NICE Community Schools Reviews

2 reviews
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.
