Western is a great school with great teachers. It has a reputation for breeding very "smart kids". I know many teachers personally. Athletics are wonderful as are the coaches and voluteers. However if your child struggles at all they will have a hard time. If you are smart and easy to teach you will be golden. Otherwise you won't have a chance. If you have a child like this you will have to look outside of the school for tutoring and help. Teachers are much too busy to give a lot of one on one and they have no patience or time for difficult kids. This is no less true at Western Primary then it is anywhere else. That is why I give the school three stars. It's not always the teachers fault. They are under extreme amounts of pressure as well and they don't always agree with how things are "supposed" to be. We are experiencing this first hand with our youngest son. He is very intelligent and sweet but he's "nothing like his older brother" who is so highly regarded (thank god). My youngest will always be at a disadvantage because my oldest casts such a huge shadow through no fault of his own! It's just the way it is these days.
