My overall experience with NICE Community Schools has been great. I have met new friends, kept old, and had a lot of fun with them all. Being here I have been offered the opportunity to join and participate in all sorts of clubs and sports. My academics have made great progress as I attended NICE Community Schools and I plan to use the knowledge I have gained in my future.

I would not choose any other school. I have the opportunity to, but I could not nor would I switch schools. The teachers and students are great. The curriculum is the perfect level of difficulty for me. It is not the easiest school to graduate from, but I am going to be very proud to graduate from here. I am glad that I am a part of this school district. Westwood is a wonderful school.
Excellent School District that helps to prepare its students for furthering their education after graduation whether its for college or trade school.
