A Welcome Message from Principal Michelle Lewis

Welcome to West Elementary School

Welcome to West Elementary School. West Elementary currently serves students Pre-K through the fifth grade. Our teachers, administrators, and staff are committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students. Our students are at the heart of everything we do here at West Elementary. We believe that EVERY child deserves the very best education possible. West Elementary was constructed in 1964-65. It was built on the 12 acre site of the old McMinnville Country Club golf course. Because of its central location within the city, West Elementary has been involved with city and community activities. Parents and citizens of our community are always welcome at West Elementary. If you have any questions or would like to tour the school, please give us a call at 931-473-3801. We thank our current parents for entrusting their children to our care and we look forward to welcoming new families to our school community in the near future! Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.


Tip Line - Warren County Schools, TN

In an effort to increase safety, the Warren County School District in conjunction with Warren County Sherriff’s Department has developed an anonymous TEXT-A-TIP line: 931-952-6770. We want to encourage anyone who has information regarding someone selling drugs, threatening to hurt others, having or planning to bring weapons on campus, as well as any illegal activity or public safety concerns in the schools, to text that information to the TEXT-A-TIP line. Any information regarding any school may be sent via text and will go directly to a school resource officer. IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION THAT IS AN EMERGENCY, THEY SHOULD CALL 911. We feel this will be another avenue to help provide important information to authorities and help us all to stay safe.
