This school has gone down over the three years my son has attended. The teachers give out WAY too much homework, including assigning homework on the weekend and "finishing classwork" as homework, plus regularly assigned homework. Teachers show favoritism towards certain students and student morale is low.

My daughter got mostly A’s at Westlake during her 3 years there...now at High School she is finding that she is WAY behind most of her peers, especially in foreign language and science. We also got sick of teachers quitting in the middle of their terms...she didn’t have a social studies teacher for half of eight grade. I will say the sports at this middle school are outstanding but is that really what we send our kids to school for?
Great school with caring staff and dedicated administration. Plenty of clubs and afterschool activities to choose from, too.
