My boys attended here and I was so impressed with the quality of education they received. The teachers and staff are wonderful. A strong foundation is key to education, and WPES is accomplishing this task.Mr. Parker the music teacher works really hard to introduce the arts to the students, with music, plays.. there is an outdoor classroom and the science lab is just awesome! I am very happy that my granddaughter is now attending West Point Elementary.
I have had 2 sons who have attended West Point Elementary School.The organization that they have to make sure the students are outstanding.Mrs. Coleman is a kind,respectable(even to the kids),loving and only wants the best for the children.Most of the time ,even though there alot of students that attend the school it is amazing how many children by their name right of the top of her head.You can tell that she loves the children and her job.The faculty at West Point Elementary are very knowledgeable and they know how to get inside those tiny little minds to make it easier and fun for them to learn!they are very kind,considerate and are very loving to the students!!!!

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
