I've been pleasantly surprised with my experience at this school. I think they have created an inviting and challenging environment for kids. Currently, they are the only STEM certified elementary school in South Fulton and with my daughter being in the gifted program I can attest to the rigor of their science and math classes first-hand. My daughter will be going in March on a 3 day science field trip to Tybee Island, needless to say that we are super excited about that! Overall, I feel lucky that this is our zoned school.
I currently have two students that attend this school and have one that went through it but is now in middle school. Overall I say one of the better schools for the area and the kids are really happy there. They are improving each year and I can see the difference. They are even working on becoming STEM certified. I think three things hold this back from being a great school. One parent involvement, two the curriculum can be a little more consistent year to year, three there needs some more solid extracurricular opportunities like sports and music.
I go to this school and it lacks in a lot of places. It is supposed to be a fit school. It truly is not the school food is horrible and there is hair in the food most of the time. I only go to the school because it is the closest school to my home. Parents don't be fooled by the teachers and staff. In the school year of 2012-2013 the newest vice principal told kids clearing their thourts to stop and choke. Mabey at the school has some good teachers like mrs. Little 2nd grade teacher and a few more. Over all I would not want you to make the misstake my parents did just from going to the school for 5 complete years and going into six there are some good things but mostly bad. If your kid goes to this school make sure they pack a lunch because they won't like it. That's all I have to say.
I am very disappointed with this school. My daughter is currently a first grader at E.C. West . After reading reviews I was very excited about my child attending this school. In my experience, the school lacks teachers and leadership that care about the students. As far as academics is concerned, I feel as though the teachers give a lot of busy work instead of work that will force the student to think. My child will not be returning to E.C. West next school year. This school year alone has been horrible! Hopefully the school gets its act together real soon.
