    In my experience with West Fannin my children are receiving the best education possible. The staff is always so encouraging and uplifting no matter the situation. All parents are strongly encouraged to participate in their child's education. There are many volunteer opportunities and they even offer training for volunteers. The teachers are dedicated. The principal. Mr. Ensley is the most dedicated I have ever seen and I have been a parent for 24 years. When my Son Caleb first came last year he was withdrawn and having several other issues. Mr. Ensley took him under his wing personally to encourage Caleb. It brought out his confidence and he is now thriving.

    I think this school is wonderful. The teachers are very easy to talk to as well as the administration and school nurse. I am very proud that my child attends WFES.

    My daughter has attended this school off and on throughout Kindergarten and 1st grade and now 2nd grade. The teachers are great and very attentive. I feel that the school could have more parent involvement though.
