John H. West is located in the Plainedge School District. We serve children from K through Grade 5. We are proud of the bond that has been established between parents and teachers. Our children eagerly join in all of the academic endeavors that we offer. We strive to create a climate that not only makes learning fun, but engages all students in qualitative instruction. It is important to us that children use higher order learning thinking skills as well as become successful problem solvers.
In addition, we offer a myriad of extra-curricular activities. Our Student Council is an active group. We offer: chorus, band, orchestra, Math Olympiads, after-school workshops, Parents as Reading Partners (PARP), a fun filled yearly celebration of Read Across America Day and Field Day to name a few.
At John H. West, we are committed to the academic, social and emotional achievement of all students. While maintaining high expectations, our faculty and staff create a supportive and nurturing environment that is conducive to learning. Our goal is to instill in our students a love of learning, while helping them to develop the self-esteem, problem-solving and critical thinking skills that will enable them to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
We value parents as partners in the educational process, and we welcome them as members of our school community. At John H. West, parents, teachers and staff work together to ensure that students get the best education possible.
