A vast majority of our student’s needs are successfully met at the student’s neighborhood school.

While these programs are not located at every school, West Clermont strives to keep children as close to home as possible.
Provides a MTSS process when students are struggling at school. The goal of the MTSS is to identify an action plan that will improve the student’s academic, behavioral, or social skills. Based on data collected in the classroom, teachers may provide automatic interventions and document these on a Tier 2 intervention form. If a more intensive, individualized plan is needed, the teacher will schedule a Tier 3 meeting with parents and other support personnel, as needed. A collaborative plan will be developed at the meeting with parent input. Parental involvement is a very important part of this process

SUMMERSIDE ELEMENTARY HISTORY
In 1955, Summerside Elementary School was constructed on Vermona Street. It was the first West Clermont Elementary school building. An addition to the school was put on in 1956, 1960 and 1964. In 1985, Summerside Kindergarten students were bused temporarily to Clough Pike Elementary School due to room shortage at Summerside. Our building is situated on five acres of land which provides an opportunity for our students to interact more fully with the environment. .
