  • My older child has been there for four years, and my second is just starting at Westgate. Things seem pretty smooth for my older child however, based on both conversations with classmates's parents and older students at the school, there are some teachers who are both racially biased and gender biased. My children are different genders so it will be interesting to see for myself. My niece/nephew is racially different and had a rough time with the teachers. The staff (with one or two exceptions) doesn't seem to have the same problems and are always quite helpful and a pleasure to work with.

  • My child has went to this school for 4 years and I love this school. The staff are awesome, friendly, and I would not send him to another school.
