Patience is a virtue. I have two daughters who are English experts enrolled in this school. For the first Primary years of school (K-3) it is expected that the English will not be the primary focus (thus the Dual Language program). Students who's 1st language is English need to gain a firm grasp on the new language they are learning (in order to learn fluency). Yes, tests done in English may show the grade scores as lower, BUT the English speaking students will develop much quicker in the Upper grades as they progress rapidly in their 1st language, English. It is an 8 year commitment to bringing your child to complete Spanish/English fluency. I believe that Dual language schools should not be tested in a State Standard way. Immersion schools should develop a different type of Universal Bi-lingual Test in order to demonstrate that the program is not failing.... It is in fact progressing, beyond one language. I recommend this school if you want your child to gain knowledge beyond one language. The commitment involves the parent being supportive to the school, teachers, students, other parents, and most importantly to their own child's new embarkment of dual language proficiency.

This is one of the three poorest performing schools in the state of Washington, based on testing data. The school's enrollment has been in steady decline for the past several years. The district has been propping up enrollment at this school by allowing out-of-district students in its "dual language" program. There has been slight improvement lately in test data, as a percentage. But this is largely because of a very low baseline.

My experience with Westview started in 1996 when I was researching schools in town for my son. Westview was recommended hands down because of its great teachers. Both of my children attended Westview from Kindergarten to 8th grade. The changes in the school from 1996 to today are monumental and not in a good way. I don't even recognize the school that my son started in 1996. The Dual Language program is the only emphasis at the school and heaven forbid you should have any questions about it. The principal will suggest you transfer to a different school in the district. There are still really good teachers at Westview but the best keep transfering to other schools and now retiring. I am sad to see what the school has become. I would not recommend it to another parent.

My Child has been at west view since kindergarten and they are now in 5th grade. I feel that this school is doing a commendable thing for the Hispanic community. However the primarily English speaking children at the school are loosing a vital part of their education. I am going to be pulling my child at the end of this year due to continued low test scores, and the inability for my child to learn the subjects that are taught in Spanish. I understand this program was started due to a need for the Spanish students to learn English. However I do not think My child will be ready for high school since they have not learned what they need to be ready for high school. I feel that the idea of the school is great, and that it could be a very positive thing. However at this time, its not.
