I was a student here for my Freshman and Sophomore years, can't say I like this school at all. Some teachers are good, a lot aren't. There's a lot of bullying issues, and the whole facility has an entitlement attitude. Transferred to Lehi High School, and have enjoyed it ten times more than I ever did at WHS.

This school is new and did have some issues at first. But it seems to have work those bugs out. The teachers are excellent and really care. My son really likes this high school..

as a parent i have noticed how much happier my student has been after transferring from lehi granted it may be because she has lots more friends but she enjoys all her teachers and is challenged yet getting good grades due to the help of the teachers i would recommend this school to anyone!

This schools leadership and direction is a joke. The challenges in academic work is well below par. My daughter is not challenged rarely has to do homework.

It's true, Westlake had some challenges as a new school, but many of the initial kinks have been worked out or are continually under scrutiny for improvement. The school's newness, however, is an asset since the faculty and students are generally excited and open to new strategies and ideas. This atmosphere, combined with brand new facilities, makes Westlake an excellent place to learn and thrive as a student.

My daughter was a sophmore there last year. She has had a great experience with the students, teachers, and administration. She attended many sporting events and the teams performed well for a brand new school. Prom was her favorite dance, with pictures at the school and the dance & dinner at the La Caille. Overall, we have been happy with this high school.

Horrible administration. The school is an overall bad atmosphere, and I would not recommend sending your child here.

School lacks leadership. whenever we have had a problem (which is alot) the principal is never in. School lacks control of its students and if i had to ever put another child through this school i would refuse.
