Our son is autistic. He was in good hands for several years in self-contained and inclusion classes at a different Frenship ISD school. Inexplicably the district mainstreamed him to Westwind for two years. The teachers wanted us to drug him so he could "focus". He was physically disciplined by his teacher without notifying us. The child finally said something 7 days later or we may well never have known. An independent specialist stated no drugs were necessary he's not hyper and is extremely docile. Dr. stated he couldn't function in general ed. classes. The specialist recommended placing him back at his original school. The district refused. We sold our house just to get him away from Westwind. His new San Francisco Bay Area school is light years ahead of Westwind. He's in a superb Special Day Class with several aides and individual support. The Director of Special Ed. is plugged in and is a thinker as opposed to the rude unprofessional Director we had to deal with at Frenship ISD. If you have an average child Westwind might be fine. If your child is disabled don't walk run from Westwind Elementary. Don't settle for subpar when so much better is to be had elsewhere.
