Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Lots of after school program on campus and in CDC. Students are hard working and well behaved. lots of extra curriculum activities but the core curriculum program of the school is not strong. Teacher relies a lot on parent volunteering.

Great school because of great students and involved parents, not the teachers and administration. Teachers I've met seem detached and only there for the paychecks, and also seem lazy because of great, motivated students. Hope the teachers see this review and take it as a challenge and maybe a wake-up call.

The Principal at this school puts his teachers first and the students second. I agree with the other parent about him being less and less caring. I would also add that he is unethical. Make sure you keep and document everything, because if you ever deal with him your dealing with a snake. I see the reason why they didn't want him at the district. The children at this school seem to be well behaved. The front office staff is great! The Teachers are good however there are a few that should retire.

This school is getting out of control and increasing the number of students is compromising the quality of education our kids are getting. The principal seems to be less and less caring and attentive to our students and their families.

This School is fantastic academically! Teachers are pretty good except for a few, and Parental involvement phenomenal! Principal seeks his own interest from PTA. PTA has a lot of money. Children are very well-behaved. I could drop my Child to School and felt safe. Only problem: The School majority is Asian and the Parents expect them to study as if they are in college. No real gym program/art program etc. But, your kids will have top test scores if you send them here.

In response to the last post... "Only problem: The School majority is Asian and the Parents expect them to study as if they are in college." That is a negative and stereotypical comment. When did Asians being a majority at a school become a problem? Please stop evaluating schools based on the ethnic background of students! The principal, teachers, parents, and students make Stonegate a great school! To my knowledge, (due to budget cuts) it is the PTA that funds the PE and Music program.

Size matters! Westwood thrives on it's being half the size of IUSD's targeted '(large) economy of scale.' It's best feature (small enough to be a community) will be gone when moving to the Stonegate compound next year. 4 different principals in 4 years hasn't effected this school as it's community was strong and teacher and parental leadership are good.

We chose WB+ for oldest when she started Kindergarten in 1998 and now my 4th child is in 1st grade. Warm, consistent, developmentally appropriate, academically challenging, creative, and, most importantly, a school that kids look forward to going to every day! Maybe that's why I haven't heard of the discipline/disruption problems that face other schools.

My daughter ended her kindergarten year with success and is looking forward to first grade. Both my husband and I are teachers and was amazed how much we love Westwood in every area. It is the best school, hands down.

For the 4 years that my children have attended Westwood Basics, I have found the experience to be outstanding academically and socially. The teachers and office staff are supportive, encouraging and personable. They provide the best possible learning and growing environment for the children. The PTA, parents and community are deeply committed to the enrichment of the children. I consider ourselves truly fortunate to have a public school of this caliber in our neighborhood. Westwood Basics is a school that all schools should emulate.

The school seems to be more organized and focused since Dr. Thompson arrived this summer.

My daughter started grade K here in 2003. The teachers here have been more that great. Mrs. Garner has made this such a wonderful experience for my daughter, as she loves school. I also love it here, and have also met many many great new friends (other moms). I encourage you to try this school if you have been looking for a great Irvine elementary.
