School Reviews

  • Recommended September 12, 2012 - The teachers are really nice and very helpful with students.Most of the children have good manners. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 18, 2009 - West View has a chorus and most other schools in washington couty don't. I am sending my kids there. They have great academic features. At the end of the year they go on big trips. Last year the 7th and 8th grade went to charleston for a week. I knew my kids were in great hands. I love the teachers there. Especially Mrs.Hartman. She is an amazing teacher. I reccomend that all parents who read this should send there kids to West View from k-8. It's an amazing school. (: - Posted by Student/Alumni

Teachers in 19 States Allowed to Physically Punish Students

As a result, House democrats have taken up the issue in a new bill that would ban all forms of corporal punishment nationwide.
