I have heard West is a good school and it is right next door to the Hutch, like Penelope mentioned. I think that is a GREAT school!
The problem with that was that they've had years where their enrollment (in-district) has gone above estimates, and they've told these hapless students from other districts: so sorry, go back to your own school, we don't want you here. It was horrible!
So there's always that to consider...that just because there's room before the Oct count date, doesn't mean there will be room after. And by then, your child has had time to assimilate, make friends, join clubs, etc.
