The teachers at Westlake High School are great! They greet students with smiles and encourage positivity in the classroom daily. Westlake High School teachers also ensure students feel confident and safe to express their personal ideas to one another, therefore opening a whole new door up to learning opportunities and creativity. Besides, if a student needs extra support Westlake teachers are always willing to open their classroom at scheduled hours to personally ensure no student gets left behind. Moreover, the English teachers at Westlake launched a program called the Writing Center which gives students a tool to peer edit essays, broaden their exposures to writing styles, and support students to go out of the box. Overall, from their daily joy they bring to school to the special programs they offer, the teachers at Westlake High School are truly dedicated, caring, and great.
Review Westlake High School
The school itself was very beautiful and well taken care of! Most of the teachers were great at what they do, and I had a positive experience. There were never any issues of racism or classism. The bathroom situation is a bit annoying, as there are only two open for students during class time, and they are far from classes to walk to.
Westlake High has so many supportive teachers that help you not only in class, but in outside activities as well, and they prepare you well to succeed later in life. There are many excellent activities such as Anatomy, Mock Trial, AcaDeca, Journalism, and others that will be sure to fit students' interests!
