    "I have 2 kids at west lab and they love it. The teachers are great, the school is small and welcoming to parents. The after school programs are fantastic. They have sports, code, lego, chess, drama, dance etc. I feel very lucky to be able to send my kids here."

    "My happy child has been there for 2 years now, great fit. The teachers challenge the kids and expose them to the world. I read these comments and sit here is dismay wondering who and what is being spoken of here. The education being taught here is second to none. If you do your work, and rise to the challenge of putting in the time with the homework, it all works out. The After School Classes like Basketball, Soccer, Violin, Tennis, Programing code, Dance, are great for the kids to be exposed to. Life is a competitive environment, here at West Lab, you learn to perform! Don't base your research on these online opinions, interview a parent who's child is always on the Honor Role. (Many to choose from.) Good Luck"

    "I would give it a 0 rating if I could. One of the worse experiences of my child's life and mine. My child was bullied and targeted by a teacher and when I complained all hell broke loose. The harassment worsened and and now it included me as well. The principal? Absolutely useless. Run for the hills!"

    "Far away from being an "A" school. There is more to be an "A" school than only having students writing "A" grades. Of course, there are a few good teachers working at West Lab Elementary but even these teachers overwhelm their students with huge quantities of homework every day not realizing that some students are bored all year long. "Students who can't follow are left behind without support or additional help." Students who follow with ease don't get progress related worksheets. The absolutely worst experience I've ever made was the encounter with the school management and office administration, a group of disorganized and unfriendly people not able to deal with criticism constructively. Instead of a friendly welcome they make you feel like an intruder entering "their" territory. They prefer chewing gums, eating and talking to each other and don't mind you standing and waiting at the office desk. Is this an appropriate behavior you may expect from an "A" school? At the end of this unbelievable but true experience I feel sorry for those children who can't move to another school. We took our child out of West Lab Elementary and are looking forward to a great new school year."

    "Principal runs this school worse than a third world country factory. Not only is she the rudest person I've personally ever met, she cannot manage to save her life. The only reason why I have my child still attending this school is because it is in a very convenient location. I wish someone from the district would pop-up and make a surprise visit so they can see how horrible this once great school is being ran. It makes me sad because this school used to be such a "wow your child goes to West Lab" kind of school. Now I believe I'm not the only parent counting the days down until we can get out of there and never have to deal with such utter rudeness, bulling and lack of structure from the principal and her gang. If I could give half a star I would."
