Great school! I have three kids enrolled this year 2014/2015. K, 4th and 6th. My kids teachers are outstanding and always keep me informed about how the kids are doing. Safety is also very impressive, there's definitely not going to be any strangers getting in that school or at least past the front ...  Read more

I am an eight grade student here and I have gone here since around 2nd grade. This school is honestly all I know but it was pretty mediocre with the administration from the past few years. But recently we have gotten a new administration and moral has improved and I'm almost certain those previous reviews ...  Read more

The current administration (Truett and Hollowell) at this school is the lowest level of life! They are horrendously cruel to parents and students. There are two upper grade bully teachers (Thompson and Mitchell). I can't wait for summer, as we are enrolling our child in another school!

My kids have been at the school for the past 4 years. They're now in 2nd and 4th grade. Since my kids are in the lower grades, I haven't witnessed the bullying other reviews are talking about. The main reason I keep my kids at this school are the teachers -- my kids have had great teachers every year. ...  Read more

I a student who goes there. I left an A rated school for this one. Over all, it's a great school, but there are a lot of bullies. The teachers are great, and really try to help me when I don't have the best grades. But their methods for stopping bulling aren't the best. But what counts is: their methods ...  Read more

My children moved to this school from a school in the Peoria School District 3 years ago. The school my children moved from had a very high amount of parent volunteers and involvement. Most of the teachers had been there for 3 years or more (in most cases, a lot more). They had student of the month ...  Read more

My oldest daughter attended Kindergarten at Western Peaks. Although we liked her teacher, we did not like the school. The classroom size was very large especially for Kindergarten. Our daughter would come home with 1/2 - 2 hours of homework every evening because the teacher couldn't cover the material ...  Read more
