West Elementary School Reviews
West Elementary and the Gulfport School District are truly on the leading edge of reforming education in Mississippi. One of only three districts piloting the Excellence for All initiative, they are living up to their motto of creating problem solvers and lifelong learners. The faculty and staff at West care deeply for their students and go to great lengths to ensure their success. West is the best!
Gulfport is a great place to work and learn! As one of three original Excellence For All pilot districts, we have lead the way in Common Core implementation in the state. Out-of-state parents have lamented about the rigor of our curriculum noting that their children are being challenged to become conceptual learners and critical thinkers. This is also a testament that the district holds everyone to high expectations. As a parent, Gulfport School District (GSD) was and is an easy choice. Thanks to the teachers counselors, and administration, two of my sons earned about $60,000.00 in academic, leadership, and band scholarships. The third and youngest son has requested to stay because he loves the school, its robotics program, and band. What more could a parent expect? I recommend GSD as THE education destination on the Gulf Coast.

I love west elementary. My son was having problems in his old school. I held him back because of it and his grades. than we moved and he started going to west. his grades went up and the other problems stoped. My son passed and is ow in 2nd. grade. I just want to say thanks to the whole school and his 1st. grade teacher Mrs. Zanders.
