This school is beyond amazing. It has been featured on the news over 20 times in less than a year for ALL it does for children and the community. I am beyond blessed my child has the opportunity to attend the Westwood Ranch. I took my child out of a magnet school to enroll them. Everyday I am blessed to be a Westwood parent. Thanks to ALL the hard working deputies.

Westwood Elementary is leading Caddo Parish Schools in a much needed change for the better! The ENTIRE staff work extremely hard to meet the needs of their students. They love and care for each and every one of them. I am proud to have my child as a student at the Westwood Ranch!

I have really enjoyed watching Westwood take the big transformation that it took last year. When I used to drive by Westwood it did not look like a place where I wanted my children to to be. After the new administration team entered Westwood last year, the school has taken a major turn around. The school now looks inviting and like a school. The students hold there heads up with pride and more self esteem. They are always reading and wanting to learn. When you enter the classroom the teachers are on task and making learning fun and engaging. I am very pleased to see the new Westwood and I am excited to see what this school year brings. I have been on campus this summer and I love how the classrooms are undergoing transformation. If you get a change come Out and see the new Westwood and show your support!!!

Can you say BACK IN THE SADDL,!!!! Westwood is growing, turning, & nurturing. I love how my child has blossomed. She has jumped academically beyond I could have ever seen. She's loves the new staff. I love how I'm greeted each morning, rain, sleet, shine, or snow. Mrs. Ellis has revamped the campus. By the colors, books, . & office. If you walk into the school you can feel the LOVE for CHILDREN! WESTWOOD IS THE BEST SCHOOL FOR US.

Watch out!! This school is turning around. I must be honest and say I live in the neighborhood of this school but I would not let my children attend. I didn't know the school, none of my neighbors ever had anything positive to say about the school and it looked very old and boring. I knew it wasn't the place for my kids if they were going to be placed on the road to success. However, this year, a drastic change has taken place. I have never seen such a change come to a school in such a short period of time. This school is surely on its way to claiming the title of an official turn-around school. This is only possible because the staff works together as a team. I have been to other elementary schools being that my older children attended them in the past and never have I seen such a school with such high energy, creativity, enthusiasm, and motivation. How do I know this? Once my neighbors started telling me all the wonderful things that were going on at Westwood, I took my child out of his school and enrolled him in Westwood. It's a decision I am very glad I made because I now know that my child is receiving a high quality education that will help him in life.

My school is a great example of a turn around school. I have worked at Westwood for more than ten years and I have noticed a dramatic change in the climate of the school. Parents are more involved. Teachers stay at school and even come on weekends. There's more job embedded professional development being offered. The expectations of both teachers and students are higher. The goals for our school is clear. The spirit of teamwork is valued. Our principal is appreciative of when we "do more." I loved my school before, but now I'm also proud of my school. Teacher

Westwood Elementary School had made a 100% transformation in just one year under the new direction of the school principal and the staff. They are the most caring individuals that I have met in the school system today and they each truly care about the success of each student. The best thing is you can actually feel the motivation and the spirit as you walk onto campus. As a community member, this is very exciting to see and gives me great hope for the children who attend this school!

This school has worked hard to bring up test scores and make children feel successful. My child has been there for 3 years now and it just keeps getting better. I look forward to her finishing her elementary school years at Westwood.

This school is not academically challenging at all. There is no structure in the class room. I would not recommend this school to any parent.
