, they assist with college prep, they really care about the kids. My child's behavior has improved, her grades are soaring and she has learned respect. This is the best school for any teenager. The staff, the location, the tuition, the curriculum and the overall approach to helping our kids are GREAT.She is a 10th grader and talking about college :-)
This past year has made a total difference to our grandchild. The public school would not let him advance to his own levels and all went wrong. West Acadamy and the staff were a God sent in his direction. He finished this year with 1 point from a 4.0 average for the year and we hope he can continue his education with them. The owner and staff are concerned not only with educating these students but showing frienship and respect to the student themselves. Thank God for this school.
