Westlake High School Reviews
Review Westlake High School
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.
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!
I think Westlake does have very good health and safety policies at school. We have a police officer at school during school hours and we always have campus supervisors all around to make sure random people don't walk on to campus. The school nurse is also very helpful. She always knows what's best for the students and helps with anything we need. Also, the cafeteria food at Westlake has a great health program. Everyday we have fresh made lunches which includes: burrito bars, potato bar, sandwich bar and much more delicious things. Usually school lunches are really gross but Westlake has a great cafeteria food and it is very healthy!
