  • This is a wonderful school. My son is a second grader and has been going here since Kindegarten. He is very happy and his Father and I have absolutly no complaints. We are so thrilled with Westminster Elementry.

  • Westminster Elementary has several excellent teachers, but it also has a few substandard teachers who unduly criticize the children (for instance, calling a child's magic trick "lame," or refusing to let the children in primary grades use the bathroom). When I have encountered conflicts with a teacher, I have noticed that the administration is not very pro-active, so conflicts are difficult to resolve. Usually, the school's solution is simply to move the child to another class rather than address any problems in teaching style or with the general manner of the teacher.

    Fortunately, my family is moving out of the state. If we were staying in the area, I would look for a different elementary school for my child.
