    "This will be our third year at Westar and we are excited to see the STEM program being embraced by teachers and staff...it is truly an exciting time to be a Comet and I am proud to tell people the school my children attend! My own children have not experienced the bullying that is being discussed and I have a hard time believing that any valid complaints are not dealt with fairly and quickly by the school. Communication can be tricky at times, but the information is always available via internet, classroom updates and by an amazing PTO organization...it is there if you are looking. I find they leave some communication for 6-8 in the hands of the student and at a middle school level that makes sense. One star remains because all schools have room for improvement, but if I could half fill it in I would :)"

    "I am somewhate relieved although saddened to see another poster bringing up the bullying issue. We have been dealing with my child being bullied all year. The principal and teachers won't admit there is a problem. On top of this, some of the things my kids tell me their teachers are telling them is concerning at best. These teachers need to do more research before "teaching" children ridiculous "facts" they are reading on the internet. The nurse has also given my child inaccurate advice. I would NEVER recommend this school. It's a shame because it could be a great school. A couple "bad apples" have ruined it."

    "I find this very hard to believe Westar has a 3 point star since they have a major issue with bullying in the school. My grandson has attended this school for 3 months now and has been costantly bullied. It has gotten so bad that my daughter is thinking about finding a charter school for him. I have heard from other parents on this same issue and have done like wise. I also e-mailed the school in this issue and have had no response. I take this very serious especially when he wen from beng an A-B student to a D-F student. I am sure the teachers are doing the best they can."

    "Westar School continues to rise in quality of leadership, teaching staff and academic requirements. It has a great parent volunteer base and a welcoming environment. Great improvements made in the last years shift toward excellence..."

    "Do you remember the promise made by Dr. Rogers, the Superintendent, that classrooms would have small class sizes? Well, since the beginning of this year, have you asked your kids how many kids are in the classroom? Some teachers have in the thirties!!! AIMS scores and learning will be affected with class sizes this big."
