Excellent school and staff, only problem is there is no bus service for Pimmit Hill residents, older kids can walk but for kindergartners is a challenge. Planned rennovation hopefully will make it spacious and provide more parking.

Westgate has great teachers and staff who really care about the kids. My son has transitioned very well to this school after his Montessori experience. We just wish they had more resources so they could really soar. Thank you Westgate!
