Open Quote Westshore was 4th in the district for writing 2013-2014 school year. They are currently an A school. My son achieved a 5 in Math and Reading on his FCAT. He is bright but the hard work of his teacher shined in his test scores. He has been at Westshore for 2 full school years. His baby sister will enter Kindergarten this year. I couldn't be happier with my CHOICE to place my children at Westshore. I believe that Westshore is the gem of South Tampa. It has a huge free and reduced lunch population but still continues to have the highest expectations for academics and behaviors you will find. Linda Drawdy's leadership is certainly something that should be studied and duplicated by others in the district. Close Quote

Open Quote 3 out of 4 kindergarten teachers delivered babies w/i weeks of each other. They were replaced with teachers who had little or no teaching experience. This shows extremely poor planning by administrators! Close Quote

Open Quote Amazing school! It is close knit and has a family feel. Everyone knows you and your child from the teachers to the principle. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
