Abandon hope all ye who enter here. The only school that I refuse to work in as a sub. It's simply awful and there are absolutely not redeeming qualities. If you think I am being too harsh, I dare you to take an assignment at this school.

I have never subbed at a worse school. The students showed a defiance towards educators that I have never seen, even worse than the last chance alternative high school I been in. I had to turn up the drill sergeant teacher in me to get even a little compliance. Of course as with any school there where those student that were really trying to learn and preformed and they were poorly served. I was really frustrated and worried that I was a poor teacher, but several students told me it was always like this and all my other experiences have been so great. I also found the staff poor people were short and rude, it was the first time the secretaries the office weren t bright and shiny people. Very few smiles, truly a place .I wish them the best, and my heart breaks for the kids, but I doubt I pick a sub job there ever again.

I only went to westwood for a year but it was the most fun i have ever had at school. The kids there were great and my math teacher Mr. Tran was the most supportive teacher i know. I really miss it there and just wanted to say that i miss everyone there.
