    "We moved into the city, from Cobb, so our children could attend West Side Elementary. My Kindergartener LOVES her teacher and her school! She is thriving and so is her older brother in 3rd grade. West Side has EXCEEDED our expectations and we couldn't be happier! From what I see, SO MANY families agree!"

    "Not the school that it used to be! My son's K teacher was burned out on teaching and obviously didn't enjoy teaching. She made his first experience with elementary school miserable. She even admitted that she preferred teaching girls rather than boys. She failed to communicate with me consistently on my son's progress and failed to give my son the attention he needed to thrive. He ended up HATING school until I moved him to a better school. VERY DISAPPOINTED in Westside but happy now that my son is happy and thriving with a GREAT teacher at a great school that makes learning fun and gives the children the attention they need to thrive!"

    "If you fit into a certain "clique" (socioeconomic range/status) you'll love this school. If you are looking for a school that respects diversity and treats everyone fairly regardless of race/ethnicity/income...keep looking. Test scores aren't everything."

    "I see that Westside Elementary is rated 9 at Great Schools.com. Sounds like the teachers are doing a great job. I am hoping that the new staff will hold up to the amazingly high standards. I bought a house in this school district because of Westside. A good school is the representation of the community. Great to hear that the "helicopter moms" are participant ing in their childrens life. I know I will be as well! Good job Westside, keep up the great score!"

    "West Side Elem. was a wonderful school until it decided to violate IEPs & 504s. Without a lawyer or even with a lawyer, parents are encouraged to move their children, to another MCS elementary school, if their child requires any extra help. Too much stress is on the teachers & children over test scores. There are also many high-maintenance, helicopter-parents trying to run everything: from every single school function to extra-curriculum such as Drama or PTA events. We have to keep our heads down if we don't agree with the school or school board in fear of all of our children (K, 2, & 3rd) being rejected by their peers thanks to their parents. It is a public school!! not a private school. We all pay taxes, but people keep pushing it to feel & appear to be private: by telling parents to leave if they don't like what is going on."
