West EC is a great school. It has everything I was looking for in a school: good location, great testing scores and very diverse. The staff is excellent and teachers are so dedicated to their student's success. If you are looking for a school that makes you and your child feel welcomed then West EC is for you.

West has improved in this regard over the past year with better policies that better encourage developing these qualities. Honestly, parents should be developing their children with these qualities BEFORE they come to school. There will always be "bad" students (and bad parents), but the difference is a better administration, more training for teachers, and better classroom management.

The new principal and PTA president have done a good job improving West in the short term. The staff are diligent in their work and provide a great environment for the children. Looking forward to what the school can do with the recent ESSA legislation to add a GT program. Would certainly attract more high-performing students AND parents.

Great neighborhood school that is a true gem! My daughter is in kindergarten. She has flourished in both reading and math. In fact, she is now above grade level. Her teacher is very vested as well as the school community. There is also good parent involvement. I'm excited to see what lays ahead.

This is definitely a rising school. The new principal (Vroman) is very engaged and enthusiastic. The school has created some new programs in aftercare for a fee (karate and yoga once a week). The culture of the school is very positive and the children are very respectful and kind to each other. It definitely feels like a family community and there's a lot of school spirit. The preschool classes are amazing and the teachers are so enthusiastic and well-trained. I'm very happy my child is there and it's great to be a part of the school and the neighborhood. There's still some work to do regarding renovation, and I'm not sure if the school will be academically challenging enough as we get to the higher grades, but for now it's great. I really hope to see the test scores of this school rise in a couple of years.

Again, teachers try to instill these qualities. However, it is undone by the work of administration.

I believe that the teachers at this school try each and every day to instill these qualities into their students. However, the lack of support from administration frequently undermines their efforts.
