I was surprised to see how poor the West School MCAS results are. I am happy to hear that there will be a new principal next year.

Being a townie for most of my life, I attended the West School, have had nephews attend and now I'm proud to say that my children will also be attending. I have also worked at the West and knowing first hand that my child will get the best from a great school with great teachers!
