Westwood Regional School District Reviews

I love my school. I like the teachers, there’s just a great atmosphere. But whenever there needs to be any changes it takes extremely long. For example, say that there’s a broken hinge on a door. It takes a month and a half just to change it. And it’s not just physical things that need to change, the entire science wing needs to change. Westwood could and should be a blue ribbon school but had it not been for the science wing, a lot more people would have higher GPA’s.

I have had the honor of spending my childhood attending the schools of the Westwood Regional School District. I feel that the schools that compose this district teacher their student very well since my friends and I have become very knowledgeable about many subjects. They also offer a variety of classes within the schools to help students branch out and discover their interests, ultimately, helping them get an idea of what they want to do in the future. Furthermore, there are many programs and extracurricular activities that are provided to the students, giving them a glimpse of certain fields of study. Overall, I believe it does a great job of preparing students for the future.
Westwood HS is where I learned to learn. I have a 504 and test terribly. I'm a hard working student, but I struggle, especially with tests. They make me very anxious. My accommodations include extended time on tests and my teachers have provided me that time at every level. They have also built up my confidence and expect me to advocate for myself, which is a life lesson I will take with me as I continue my education. I have many strengths that I found with the help of teachers who care about my success more than they care about test scores and checking off agenda boxes. I've been lucky to be part of the Westwood culture where "Excellence in education" isn't just our tagline, but a tangable way of teaching and learning.
