This school has experienced teachers at each grade level who are dedicated to their students' achievement. Some are outstanding. It is a very well organized school with experienced administrative staff. It also has a committed PTA organization with parents who actively support teachers and students and provide opportunities for extra curricular clubs and events as well as fundraising. HIghly recommended.Read Full Review

I'm writing this review as a reaction to the May 2014 review. The reviewer could have been us. We moved to the school system from another state in 2012. We're likely the 'most different' of the parents (same-sex - two dads.) But our experience has been the opposite. We love the school. We love it so much that we permanently bought a house a few blocks from Westridge to remain in the school. Our experiences with teachers, faculty, staff and parents have been phenomenal. All are genuinely concerned about our kids academic development and happiness. They've truly gone far above our greatest expectations. Our kids enjoy school and they're doing great. The homework load can seem extreme, but we feel strongly that they're getting an extraordinary education.Read Full Review

If you fit into the "norm" and are at the school from the time you started school, it may be alright. If, however, you move from somewhere elese/are a little different, the school is not as good. They don't seem to be able (or willing) to help if your child needs a little help. My son hated the school, and dreaded going the whole time he was there. He like his other elementary school (in another state) and now loves his Junior high (Indian Hills). Read Full Review
