Westside Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

July 11, 2018 Submitted by a parent
My son went to Westside Elementary from kindergarten to second grade, during which time the school had a 10/10 rating on Great Schools. We relocated to Gwinnett County the summer right before his third grade year. I am not surprised to come back and see that the rating has dropped (particularly in the areas of equity) after the experience that I had with WES. My son did well in kindergarten but began to have performance issues in first grade. Although he was diagnosed with ADHD the following year while in second grade, I believe his teacher was very selective in the accommodations she provided for him inside her classroom until I met with her and the principals to set up a 504 plan. Up until that point, it seemed like she was fine with him as long as she could tell he was on his medication. Every off day seemed severely exaggerated - almost like she did not want him to succeed if I challenged her complaints and trust me, I received A LOT of complaints. Let me be clear when I say that I'm extremely supportive of teachers and respect them because I work in education. However, I was highly discouraged by the treatment my son received during his last year at WES and feel like unconscious bias was a huge factor in this treatment (he's black also). This is no reflection on the teachers who were great to him while he was there, including teachers from prior years and his IEP teachers. However, if we had stayed in Valdosta, I probably would have taken him out and put him in Highland or Open Bible moving forward. I'm happy to report that my son now attends a great school in Gwinnett County with a 9/10 rating and the same academic rigor, and is consistently on honor roll despite his diagnosis. Parent-teacher cooperation and teachers who care actually work! I pray that some things do change within WES because their are many great things about that place. Bias has no place in the classroom.
