    Thanks Lord I was fortunate enough to find a great school for my daughter. The principal the teachers and the staff are great at West Oaks. They are willing to go that extra mile to help the students achieve their goal. Parent stay focus in your child school activities and joint the great staff of West Oaks.

    The school is definitely not in the best area but the administration and teachers are phenomenal. My daughter has done better at this school than at her previous school which was 'A' rated by the state. This is due to the spirit of the staff at West Oaks. These are people who love teaching and love kids. They find a way to get through to children who have absolutely no parental support at home. That in and of itself is a great feat. Keep your eye on this school...they will be leading the pack in the coming years.

    I agree that the area that the school is in is not the greatest. However I cannot deny that West Oaks has great teachers. We are sad to be leaving the school just not the area.

    The school is brand new and they have yet to get it together. The teachers are nice but I expected more since my children had attened a star school up north. I can say that the area where the school is located is not very nice. I have since moved due to this.
