11 Parent Reviews for West Woods Elementary School

I think the school is very good overall. Academics are strong, teachers tend to be very good, there are plenty of activities for kids. Expectations seem to have increased a lot in the three years between our kids, which is a mixed blessing. Class sizes are too big, individual attention from the teachers ...  Read more

I've done my research and will have to agree Westwoods is a great school. The front office could use a refresh as the front desk ladies don't appear to like their jobs as they are unfriendly and not helpful. They do not give a good first impression.

We have had nothing but great experiences with West Woods. Great teachers and strong administration combine for excellent academic achievement. Both our sons have gone on to higher levels successfully, ready for anything middle and high school hand them.

This school is great for a self sufficient student that doesn't need any extra help or challenge. Some of the classrooms are at 30 students to one teacher. Teachers have too many students to offer individualized learning. There are very few field trips and the upper grades do no science experiments ...  Read more
