I love Westwood Charter because when my daughter's kindergarten class' fish died, the principal and vice-principal took time from their busy day to listen to and reflect with the students, and help them develop a unique plan to process this important event. This kind of support trickles down through every facet of the school. Teachers are invested and passionate. A family spirit is tangible on the campus and evident as students help one another in the classroom and on the playground.
committed teachers, involved parents. A wonderful learning nvironment.
Westwood is truly a family. The students are recognized for what makes each of them individually unique-- as well as encouraged to be part of something bigger than themselves, his teachers for grades 1, 2 and 3 have been amazing-- and he is truly thriving. The parent participation and the school's transparency are both outstanding. I feel very lucky to be in this school's district.
We have an incredible school with unbelievable teachers. Please vote to further enrich our school and pay for areas which have been cut due to budgets.
I have to credit Harriet Orcan, my kindergarden to 3rd grade Teacher because she was really there for me inside and outside of school. I was very happy. The curriculum was very stong, and I thank God for Harriet, Gisell and Yvonne. God Bless You all! Mr. Harold Lenn Levingston Saturday, July 10, 2010
I think the school is filled with great teachers and children and thet deserve the chance to better thier school. So much is happening with budget cuts. Many schools are also in need.
Westwood Charter has a great community of active parents and students who give back to the school as much as they get. The efforts of the teachers and administration do not go unrecognized at Westwood. Westwood shows that great public education still exists in this country when everyone in the community participates.
Our son is in kindergarten at Westwood Elementary and is thriving there. He is quite active and we did not know what to expect when he began school, but the learning is structured to be as engaging as it is demanding. His teacher is wonderful and goes beyond the what is required of her. She even visited each of her students before the school year started so that they would have some familiarity when they began kindergarten.
A great community to be a part of -- Westwood Charter Elementary has amazing teacher and parents that really hard to make our school the best it can possibly be.
I love Westwood because the teachers are kind and helpful and the kids are friendly. The students are encouraged to be academic but also to use their imaginations and be creative.

My son is in first grade at Westwood and we have had the most amazing experience.
Westwood Charter has a lot of parent involvement. The teachers are motivated and seem happy.
Our son has been at Westwood for 2 years and so far, our family loves it. The environment is warm, friendly and inviting. The teachers are very passionate about what they do.
I've got three kids at Westwood, and all of us love it! The teachers, staff, and the families of this school are fantastic!
This is a great school with wonderful teachers with great support from the families of the students.
The level of engagement by faculty, staff and families is terrific, which makes for a strong spirit of community. The best measure, however, is that our grandkids love the school and love the environment that it offers for learning.
