I love Westpark because he teachers are very nice and they always know what to say when something is wrong. The nurse is a kind woman who, no matter what, helps us children out. The teachers I had were Mrs. Bentley ( not here anymore), Miss Howell ( still teaching second grade), Miss Lucas ( not here anymore), Mrs. Martinez ( has moved from 4th to 1st grade), and currently I am being taught by Miss Hardman in 5th grade. They are all very kind no matter what situation the school is going through. the school is a very safe place. The bathrooms and any other place throughout the school is in well and working condition thanks to Mr. Lonnie.This school has a wonderful music program. This school should be at the top of your list.
