    "As a Parent and former employee, I have seen Western Ave seriously decline in the 6 years we have been involved. As a very involved parent, the staff has been shaken up, the cirriculum downgraded for the supposed "technology" upgrade, and the parent involvement has declined. With the quickly changing cummunity support, I do not see this school rising back to where they once were as an exceptional school. The district needs to get a new principal in there to get things back on track and not one who worries so much about her personal rapport"

    "Western's teachers are top notch, and parental involvement is encouraged at this school. Western is a K-5 school, not K-6 as prior posts indicate. Because of the changing culture, fewer parents are involved in their children's education. This could have a long term negative effect on this school. Western was an outstanding school 10+ years ago. While Western is still considered a great school, it is likely to "downgrade" to a mere "good" school within the next 5-10 years because of the rapidly changing culture. The glory days of Western Avenue are long gone and will never revert to how things used to be."

    "Western Avenue School remains a top performer in educating K-6 students. Parental involvement remains high and steady. The parent who believes that "less" parents are involved may not see the involvement and therefore thinks there are fewer parents involved."

    "This school has hard working and dedicated teachers who permit and encourage parental involvement at all levels. In reviewing some of the other reviews I note that families have trouble (as most of us do with our kids), it is our job to rise above it and work with the school to get what our kids need. The school is SMART and they take all of my many calls and always address my childs needs on as an individual basis as any public school or private school for that matter might. It is a gem in Flossmoor and most all families treasure its experience and get involved!"
