4 Things About West Springfield Elementary

If your child is selected for the AAP program they’ll be pulled out with other students throughout the week for those subjects.

In addition to classroom instruction, students welcome opportunities to participate in activities such as the band, chorus, strings, safety patrols, peer mediators, and the student council association.
