West Point Elementary is an outstanding school and is on its way to becoming and excelling school in the very near future. I can feel it! The curriculum provided at the school reaches students at ALL levels- not an easy task to accomplish. There are a variety of extra-curricular activities available for students ranging from sports to drama club all the way to tutoring and enrichment clubs. The facilities are always clean and kept in great condition. West Point also has the highest number of volunteer hours logged in the Dysart district due to its phenomenal parent involvement. I am pleased to be a part of the West Point community!
