    "I find it interesting that the person reviewing West University Elementary School could say in such an anecdotal manner with no evidence to back such negative statements. The TAKS, Standford scores, and the number of placement into high ranking middle schools are quantitative evidence of the academic excellence of the school. The PTO is active. Almost 82% of all money earned goes back to the students in way of teaching material, curriculum enrichment, or materials for the classroom. The constant preparation by teachers to help students after hours to help tutor kids (NON-PAYING Tutorials) are evident all through the year. Again this quantitative evidence of that the cooperative effort of teachers, administration and parents are doing things right at West University Elementary School."

    "My son has been in West U for K & 1st grade and we have had a great experience at the school. We are glad that we have access to such good education through the public school system. Yes - it is not perfect but it is a good school academically and socially for my child."

    "Excellent school, great teachers and strong PTO. My son excelled at West U in less than a year. He is almost finished with kindergarten. He started at reading level 6 and now is reading chapter books. His math is 1st grade level and tested well in all subjects in Stanford. His teacher is very responsive and caring. West U is named the 5th best schools (2nd in HISD after TH Rogers) by 2011 Houston Chronicle Best schools in the Houston and vicinity areas. Most grades tested at 99% in almost all subjects. This is one of the best public elementary schools by far. This is the largest elementary in the HISD and there is still a long waiting list every year."

    "This school is ALL HYPE. Education is poor; PTO is overzealous; The monthly fundraisers are ridiculous; the teachers are superficial and lack passion for teaching. All of the children (including mine... now) are tutored by one of the West U. teachers at the library across the street each day after school. It is incredible to think such an "outstanding school" requires such intense after-school preparation. Paperwork and email OVERLOAD. I am flooded day after day with either emails from the class mom's re: a fundraiser or paperwork in my child's folder re: anything other than her education. My child literally comes home with a folder FULL of paper each week; which, has nothing to do with her education. A huge portion of fundraising must go towards thousands and thousands of pieces of colored paper AND COPY MACHINES. Oh my... Frankly, the teachers are all very young and pretentious and there is a very high turn-over rate. Not to mention, the front office staff is incredibly rude. The school is beautiful but your child's education is not a priority."

    "I am not sure how anyone got the impression that there is no homework in K. My child has had plenty of homework in K. He has also had to complete projects and prepare for oral book reports to the class complete with tri-board. I've been very happy with the teachers. I have two children. The other child is in 2nd grade. The PTO is very active and the facilities are great."
