I have grown up in money my entire life. This school reflects that in every way with its fantastic views and areas. One of the most recent beautiful additions was a butterfly garden. The addition of WiFi to the garden is nicely complemented by securely, which blocks every website that is needed for school projects so you end up using your personal computer or phone instead. My favorite thing about the school is that they would rather spend $300,000 on a “math plaza” which is a really just a slab of concrete that nobody uses than helping our struggling sports program or maybe replace the portables. WA Excels!

Westlake Academy is a phenomenal school with dedicated, caring staff and a rigorous and structured curriculum. Students are challenged with higher-level coursework to prepare them for college and secure a bette understanding of the knowledge they are learning. The school follows the IB curriculum which is rigorous in itself, but has a limited selection of classes. The campus is beautiful and uplifting and the students are very determined and excel academically. Students must understand that time management is extremely key as the workload can be overbearing when not planning accordingly. The teachers are excellent resources to help throughout your educational journey and strive to help you do your best at the school. One note about Westlake is that it is not renowned for its athletics, so I would not recommend for those who primarily want to focus on sports over academics. Overall I would highly recommend Westlake Academy to disciplined and academically-driven students.
Westlake Academy is an IBO world school which has allowed me to grow both in and out of the classroom. The rigor ha challenged me throughout my high school years and has prepared me for my undergraduate studies and beyond. I have developed many special relationships with classmates, teachers, and many other individuals in the community through my 9 years of attending this school. The persistence of exemplifying traits such as open-mindedness and reflective has opened my eyes to the wonderful opportunities I have been blessed with while being a part of this school which I will always call home.
