John H. West Elementary School

John H. West is located in the Plainedge School District. We serve children from Pre-K through Grade 5.

We are proud of the bond that has been established between parents and teachers. Our children have eagerly joined in all of the academic endeavors that we offer here at West. We strive to create a climate that not only makes learning fun but engages all pupils in qualitative instruction. It is important to us that children use higher order learning thinking skills as well as becoming successful problem solvers.

In addition to the academic side, 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 (Dr. Seuss's Birthday) and Field Day to name a few.

Character counts at West and we are pleased to be implementing Second Step, an anti-bullying and character education program.
