  • I was sold from the very first conversation witht he vice principal. He made me feel as if he really needed my child to attend his school. Ive done my research regarding the test scores and I am very impressed. This first impression is a great and lasting one. This will be my sons first year attending West and we look forwarding to good happenings this year and the following to come.
