This school is great. My child is learning so much and it is located in a good residential area

I wished this school would make changes, but it never did to my dismay. My child never said anything bad about school and the teacher would always do a day by day status (negative) behavior of my child and in return my child withdrew. My child is not one to act up, but something was not right. All ...  Read more

As an educator, I have had the opportunity to teach all elementary grade levels, in public and private schools. I have chosen to work at Westport Heights because of its exceptional team of educators and supportive leadership, Mrs. Karen Long.

I would like to respond to the negative posts. The key to the sucess of one's child in any situation is the parent. Wesport Heights is a school with so much potential but with parents who complain rather than "do" to make changes how can things improve??? Was it beneath you to wipe the table or offer ...  Read more

Direct access to teachers & the ability to be involved with the educational program with both of my children who attend, is a wonderful bonus. The teachers take the time to work with parents/students who are serious about their education! Walking & riding bikes & talking with my children as we go to ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
