Western's teachers are top notch, and parental involvement is encouraged at this school. Western is a K-5 school, not K-6 as prior posts indicate.

I have great concerns about this school's administrative support. Although they preach they want parent involvement, they tend feel they have total control over my child's discipline and turn a blind eye on teacher/support accountability. The teachers are wonderful, but seem to take the roll of a bullied ...  Read more
