We feel so fortunate to be part of the West community. Our son is currently in PK3 and is absolutely thriving.

We chose West for our kids because it is a good learning environment for them - safe, and positive. The principal sets a great tone for the students and staff, and the teachers are wonderful. Our daughter is learning, making friends, and having fun at it too. The building style is a bit dated (hi ...  Read more

Our son attended West in Pre-K but my husband and I quickly knew we'd have to make a move. We live very close to the school but the convenience was not enough to keep us there. West did help socialize our son but in many cases the experiences were negative. The foul language known and used by such young ...  Read more

Our experience at West has been great. As parents interested in a good learning and safe environment, we looked at the school prior to making a decision to move into the area.

I had concerns about sending my son to DCPS, but I really love West. It is a great "family" school. All of the teachers know my son (for good reasons!), as do many of the older students. (He is in Pre-K 4.) His Pre-K teachers are excellent. They truly have helped him mature over the year. I love that ...  Read more

Our son has been at West EC for the past two years and loves school. He has developed so much socially and academically and we will send his sister to West when she's old enough to attend. The principal Ms. Caruthers is outstanding, and the staff and teachers know our son by name and it is just a really ...  Read more

West is one of the true gems in the DCPS system. My daughter is currently in PK3. The curriculum has far exceeded my expectations. The teachers are allowed to express themselves creatively and this is reflected in my daughters project based assignments, field work, and field trips. I feel that ...  Read more
