We have been at Westlake Academy from the very beginning and have never second guessed our initial decision to enroll our children in the IB program. We have watched them gain confidence and knowledge that is not offered by any other private or public school in our area. While the school has undergone expected growth and changes it has never failed to give our children everything that has been promised. I have no doubt that they have become lifelong learners, with a respect and understanding of diversity that many of us may never grasp. Thank you to the original school Founders, the ongoing support of positive parents, the students of Westlake Academy, who along with phenomenal teachers make this school so very special and a true honor to be a part of.

Where did they get this Head of School? He is the most disrespectful and rude person in the world! He treats teachers, parents and sometimes students as if they were making him a favor by paying attention to them. An open and safe communication style is necessary. It is a such a great school that it is a shame that he is creating such a stressful environment.

After extensive research, we've gladly committed our children's education to the IB concept at Westlake Academy. If an Exemplary rating on the TEKS is mediocre, not to mention PSAT scores well above national averages, & letters arriving daily from highly reputed universities, we'll stay right where we are. WA continues to grow, improve & inspire! The IB concept is not only wonderful, it works & is respected the world over. Although some haven't found WA to be the best fit, many Westlake families remain in this school of 420+ students (K-11 currently) situated in this little town of only 700 residents. And, the numbers are growing. Westlake citizens should be PROUD of the fact that their leaders had the foresight to start this IB school... school & city leaders from all over the state & nation have visited the campus in hopes of duplicating these efforts. It's a terrific education!

Engage in extensive research before you commit your child s future to Westlake Academy. Absence of leadership, no curriculum, ill-prepared teachers, no text books, and lack of funding contribute to the school s mediocre performance. The IB is wonderful in concept; however, it is unrecognizable at WA. Sadly, the most outstanding feature of the academy is the pastoral setting. The school was built primarily for the residents of Westlake, but only a handful of families remain. The majority have moved on to superior public & private schools in the area. Even school board members have removed their children from this school. That fact alone should make you think twice before enrolling. Students who left Westlake have had to do extensive remedial work to catch up with their peers. If only I had known, I would have never risked my child s education on the unproven program offered at Westlake Academy. You've been warned.

I do not like it here. My old school was better. Everyone is very rich at this school except me. Fine.

We have 2 children at Westlake and have been very happy. They learn reading, writing, math, science, language, arts, and music and still have tons of fun. They hardly emphasizes on the standard test, yet my son got a perfect score on reading this year. My kindergartener reads abd write her own books. Excellent school and continue to get better!

Westlake academy is truly excellent because of its supportive, dedicated community: students, parents, and teachers alike. The parents offer fantastic support, the teachers work hard to ensure a top-quality education, and the children push themselves to achieve. I am continually awed by how poised and articulate our students are.

I have gone to this school since it started and its changed me for the better. This school gives its students a real-life experience. It is like working in a small business. In this school you are encourage to work together, other than individually like in public schools. You do learn how to work as an individual but also with other people. This school is amazing and if there was anyway that my children could go to a school like this when I have children would be great and I would do whatever I could to get them in that school.

I have gone to this school since it has started, and it has been a changing experience. I started here in fourth grade, and I am currently in eighth grade. At my old school, we move at a slower pace, which was fine since everyone got the attention they needed, but this school is a great experience. The teachers here are wonderful, and they give you help if you need it and they expect and assign to you what they know you have the potential to do. The classes taught are great, and the extra-curricular activities are fun to take part in. I myself am on the basketball team, and I would not be the student or athlete I am if I did not go to this school. It has helped me in many ways.

i transferred here from Keller High just this year, and i am amazed at the differance. everybody at this school is very nice, including the teachers. here, i have not yet seen any discrimination or bullying like i saw at my old school. the teachers are very nice, but very strict to. but i like this, because at keller teachers just let the kids walk all over them. also, here students are actually very respectful to the teachers, which i did not see a lot of in keller. the work is hard, and there is a lot of it, but like the person before me said, it is also very fun. at keller, all i did was memorize stuff, but here i feel as though i actually understand it. i really love this school, and i think everybody who wants a real, open-minded education should come here.

I have been at this school for about 4 and a half years, since the school first began. I have to say that Westlake Academy has honestly been the best thing that has ever happened to me. The teachers all know us personally and spend so much extra time striving to let us all reach our maximum potential. The work is challenging, but we do so many interesting activities, that is is hard to notice. We rarely read from textbooks. Instead, our classes debate, discuss and analyze. The class sizes are small, so I know everyone in my grade extremely well. There are plenty of people who love to pick on this school, but I honestly cannot understand why. Certaintly you can dislike and leave the school, but there is no need to publicly ridicule it. If you dislike WA, don't go there.

What an amazing school! My family moved to Westlake because of the Academy and we are delighted to see how our children have now the possibility to receive an outstanding education. The mission of the school is clear and aligned with what our children need to be successful adults. Again, Westlake Academy is a blessing!

After being involved with the Westlake Academy for four years we decided to remove our children and go else where. The school has great potential, but is academically unchallenging, has poor leadership, and is incapable of competing with the local public schools. The complex is beautiful and the children look adorable in the uniforms, but the 'excellence' ends there.

As a teacher at Westlake Academy for the past three years, I am in an ideal positon to comment on how the school has progressed throughout its short history. It has gone from a new, inexperienced edcuational institute to a model school, which others are following. Not only does the Academy prepare students academically (TAKS and Stanford test scores are far better than State and surrounding schools), more importantly, it provides the scaffolding needed for students to be international lifelong learners. I have had the real pleasure of seeing these students develop and mature over three years, in such a way that has amazed teachers, parents and the students themselves. The curriculum is international in content, challenging and really does require thought and understanding. It is not simply a facility where students are taught to read a text book, regurgitate the information and take a test. They learn how to think.

After 4 years we are seriously considering leaving. As of the last month of school, our teacher was still incapable of spelling our child's name correctly. The children were ridiculed for incorrect answers, and the parents are ignored. I would not recommend this school to anyone who felt their child is more than a number from which state funds are collected.

Westlake Academy is an excellent school. My children have are challenged academically and supported emotionally. The teachers are highly qualified professionals that know the students and encourage them to meet their potential. The Head of School is knowledgeable and compassionate. I am extremely happy with our decision to move to Westlake because of Westlake Academy.

This is a great school! This is an IBO school (International Baccalaureate Organization) motivated by its educational mission, focused on the student. All of the classes and programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. In all of the US there are only 4 IBO schools that offer primary years thru a high school diploma and this on one of them. Great teachers! The quality of the education is excellent...it is apparent in the test scores for the school. My children LOVE this school. Spanish, strings, art, music, sports, school newspaper, foreign exchange student program,and other extracurricular activities are great! We are so grateful that our children are attending this school...we could not be happier!

The teachers are very well prepared and the principal has done a wonderful job at recruiting people from all around the world - england, Uruguay, Denmark, Mexico, Puerto Rico, to provide the students with a more solid cultural background. The school not only strives to be multicultural but bilingual. Students are taught a second language since kindergarten. A wonderful school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
