Westside Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

This school is an absolute nightmare. If you have a child with a disability run away from this school as quickly as possible. The principal is incompetent, dishonest, ignorant, prejudice, and a bully. My child (with special needs) was left out in the hall for multiple hours a day. She was humiliated and mistreated. I could go on and on about how awful this school is.

First grade was a hard transition for my son. Combine the jump from half day school to full day with his sudden leaps forward in his reading skills and interest in learning and he had a hard time finding his "groove". His teacher was so interested in helping him that she collaborated directly with my husband and I on a plan to help him. The plan included things that could be done at school and at home to challenge him in a productive way. The combined efforts have been more than just successful.

Westside Elementary is the perfect school for my son to transition from Pre-School to Grade School at. Everyone at the school from the Principal down was amazingly helpful and welcoming for him the first few days to ease the transition. Now he has come home from school happy and each morning he is excited to go back. My son is excited to learn and the staff there fosters this enthusiasm, he often says "Dad, did you know...." and is excited to share the things he has learned. Thank you Westside Elementary!

The teachers at Westside are tremendously dedicated, and the principal may be the best administrator we've ever associated with in our 10 years of sending kids to various elementary schools. Westside also has a lot of community/parental support, as evidenced by all the activities and special events that are put on throughout the year. The school itself is in a very safe neighborhood, which puts us at ease sending our kids there. The lunch program is average, which is why I didn't 5 stars.

I read the other parent's review and would like to offer a different point of view. My kids have always scored among the highest in their grades and though they are not being individually tutored by their teachers, they are being pushed to achieve more - this is a public school after all. I have had nothing but positive interactions with the principal, and when my child was an innocent by-stander at another student's sometimes violent outbursts, it was handled completely to my satisfaction and that child was not allowed to continue at Westside. I know there are ample opportunities for parents to express their concerns to both teachers, principal and PTO, as I have interacted with all of them. I was pleased with the numerous school-wide activities they hosted - ranging from Fall Family Carnival, Donuts with Dudes, Danishes with Dames, Dr. Seuss Night, Family Math Night, Kindergarten Reading Night and I believe a few more. I agree that the school isn't the newest, but it is definitely clean and has currently gone through a complete remodel of the front/reception area. I have never felt as though my children were unsafe as I understand how the door lock system works and I believe all doors can be locked with the push of a button. If you live in this area, Westside has among the highest test scores and the teachers work hard to help the students achieve that. I am proud that my children attend this school.
