Challenging curriculum with good teachers and leadership. It would be nice if it was a three year middle school instead of a two year junior high for greater continuity, but that isn't a reflection on the quality of the school. I haven't noticed any disciplinary problems at the school, and I have volunteered there before. Student behavior seemed mostly age appropriate and acceptable.
Westwood is absolutely top notch! From the staff to the students, this school is unmatched! The music department (orchestra, choir, band) is amazing! The only complaint I have is that its only a 2 year school lol! We have had a wonderful experience at Westwood and will miss it dearly! The BEST principal in the world Mr. Gray makes this school what it is, he relates to the kids, is constantly interacting with them in the hallways, smiling, joking, just taking a genuine interest in them....simply amazing.
WWJH is an environment that helps students to grow up and get ready for the challenges of preparing for college. It is academically strong, and the students are diverse. This is a good place for a student to begin learning who they are and who they want to be.
I go to Westwood and i think it is the BESTTT!!!!! WEST IS WORSTT!!! haahaa (: this a GREAT review of our school but i would give my school a 10/10 rating and 5 stars... but thats my opinion! haha i have tons of friends there and the teachers actually think somthing of their students!!!! so if your child is looking for a middle school in Dallas TX. it should be WESTWOOD!!!!
This school is unable to deal with developmentally challenged students and made media attention because of it! Instead, the policy of zero-toleerance overwhelms the concept of practicle realistic applications to challenged students.
A wonderful school full of teachers who care about the kids, not just teaching them. Every question I've ever had has been answered right away. All the teachers I've encountered are wiling to come in early, stay late, and give extra time throughout the day to help the kids. We're so glad to be at Westwood.
Excellent feedback from instructors. They have a policy of responding to parent queries within 24 hours. I have never had to wait that long for a reply. Good teacher/student ratio. Parent math sessions. Welcoming PTA. Excellent counselors willing to take the extra time to help with queries. My child has continued to excel in this school
