Community Rating & Reviews

    There was a lot of support for my older son at West to enable academic success. Only 21-22 in his class and we were very happy with his 3rd and 4th grade teachers. Principal is top notch and teachers make great efforts to expect everyone to perform their best have appropriate social skills and enforce a "no bully" policy. However the lunchroom playground and bus are fair game and unmonitored. Unfortunately too many clicks among kids/parents in this area are counter productive to school efforts. PTO committee chairs play favorites with their kids and those of same religion. Be on the "in crowd" or don't plan to be called on when you volunteer or plan on your kid to be included (playmates carpools parties). Many overachieving parents in this area so expectations are high but people are catty. School is very clean updated and technology supported.

    We moved to Glencoe after the winter break and cannot have been happier with the transition and the support we received from the schools. The principal took time to sit down with me (mom) and talk through their procedures/policies. They arranged a half day for my son to visit before the transition and meet children and the teachers were available whenever I needed to reach them. We couldn't be happier with the school and teachers!

    Top notch educators administration and parent involvement makes this school wonderful. The district provides excellent technology and adequate training for its teachers. Students are exposed to a great amount of real world learning.

    West School is amazing in so many ways. It teaches you so much. I love it. The new technology is great. The kids are so nice and same with the teachers. The down things are it is kind of hard when it comes to tests.
