  • This is a great school with wonderful teachers. Everyone works very hard, and most of the kids enjoy learning at West. I would have given it 5 apples. However there is one thing that bothers me about this school. That one thing is the lack of discipline. I have noticed as a substitute that nothing is done when a child misbehaves. I have watched students disrespect their teachers, but the principal will not do anything about it. Some students ask for office referals to get out of class, and after recess is taken away, students know nothing else will happen. Therefore, they act up the rest of the day. The principle needs to realize that TCAP scores will not go up until the discipline issue is under control. Teachers cannot teach when they are dealing with discipline all day long. TCAP scores are directly related to student behaviors. If you look at other schools, you will find this to be true.
