West Sylvan Middle School Reviews
I mean most middle schools aren't the best, but I really disliked this one. I went to Chapman Elementary school, where most people were very nice and compassionate, and it was very shocking going to West Sylvan after that. The kids and parents are very entitled, insensitive, and immature for their ages and it was not a good experience.
Trash! Very racist kids that don't have any idea what they are doing at school. Not diverse and not safe. Do not even think about bringing your child here.
The school is terrible and the teachers push political views on all the students. The food is trash and the feeling of the school is very very musty. The only happiness from my day is talking to mr keller
