Supports LD students: Agree


- a
If your child has big needs academically you'll probably want to be in public school or a school for kids with LDs but for a small private school they're very accommodating.



- a
My kids are getting a great education and being guided to appropriate colleges without the pressure cooker of Harvard Westlake.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
When I whispered the world "bully" it was like a three alarm fire. The staff assembled, supported and fixed the part of the problem that the school could fix. It was much better than I would have hoped for.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
All middle schools seem to be plagued with some children who can be nasty to others. Once the school is made aware, the issue is dealt with swiftly and effectively.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I am not sure how they handle learning differences with regards to disabilities but they do differentiate math into three levels within every grade.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The head of middle school, Marisa Felt, is a fantastic resource for parents and students. Mark McKee is wonderful - I was shocked when he knew everything (from the application) about our child and family when we met at a fairly large new family event. It was clear he was excited about each family and had invested time in getting to know everyone before the event.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
There are many assemblies and much talk about being a good person. Awards at graduation emphasize character, as well as accomplishment.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My child has learned a great deal in each class. My child has also come to love topics that they previously thought were really boring.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
MyViewpoint helps middle and upper school students managing homework. The 6th grade class is taught a skills for success class to help them learn how to manage their time and assignments.

We love Viewpoint! Our child started in 6th grade and was welcomed and inspired by the administration, students and teachers. The work load is very manageable and parents can monitor their student's assignments via MyViewpoint. The rotating schedule provides students with the opportunity to take a lot of classes within the school day. For example, a child can learn a musical instrument, play on a sports team, take an art class and learn a language, all within the same semester, without feeling overwhelmed. The campus is expansive and beautiful. The athletic facilities are amazing - 2 Olympic sized pools, two basketball pavilions, two full sized sports fields. All middle school students participate on teams and the teams are appropriate for every skill level. For example, we witnessed a "C" team win the league for their level and feel just as celebrated as the "A" team. My child had never played one particular sport but was smiling and enjoying every minute of every game with her skill appropriate peers. Art is also included in the curriculum and the art program is impressive. Students learn art history before creating beautiful works. The lower school art teacher is extremely passionate and the results demonstrate the students are absorbing his enthusiasm. My child created unbelievable things in 6th grade art that far exceeded the sophistication of projects created at art camps and specialized art classes. Parents are involved and very nice. I was surprised that every child had a parent at every sporting event. This is a wonderful school where teachers and administrators exude excitement and compassion. We love Viewpoint.
