I rented a house, and got a job, and moved from halfway across the country so that my daughter could go to West Springfield Elementary School.

This is a public school that has a private school feel. It's smaller than other area elementary schools. There is very strong parent involvement and community support. Great teachers (although more new teachers than a couple years ago).

We are a military family and thankful to have stumbled upon this gem. The staff is outstanding. There is strong leadership from the administration and high expectations. These are the attributes we look for in a school.

While my children have enjoyed the school, we feel there is too much emphasis on test scores and not enough out-of-box thinking. The lead admistration (Jones), while competent, was condescending and unapproachable, leaving little room for maneuver by some outstanding classroom educators. We've noticed ...  Read more
