West Ward Elementary School, built in 1948, has gone through several renovations over the years. There have been four additions to the original building, the last in the 1994 fall semester.

The original building was well maintained and updated as needed, a school official said.

The school has 80 computers and every classroom has at least one, a school official said. West Ward Elementary School has one curriculum-based computer lab and one special education reading lab. Most computers are connected to the Internet.

Playground facilities include a large playground divided between kindergarten and first graders, and second and third graders. Each playground has age-appropriate equipment, a school spokesperson said. The parent teacher association assisted with the development of the school playgrounds and helps maintain the playground equipment.

The parent teacher association at West Ward is "very active," according to a school official, with about 200 parents regularly attending meetings and organizing school-related events.

Among its unique features, West Ward hosts a Drop Everything and Read program every year. Other events include, a Grandparents Lunch, a Parents Lunch, as well as Donuts for Dad and Muffins for Mom meetings. The school also hosts four parent teacher association meetings, which involve students setting goals for parents.

The school also provides computer classes for parents, and maintains a library.
