    Amazing Staff! From the minute my children started this school three years ago we got a warm welcoming. My children felt very comfortable with their teachers and staff. Mr. L the principle is very hands on and knows all the kids by name. I feel my children are in a safe and positive environment in class and on the playground at all times. Thank you West Heritage Staff for making great memories for my children! Keep up the good work.

    Great School with high standards great teachers and fun academic extra programs. The principal Mr.L is energetic and involved. He tries to learn all the students names and attends events out of school hours to encourage the students. Great teachers are what really makes this a special school. Mrs. Ashcraft is amazing! My child grew leap and bounds in her care. We often run into her on the weekends at the library checking out books for the class true dedication giving up your weekends to improve your class. Mrs. Bustomonte and Mrs. Cope are wonderful as well. This is a great school in the Etiwanda School District.

    I think that West Heritage is an excellent school that has teachers that are dedicated caring and well prepared. I have had a child in Ms. Martinez and Mrs. McIntosh class and have been very pleased by both teachers preparedness and knowledge as well as professionalism. West is the best.

    West Heritage is an Awesome school. I had three kids go through and I could never say a bad thing about it. The Teachers are so great My 9 year old is very smart and Was recognized right away. He was challenged to be the best he could be. Another thing that makes this school so great is the family oriented atmosphere. I think that a great school and scholar come from good teachers and good parents. I my self have moved away from Fontana and 8 months later still miss it. This school is and was a blessing and any child who has the fortune to attend West Heritage is in for a wonderful experience. My only regret is my 5 year old will not get go there and have the learning time of his life.

    My daughter has attended this school for the last 2 years and I have been very please with the education she has received under Mrs Meath and Miss Gardner. Mrs Thol the principal is very involved with WHE image and improvement. My child came from a private school and has been challenged and has continued to grow and learn.
