Welcome to West!
Our goal for EVERY West student is to position them for success! Our motto is, Go 2 West→Go 2 College! We aim to help our students become strong, critical thinkers and to deliver high quality instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics. We also seek to enrich the learning environment by ensuring that our students have access to content learning in the areas of social studies and science. In addition to this, we work to develop the “whole child” through our character education program. Our outcomes for student behavior are clear: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. We work to ensure our students understand that they are priceless treasures to their families and their school community and that they are to treat one another with honor.
Our success lies in the partnership we have honed with our families. Each family is important. Education is important. Children who come from families that are engaged and active in their child’s school have the greater likelihood of reaching academic success. When students see their parents taking a daily interest in their learning activities (listening to them read, asking questions about their time at school) and participating in school activities, they learn from their adults that school is important. We value our kids and we certainly value the families that care for them. Parents are ALWAYS welcome to come to school and visit classrooms and volunteer.
Again, Go 2 West→Go 2 College!
