    "I agree with the posts about the staff they could be more pleasant and helpful.I like the dresscode and I think all schools need a dress code. As far as the staff they need to build up the students more than they are and let the parents be involved more and work with the parentsinstead of blocking them out. Thanks, Concerned Parent"

    "Although my daughter is excelling academically, (possibly because she is not challenged..at all) I must say that WMS has the potential to be a great school but first, the administration needs to loosen the reigns (just a bit!), remember that the students are children first and breath some excitement and fresh air back into what is currently a stale and uninviting school. Discipline and regimen are a fantastic CORE standard to run (not rule) your school by however, it does not need define who you are, as a school to both the kids and the people on the outside. Yes, this was my first impression of this school and still is. Ms. Rolader, your school will demonstrate much higher academic achievement and participation (from both parents and students) if you can learn to lighten up enough to have a little fun and make your school a place that the kids WANT to go to everyday. If you can accomplish that feat, then you can consider yourself a true teacher, leader and role model. I will be watching and hope to see a positive transformation soon!"

    "We moved to neighboring Gwinnett County to give our son a good education. West Side was a nightmare! The staff and administration do not care about the well being of the children. The children are not challenged, there is barely any homework given. Parent involvement is not encouraged. The Principal is a horrible leader of this school. West Side needs to get rid of Ms. Rolader. She is very disrespectful in her dealings with both children and parents. I truly feel since this is a low income area, the administrators and teachers feel they can get away with giving students an inferior education and treating parents with disrespect. Moving out of this district was the best decision we ever made for our child. He is now being challenged and being encouraged by his teachers."

    "my daughter is a 7th grade student at Westside. She is doing better here than at any other school she has attended. The teachers all seem very enthusiastic and always keep me informed of what's going on in the classroom. I have seen several other parents complain that parents are not welcome in the school. I find the exact opposite is true! I think the parents who are complaining about that just don't want to let their child grow up and want to hover over them as if they are still in elementary school. like it or not, out children are growing into what we are supposed to wish for them...to become independent adults, not whiney self absorbed immature mama's boys and girls. The staff at Westside is A-1 in my opinion! They are always helpful and seem happy to talk to me."
