This community of just under 8,500 residents, West Springs is a larger sized community with over 4 square kilometres with only a small part of the space having been developed for residential use.

The West Springs elementary school was recently opened in September, 2010 to give public school students the opportunity to remain within the limits of the community for their first years of education. After West Springs elementary, they are assigned to attend Glamorgan junior high and Henry Wise Wood senior high school. The Catholic school student that live in the community attend J.W. Costello elementary, St. Michael or St. Gregory junior high, and Bishop Carroll or St. Mary’s senior high school; the community’s area is so vast that dependent upon where a student lives, this decides to which school they are to attend.
West Spring residents value the privacy and secluded nature of the suburb that they call home. One may still enjoy the fruits of the downtown core while retaining the small community feel.
