Westside is a wonderful, enriching & safe environment for my son. The teachers are excellent and the principal is involved & has set the school on a great path. Because there is a sizable enough population that are on a free & reduced lunch, they keep the class sizes low. Sometimes when you have that size of a economically disadvantaged school, test scores lag, but not here. It's the best of both worlds. I'll be sad when my son graduates this year, but know the middle schools are just as good. We elected to move into this district & I've been delighted with our decision.
I think Westside is a great school. My child is only in Kindergarten, but I have already had some great experiences. They offer a lot of programs for students. They are active in the 'Watch D.O.G.S' program that gets fathers involved in the school. I have participated in this and it has allowed me to meet several teachers and the office personell. I think it is a great school and Im excited for my second child to start there this year.
Westside is a wonderful school. They teach your children about above the line behavior and they reward children for good behavior. The principal is very hands on and very helpful. They offer a lot of activities such as math club, homework club, orchestra etc. The teachers are always willing to help and the parents are very involved. Most of the committees at westside are parent built. Westside helps each child individual and offers extra help when needed such as poohs room for children that need a little help with reading. I would definitely recommend westside elementary.
