West Tatnuck School has a terrific school environment where the principal and the teachers continually challenge the students at all grade levels and are able to get them to achieve at high levels. I have 3 children at the school and they can't wait to get to school in the morning.

West Tatnuck demonstrates excellence in many areas across the curriculum and the teachers constantly challenge the students to think deeply about the topic they are learning. All four of my children have attended West Tatnuck and were thoroughly prepared for middle school.
