Our daughter has been at this school for 2 years (2nd & 3rd grade) and we have had all positive experiences. The principal and front office staff are over the top friendly and willing to help out with questions, concerns and ideas. The teachers that I have worked with are extremely driven and truly take time to cultivate each child at their academic level. I love the diversity in the classrooms. Many countries are represented in just her classroom alone. This year the class sizes got too large for 3rd grade...but administration stepped in and hired another teacher to ensure kids could get the one on one attention needed. On top of a fantastic school...the community itself is just wonderful. Very active PTA also.

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I have not had any experience with this issue at Westridge.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
I do not have personal experience, but I have seen staff and teachers bend over backwards to accommodate children with needs outside of the basic classroom structure.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Leadership is open and willing to listen to new ideas and concerns. The only issue I have seen is the way in which the cafeteria atmosphere is handled.

Develops character: Agree


- a
In the classroom and halls, this is completely accurate. However, in the cafeteria, changes should be made. Students are allowed to be extremely loud and unruly. There really should be stronger repercussions for misbehavior during lunch. Aside from that, there is no issue that I've seen.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Of the two years we've been here (2nd/3rd grade), both teachers have been fantastic about keeping parents in the loop of how children are doing. We use 'Remind' app for announcements from the teacher and also for us to reach out with questions and concerns. I always receive a prompt reply. Any concern I've brought up, I have consistently received communication and resolution immediately.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Each teacher has their own approach I'm sure, but in my experience, all homework for the week is given out on Monday and due Friday...gives families the flexibility to miss a night due to extracurricular, etc. We love this. Also homework that is done via IXL, Reading Eggs, etc. can be accessed from home to do work that teachers can view from school.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
There is usually not a lot, at this age, but is fair when there is, consistant reminders on rreading and papers sent home how to communicate and work with your children on the day and preparation for tests.

My child has been in this school since kindergarten and now 2nd grade. Child had self esteem issues in the begining after moving from Europe. Teachers and all staff have been, and still are very supportive, constructive and have helped my child gain a confidence in which wasnt there before. Went from not liking school to loveing it. All the teachers, principal, vice principal and staff, seem to know every childs name and goes out of their way to help improve quality of learnign and life at this school. a huge Thank you for Westridge ES Woodbridge!
