    I'm very proud to be a parent of West school student. The teachers are wonderful and have helped in my child's education and growth in ways I was unaware were possible. Their care and concern for all the children is amazing and I'm proud to be a part of it. These children are being provided the very best and I believe they will all grow to be strong young men and women.

    The teachers of West School are dedicated and caring. The principal's strict leadership style and obsesive concern for liability is a bit overboard for young children. Under different leadership West has the potential to be a great school.

    West Elementary School has been such a great foundation of learning for my children. The staff and parents have a great relationship. The fact that the common goal is the child and their success. I believe all of the students who attend West will grow into the wonderful leaders and people they are created to be. I can not stress enough how great a learning environment there is. Each child is taught within their ability and each child strive to out do themselves by placing real goals for matter what their 'demographic' make up is. I am so proud to be a part of West School.
