This is the most horrible school. The school district is crooked and the superintendent is crooked. Corpal punishment is currently being tolerated at this school. The students ate hit if they get the wrong answer. They don't have any money in the budget for special ed so autistic kids are mixed in w the behavior class and are being beaten by Mr Johnson. Every time a kid misbehaved in another class they are sent to him for punishment. Stand up for your children and take them out of this school.

This is a fantastic school! The principal is caring yet firm with the students and does not tolerate nonsense. The teachers are wonderful! And the librarian is extremely knowledgable and helpful to both students and parents. Our children love Westlawn!

Westlawn's GT program is superior. My daugther scored on a 7th grade level in all her subjects.
