If I can have my other children attend WHS at the time they need to attend a high school, I will picked Westmoor for them too again.

As a student here at Westmoor High School I don't like it much. Because the counslers don't do anything they just make things worse. I am a current senior here. I also don't like how some teachers can be judgemental and racist towards students sometimes. Which isn't right.

My son is a star basketball player in the 8th grade and plan to move in that area so he can play basketball there. School seems cool but checked out their Boys JV Basketball team against Washington the other day, and they looked terrible and coach looked clueless on how to break a full court press. Son said he doesn't want to play there, Doubt I want my son to play there either. Hear academics is good tho. Have to debate with the wife. Will let my son talk my wife out of it so I am off the hook. The game was really that bad.

Teachers are good overall and most of the students are good. The only thing I don't like about Westmoor is that too many people are accepted. I can hardly walk through the hallways during passing period without getting squashed between some people.

What's not to like? Great students, superb staff, outstanding administration! Oh yeah, Westmoor is a California Distinguished School; only 4% of the state's schools are awarded this accolade!

As a former teacher, I have to say that this school is one of the best schools in the Bay Area. The teaching staff and administrative staff have created the perfect environment in which students can effectively learn not only subjects, but life skills. Other schools should take note of WHS' effectiveness as a distinguished school.

My two sons both went to Westmoor High (06 and 07 grads). Both are doing great in college right now (A's and high B's). Tells you something about the school I'm sure.

As a current senior at Westmoor, I take great pride to be part of this school. I am a Service Commissionar aka 'Green Hat' at Westmoor, therefore i have great insights of the staff and students that attend Westmoor. Personally, I can say that there is only a minimal amount of students at Westmoor that are soiling our 'California Distinguished School' title...and Westmoor's teachers are to be best! Several teachers that i have had, withold doctorial degrees and can legitametly be called Dr. _____. Every teacher has recently taken a paycut for our 09-10 school year, and earn incomes wherein they could recieve much more at other schools. However, I believe our teachers stay because of our respectful students and the school atmosphere. Lastly, Westmoor's future continues to get brighter with the numerous renovations that will include a new cafeteria, swimming pool, track&field, and library that are soon to be completed.

You may hear that Westmoor is great and have a lot to offer. But most of Westmoors teacher staff is lazy and really dont know how to teach. My daughter complains how most of her teachers waste time in class and have no skill in teaching at all. The teachers arent helpful at all and the counselors arent that great. They are largely in debt and they are selfish for money. Although its being remodeled, I hope their education and sports remodel also. You can find a better high school for your child.

I find this school to be great overall. Good athletics and teachers. It really depends on some teachers though a rare bunch are not that great.

While I found I excelled at Westmoor, after coming to a prestigious university, I felt a little unprepared for the workload. However, I commend the teachers there greatly, especially those in the math and science departments. Our band program is wonderful, as are the sports teams and clubs.

Westmoor has a group known as the Westmoor Service Commission, and are led by Mr. Delbon by being the 'rock of Westmoor'. They are student groups who help maintain safety on campus, and these students are often the creme of the crop of Westmoor. Many students at Westmoor have the opportunity to succeed with programs such as AVID, as well as the AP and honors program. Despite this school not being a sport powerhouse, Westmoor has made numerous appearances in sectional meets in swimming, state meets in track, and state championships in girls basketball. Daly City today as a whole is a safer community, take a tour for yourself, Westmoor has no room for fights, students are expelled or moved away.

Like most schools, Westmoor has some good and some bad teachers.It you're unlucky and get one of the bad ones, especially in a basic class like reading, you can get turned off learning. If you get a good teacher, you can get well prepared here to go on to university--if you work hard. If you get a bad teacher, complain in writing to the Superintendant of the Jefferson High School District. Telling only the counsellors may get your class changed, but it doesn't get rid of the bad teachers.

The academic programs are weak. I don't know why they bring back teachers who retired years ago. I'm thinking of one in particular who was nasty when I went there and is still yelling at students. Can you imagine what it feels like to be taught to read by a sarcastic teacher who yells at you.? My cousin is supposed to go here in the fall. I'm warning my aunt to check out who she gets as teachers. It's too bad the principal won't get rid of teachers who are past it.

First of all, I believe that a student's honest opinion on a school who also understands what they're saying maybe the most important review on its quality and performance. I currently go to Westmoor High School and although I'm only a freshman and may not have an exact idea of how well Westmoor functions, I can provide my opinion on how well the school does its job. There are some teachers you know you'll remember for their outstanding teaching and there are some teachers that aren't distinguished as anyone would hope. There a couple teachers whose role is to only get you to graduate. But, overall this school isn't a dead end or a pathway guranteed to guide you toward a bright future. It's just a great school aimed at giving determined students the necessary education that they want and should recieve.

My siblings and I attended Westmoor from 1996 to 2006. All of us have either graduated, or are currently attending UC Berkeley. I have many friends that have attended Westmoor within the past 7 years who attend(ed) elite schools UCLA, Stanford, West Point and Yale, just to name a few. Westmoor s academics have improved tremendously since I was there their AP courses are incredible and the teachers are inimitable. Although the campus may be cloaked within what many may perceive as an underachieving Jefferson High School District, Westmoor, itself, is definitely a gem. It allows those that apply themselves and believe in it to reap the benefits and thrive thereafter. From doctors to attorneys, Westmoor is the foundation that has helped many of us to strive in our careers. I hope that soon, many of us will start to give back and perpetuate Westmoor s new found Lowell-like stature

My son loves Westmore and is very involved in their music programs. The principal, Mr. Morosi has availed himself to me by giving me his phone number and whenever I have an issue, I can call him to discuss it. The classes seem appropriately difficult and geared towards the student going to college. When the Western region accreditation committee came to check the school, they said that out of the last 70 schools they had been to, we had the highest parent turn out and that they all would be happy to send any of their kids to Westmoor. My only wish is that there were a football team but my kid is so busy with track, music, and leadership, as well as his classes, I don't think he could fit it into his schedule anyway!

I have a daughter that is a junior at Westmoor. I find that the academics here are much more competitive versus other High schools in the other neighborhood districts. I believe that education is the primary and having outstanding teachers educate these teenagers these days are very, very important for their development and their next stage in life. I will continue to share my opinions and concerns in the near future. But I close with by thanking GreatSchools.org for giving me the opportunity to share my opinions with all of you. Mr. H. Wong

I graduated there last year and Westmoor has taught me a lot. My sister went there in like 89, and she says that Westmoor is so much better than then. The principal is great, he really cares about us the students. The teachers are really great too! I transferred to Westmoor from Terra Nova. Terra Nova cares, but Westmoor is just so much more welcoming. Terra Nova was like the same in curriculum, but as in you know support from teachers and students, so much more different. Some people think Westmoor is bad, most students thought that they could just hang around and all that, but its not at all, its tough! I am proud of being an alumni of Westmoor. I now plan to be a lawyer. I never really wanted to, but the law class inspired me.

This really is a great school! I would definetely recommend them! They really care about the students, and my child went from a C student to an A average. He didn't want to go to College, but he changed his mind, because he said he realized that Westmoor showed him how important education is! Great!
