The faculty here obviously care about their students, many becoming parental/mentor figures in my life even past graduation. In the aspects of education, safety, clubs and counseling, WHS truly excels. The Arts, both fine and performing are all amazing departments with high quality directors and instructors! The Westlake High School Broadcasting System provides great local news coverage, as well as a club that provides video film editing training.

Over the past four years, Westlake High School has prepared me for the future, helped me discover my passions, and given me a memorable high school experience. I'm happy to go to school every day because of the welcoming environment and all the fun activities that I can get involved in. The staff really cares about their students and are well-educated. There are a variety of courses to choose from that allow students to chart their own education path and develop their particular interests. The career shadowing service is an excellent way to prepare students for life after high school. If I were to change WHS, I would make it easier for students to anonymously report incidents of self-harm or suspicious behavior to adults. It would also be nice to bring back the senior privilege that allows students to leave campus for lunch, which was taken away a few years ago. Overall, I am very happy with my experience at WHS!
Very nice building, most teachers are awesome! There are some very hard working teachers that I really appreciate. There are also many fun activities and clubs to join!
