Aside from a few resentful uninvolved parents, this school is excellent!!! But most parents realize it's a partnership between the teachers, parents, and students that helps make students successful. The kids are made college ready and they are given great academic, goal setting, and planning skills. Could the community get more involved? Absolutely! But I've watched this school and teaching staff stay late tutoring, giving extra time to work with parent's schedules, and work miracles with difficult struggling student for over 15 years. I am proud to say my son is college bound, prepared, and a product of West Hurst Elementary where he spent 6 years building a phenomenal foundation for his continuing education!!!

My son attended Hurst Hills last year and we were really scared to move to West Hurst when we bought out new home. Wow, were we silly to worry! Not only was our teacher fantastic, but I had interaction with the school counselor, the principals, other teachers, the front office staff, the school nurse, the librarian and the cafeteria staff during the past year, and every single one was positive, professional & helpful. I am VERY impressed with this school & how well everyone knows the children. Not only my child's name & a bit about him, but all the kids! I volunteered in the library one day & the librarian knew every kid & even spoke French with one student because he knew the child was originally from France and they "both enjoy the practice." Parent involvement is awesome & any parent who wants to volunteer is welcome, following a simple background check. I noticed the count Monday & over 4000 hours were served this year, so far. Multiple parent education programs are offered during the year (such as Love & Logic, & helping your child with TAKS testing readiness & anxiety. They include child care & dinner, usually. What a gem this school is, we feel so blessed to be part of it!

The teachers here are great, however, the principal and office staff are rude and very disorganized.

The worst school ever, bad food, bad kids, worse teachers, ugh need I go on? It's size is not relative to its academic achievement ratings, my child got a 40 on a 4th grade TAKS test, I don't call that bad students, I call that bad teaching.
