I think Westwood is a great school. I went to this school all 12years and my kids have gone their all 12 years. 2013 ,was a bad year, but 2014 has been great and will continue being great. From Teachers, Coaches, Administration, i will put our school up against any other school in our area.

This is not a school you want your kids going to. The spanish teacher can not speak English well enough to teach class. They can not keep an athlectic director over two years. If you have a problem the Supt and principle will not adress problem. Not to mention the clics and Drama from student body that is promoted by Teachers I was so glad I got my kid out of there.

This school is denying a student to walk for graduation THIS FRIDAY. This student has attended this school through most all of his educational life. He switched to another school to be closer to family in need to help in any way he could. Now that he is back, a few weeks before graduation he is denied to walk because of a guidline that states something along the lines of being in the school for 12 weeks before graduation in order to be allowed to walk. I understand that if it were a student coming here from another STATE or another district maybe. A student who has attended here his entire educational life though except for a couple months though? I think this "12 Week" thing is to vague and needs to be ammended with some more clarification and more detail! WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING THEM ABOUT MORALS, HARD WORK, DEDICATION, ACADEMIC FOCUS, COMMON SENSE, ACHIEVEMENT, AND RECOGNITION?

Westwood is the best school ever everyone knows everybody and almost all of the kids get along with each other and the teachers. The staff adminastration is also extremely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have all kinds of extra-curricular activities that could possibly interest you. All I can say is that Westwood may not be perfect but its way better that Palestine High School!!!!!!! and those who think other wise probaly have never seen or been to westwood and if they have and still don't like it than they have a serious problem and they need to stop hatin' on us cause 'no one on the cornner has swagger like us!!!!!!!!!!!!'

Westwood is a great middle size school. It is small enough that everyone knows most everyone, but large enough that the students still get the diversity that they need.

My children love the small town atmosphere in which Westwood offers. They would not want to go to any other schools in the area.

Westwood has a very good environment. You are able to learn and have fun all at the same time. I feel that it is not too crowded and everyone is your friend. The sports here a great, the coaches really enjoy what they do and they put alot of time and pride to their players. Our band is one of the best in this area, they go to competitions and win all the time.I enjoy westwood and I think it is a perfect school for any child.

Westwood is the best school district in Palestine, Texas with an excellent band program and academics which go beyond the minimum expectations of other districts. The Academic Decathalon Team at Westwood HS has placed first in the state of Texas for the last three years. Students continue each year to score above the state average on the TAKS test in almost every academic area. Violence is very minimal and administrators and teachers work hard to make Westwood a wonderful learning environment.
