    I cannot imagine my child having a better experience at any other school. Academics community healthy mind/body and emotional nurturing are strong points. Though like most American schools the math program is still finding its way. Nevertheless I think WES is tops!

    Our child was bored and not challenged at WES and when he began to tune out he was labeled as a possible attention deficit disorder. While his 3rd grade teacher was able to make progress with him his 2nd grade and 4th grade teachers were clueless about how to relate to him and blamed him for the problem. The principal (now retired) backed them up and we got no where. The new principal was someone who was very good with our child as the math tutor and perhaps she is making positive changes. WES is fine for many kids but we're glad we're out f there.

    After visiting the school I was very impressed with the building. After a few months of my daughter attending 3rd grade coming from Allendale school in Pittsfield MA I soon learned that she was far ahead of her classmates at WES in reading math spelling and most other subjects. I am not impressed with this school whatsoever. Even the school lunches do not offer the nutrition they should. Over all I am extremely disappointed with the school and the staff.

    WES is a new 'Green' school which integrates my childs learning with actual real world situations. The teachers are motivated and creative the parents are extremely involved in all aspects of the school and the community makes a priority to expand our childrens curriculum outside of the school. Art music history and sports are all lavished on our kids. WES is a proactive and very evolving environment!
