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.
