This school is excellent! The teachers and staff are very helpful, and so is the principal, Linda Ferguson. Sixth grade seems to be very strict and academically based. I have a daughter going to 3rd grade and another daughter going to 6th grade. I would highly recommend this school for rising kindergarteners, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Westlawn has a very good Advanced Academics Program.
Great school with a great staff my kids love it and enjoy the teachers and staff
The staff that works here is amazing, they always have a smile for you, help as much as they can with any concern as parents. My child has been in this school for 4 years and we only had one not so great teacher, the other 3 had made an excellent job with my kid education.
Sending our first kid to kindergarten was a scary concept after a small preschool environment, but we were immediately comforted after the orientation. The K teachers were so nice and friendly. Everyone provided all the answers to our questions. Miss Escudero and Mrs Bonazza have been so helpful easing us in to the school year. The renovations are coming along and look incredible! The PTA events have been great, we are really thankful to have such a great neighborhood school!
A wonderful staff does wonderful things with a wonderfully diverse study body.
This is a Great School, The Principle and the Admin staff are excellent. They really take a lot of effort in doing everything to make the child excel. Parents should take an equal role with the school to see their children improve.
I have two children who have attended Westlawn Elementary School. The current principal and staff have made our experience there one of the best we could ever imagine. They have been caring, helpful and kind to us and to our children and the education they received was exactly what we had hoped for as members of the Fairfax County Public School system. I rate this school and its educators very highly and will be very sad to say goodbye next year as our youngest moves on to middle school. We, as parents, feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to have our children attend Westlawn Elementary School.
The staff and administration are very enthusiastic and helpful to younger kids, although there are a few exceptions. The school is sanitary for the most part. The cafeteria offers a seperate table for kids who have peanut allergies. As usual, schools tend to have bullies and this isn't much of a difference but the administration and counselors are willing to take action. Overall, the school is good and will provide the necessary education.
This school is the MOST Greatest school in the world!!!The teachers are fantastic!And when their is a new stutent in our school everone helps him/her with anything!
I was a student at Westlawn Elementary School back in 1986. The best year a had was in the 1988 1st grade class of Ms. Christine Stunkard. That was over 10 years ago but up to now i can still remember how i enjoyed being in Ms. Stunkard's class and how that year was the most inspirational year during elementary. I am very grateful that i got to know her and be in her class.
Three of my four children attended Westlawn in the '90's. We were very pleased with the quality of education, and were certainly impressed with the dedication and compassion of the teaching staff. We miss our old school!
