We have a 6 year old in kindergarten. He loves it here. Teachers are very kind and take time with him. I love their coloured discipline scale everyday.
I gave the school five store I love the principal she's a wonderful person
The teachers and staff here have gone above and beyond for my child and our family. My child has an IEP and requires a little more patience. My child was previously in a brand new charter here in town and was pushed aside like a nuisance. Westside has been the difference in our child's life! They look out for our child, call us if necessary and have called to just praise him for a job well done. Communication is always open. Any questions I've had they answer promptly. We appreciate everyone involved with our child's development. (And as far as lunch. My child has a sweet tooth so they'd only want to eat dessert. So with that concern, they talked to us and suggested we limit the dessert days. We didn't take offense to it like others probably would. I see it as looking out for my child. Needless to say we did limit the dessert days and from then on they learned that a balanced meal is necessary even when Mom and Dad aren't there watching) when we all get involved and work like a team great things happen. Just my opinion. We Love Westside Elementary.
My thoughts exactly with the parent review from Sept 2014. The office staff is very disrespectful & disorganized, something needs to be done about this. I dread anytime I need to go to the office. The school programs have potential if you can get into them. My daughter has been trying to get into the art club & jammers programs for 3 years now and has yet to be admitted. I even visited the art teacher in the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year to reiterate my daughter's interest, but there's no room for her. She joined recorders for 2 years, but just recently quit since her friends were in the jammers group and she was not accepted at tryouts. We really struggle with her motivation and self-confidence at home, and all the work I do to support this is never reinforced at school. How disappointing. She only has 1 more year there, so she'll finish at Westside, but my son will be attending 2nd grade elsewhere. The teachers are either extremely good or just not at all. We had 2 very good years, so I hate to generalize an entire school as being poor when there are many qualified and dedicated teachers at Westside. With that said, I don't think it's a good fit for everyone.
