    I love (LOVE) West Manor! I have one child that matriculated through WM to Young one in the 1st grade and two on the way in next year from Pre-K. The teachers and staff are amazing. The all male detail during drop off makes the school feel safe. You have real men guarding the frontline of the school as the children are dropped off and picked up. They open doors hold umbrellas direct traffic...its great to see men actively participating. Academically the school can't be beat. Because it is a smaller school the children get more focused attention and the teachers really get to know the children. They understand how they learn and really direct the learning towards the children. Test prep is important but it is not treated like the ultimate destination. They believe in total child preparedness and it shows. My kids have had the same teachers and I am very impressed! This school is a hidden gem that I hope stay hidden and unspoiled.

    Three of my children have attended this wonderful school. All of my children Attended private school prior to West Manor. All three have thrived. After 5 th grade my daughter was accepted into an elite private school in Buckhead. She was thoroughly prepared and excelled academically and socially. This school is a quite secret in the Cascade community. The resources do differ from Buckhead schools but when you look at the whole child it has been a good fit for us and we do supplement their education with enriching cultural activities and private tutoring.

    West Manor is a decent school. I have 2 kids there and have found it to be a great option as a public neighborhood school. THe teachers are nice and professional and there do not seem to be many discipline problems. The parents and families care about education and it shows with the preparedness fo the students there. The real selling point for us this is a small school and my kids are thriving there.

    I have two students at West Manor this year. I am most impressed with the progress reports the teachers send out. The Daily home work and science and social study projects. The classroom and grade contest really help my students enhance their learning skills. I had two older students to attend West Mannor. One graduate from high school with honors and is attending collehe. The other one is a governor merit student and will take college courses next year along with her high school courses. A BIG P L U S for west manor is TUTORING OF ALL STUDENTS. Students are didided in to small groups. All of the teachers and sometimes the principal take part in this after school activity. THE TEACHERS AT WEST MANOR WORK VERY HARD TO HELP OUR STUDENTS. THE TEACGERS AT WEST MANOR WORK VERY HARD TO PREPAR OUR

    I have 2 childrenpresently in 2 and 4th grades. They have both attended since kindergarten. West Manor is a small school with many caring teachers. They work hard to teach all the children and this shows in the test scores. However there is little time for the fine arts music or other creative aspects of learning. And the Spanish instruction is a joke.

    This school is amazing. This is my son's last year and I have not once had a complaint about any curriculum teacher or student. The programs are always great the PTA meetings are always organized and each day when my son gets in the car he has learned something new. Parents if you have driven pass this school and have any doubts about what school your children should attend this definitely the one.

    The teachers nor the principal are friendly. They make you feel very unwelcome. The teachers I have encountered have no personality. They seem to only be there for a paycheck and not the children. My child will not be returning to this school.

    This school is not what it professes to be. It is a mirage of what a school should be. There is much bullying and nick picking. The principal is not a strong leader. I would not enroll my child in this school. Everyone seems above themselves for some reason... Such a shame.
