I agree with one of the parents complaints about the male gym teacher and coach. Also the attitudes of some other teachers are really bad. My child complained about condescending remarks made continuously by some of the teachers to the class about a student. They must keep in mind they are role models. My child had to stand up to the band teacher as he was talking ill about one of the students and had his facts wrong, again.

1 The school lacks in many ways. I've personally tried working with the principal ,assistant principles and teachers. I requested meetings and to no avail there was no change. My child was constantly assaulted , bullied and belittled. It gets to the point where I honestly considered legal action against the school and or district.

Unfortunately we are a retired military family and have had to attend several schools. This is the worst school my kids have ever attended. My son has been stabed and bashed in the head with a rock. What makes it even sadder is that the gym coach stood there and watched as both incidents occurred . I had a teacher in the office throw his things on a desk and aggressively approach me. The assistant vice principal will be sure to remind you that this is exclusively white privileged school. I can't wait till we are done with this school.

We are very pleased with this school because of the Principals and teachers, this 2016-2017 school year.The new vice principal is keeping students in the classroom where they belong with a less punitive mode, encouraging and has compassion for the students and parents.

Westover is school that really seeks to love kids and give a quality education. I have found that the majority of the staff and students represent the community well.
