I had the best last two years at West. They do a bunch of cool things for the sixth graders, such as The Black and White Dance and Graduation. West Elementary is an amazing school!

I lived within walking distance of west for 10 years. It started out a great school. As time has gone on it has become a rougher tougher city-ish school. I moved last year when I realized my daughter has some special needs and I did not feel they could help her. She is quiet and well behaved. The teachers were too busy working with unruly kids, or kid who come from ESL families and need extra help. I really liked west for several years, but now live across town.

I am more than happy to rate this school a 5 star school! The entire staff, from the receptionist, to the teachers, and let's not forget our principal...are the best AISD has to offer! My 6th grade son entered this school in the middle of the year, he was made to feel comfortable and was immediately accepted by everyone. The diagnostician lost no time in ensuring he was evaluated as soon as possible and was given his 'IEP' which is what we desperately needed this school to do. If you are moving to the Grand Prairie area, I highly recommend you buy a home where your child can attend this school; you will not regret it. I wish I could take my son's teachers with us to jr high. Thank you West for a great 6th grade year! Thank you especially to Mrs. Roe, Mrs. Ruiz, Mr. Bridges and Mrs. Cox!

I must say West elementary is one of the best schools out there. The teachers are very concerned about the welfare of the kids at school as well as at home. They take the time out to address the needs of all the students.

West is an amazing school! I have been teaching here for 11 years and have loved every one. I feel that the kids at West are both challenged and loved.

I am very satisfied with my experience with west my son came from a prior AISD school which I was not impressed with and was interested in putting him in private or even charter but this school let me gain confidence in public school again and I hate that he is now moving on to middle school but i still have 2 more that are and will attend West and I am sure that they will get the best of education at west the staff, volunteers and administration get my applause for a wonderful, well done job in educating children.

West is an absolutely wonderful school. My son has an IEP (for high-functioning autism) and we have had great success and teacher support. I have heard horror stories from other special ed parents in different schools/districts about not getting the attention they need - we are lucky to have West in our corner.

I have three kids, 2nd, 4th and 5th grade. Their teachers are very involved in their level of success and they got recognition every 6 weeks.

My family and I have seen great success out of our children attending West Elementary. The teachers seem to take that extra step to insure that my children get the help they need. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone.

I believe that there needs to be more minority teachers/staff at this school. The percent of minority student population and the teacher minority population is way unbalanced. I would love to see more minority teachers at this school and I am sure the minority students would too.

I think West is a wonderful school. The teachers really try to influence the students to do their very best. And they offer studies and homework assignment that encourage parents to actively participate in the learning process. My family is from Louisiana and I can honestly say that the education that they are receiving at West greatly surpasses what was offered to them in Louisiana.
