    This is our first year at this school but we have been in the area for 5 years now. My child attended private preschools in the area prior to attending WCE. We have been less than impressed with his Kindergarten teacher. Additionally he receives special services through the CCS district and while the school administrators were in possession of his IEP and all of his school records 4 months prior to him beginning the school year they waited *MONTHS* into the school year before reviewing his IEP and starting his services. I provided 2 stars for the school because I believe there are some wonderful and passionate teachers at this school as well as a very involved community of parents. However I'm not as impressed especially provided that this is purportedly one of the *best* school districts not just in the Greater Indianapolis Area but in all of Indiana. Please make sure to speak to really do your research before enrolling your child at West Clay Elementary.
