School Official Point of View

This is great school, Westlake cares about their students. The teaching staff is highly qualified, most with Master's degrees. Students are given a great learning environment with brand new E-textbooks, computer lab, library, Science lab with brand new equipment, basketball court, new playground, and fields. Great place to learn, we love Westlake, the Administrators, and teachers.

No it does not. How can you develop fairness and integrity when administration is anything but that.

I was lied to by administration. They told me that they had a set curriculum for my child but that was not true. They were supposed to use e-books but the internet never worked. my child is now 3 years behind. I know this because I got him tested.

Mr. & Mrs Pepitone, Thank you for your hard work, dedication, time and energy that you put into Westlake to make it a successful school not only for the students but also for your employees. I'm proud to be a "Bulldog" and to call Westlake my second Home.

Westlake offers free tutoring after school for those students who need or want the extra help in the subject area. The Administrative staff and teachers have an open door policy. They are always ready to help when needed! The students are amazing how they help each other and motivate each other to work harder each day.

At Westlake, good student-teacher relationships come from mutual respect and trust. The teachers at Westlake are top notch. They push our children academically but are also quick to pick up on signs of a child struggling with a certain topic or assignment. Westlake promotes and foster a safe, positive, inclusive learning community where students are known well and their social, emotional, and intellectual needs are of primary concern.
