This affluent Cleveland bedroom community — presently celebrating its bicentennial anniversary with great fanfare — bespeaks the town's close-knit and family-friendly feel. Bicentennial aside, every year is filled with festivity, including the annual Pumpkin Festival, Christmas Tree Lighting, July 4th Parade and Liberty Fest, Summer Concerts in the Park, and "Westlake in Bloom" flower garden competition. Plus, it's got four golf courses and a vibrant community theater. Youthful brainpower is also present in the town's satellite campus of Cleveland State University.
Westlake’s school district website reports that it is consistently in the top four percent state-wide, earning an “Excellent” rating on the Ohio State Report Card. Lee Burneson Middle School has an intimate 17:1 student-teacher ratio; a conference champion girls basketball team; and a Civil War Ball with authentic food, music, dances, and costumes. Westlake High School's music programs are top-ranked, most notably the symphonic wind ensemble that's captured state champions for seven consecutive years. Multiple clubs are offered, from the "League of Fine Dining" to S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions). Seeking a private school? There are two highly regarded religious institutes (Westside Christian Academy and St. Paul Lutheran School), one outstanding Montessori (Montessori Children's School), and the Westlake Christian Academy.
