Faculty and staff strive to challenge students in their education at West. Constantly searching for opportunities to create an ever-growing enthusiasm for learning and critical thinking. As a district, our motto is "One Team, One Purpose!" That is our ultimate goal: to prepare students for their next journey in life and encourage them in their endeavors. Every teacher is well aware that we have the opportunity to make a difference in children's lives . Each day, every year! As a third grade teacher, my reward is knowing that I have made a positive difference in a child's growth and development. They depend on us and look to us for guidance. I think,as educators, we should always be trying to improve and search for ways, to increase our effectiveness and teaching style. I consider five stars to be perfect. But if we are always looking for ways to improve, we will never have five stars. For the last 3 years, we have been implementing a guided reading program, including a number of staff training on reading/writing workshop. We are in desperate need of up-to- date reading material for whole class and small group. $5,000 would be a dream come true!

I wrote a review on this wonderful school and began raving about my son Christopher's teacher. Silly me forgot to tell you her name. Ms. Brooke Thomas 2nd grade teacher! This teacher is as good as it gets! Never did I as a child have such a teacher. I had some good ones, but never one that had me so interested in learning the way she has my son. also, I do not ever recall having a principal that seems to care as much as the one hear at West. We came from a different city last year and little did we know that we hit the jackpot! This is an amazing school.Thank you for having such a womderful group of teachers that seem to care and a leader in a principal & vice principal that is truly outstanding... Thanks again- Lacee, a parent

The teachers at West Elementary are trully amazing. They not only focus on the academics but they focus on the childrens social skills and provide a very safe and loving enviornment. Sometimes the children may not have a great home enviornment but their school envirnment is fantastic, so kids feel like they are trully loved and cared for.

My child and I had the best first year of school experience ever. Mrs. Brannon and her assistant Mrs. Bainbridge were phenomenal in their deliverance and participation. I am very proud to say my little boy attended West Elementary at Arlington.
