Westlake High School Reviews
Rating 3.85 out of 5 487 reviews
It's been alright, some good teachers and some unproductive ones. The AP courses I have taken have all had good teachers. Decent facilities, big band and arts program, good sports for water polo.
I enjoyed my time at Westlake High School and I believe it is a great school that can definitely help prepare you for college-level coursework.
While some teachers are very good, some are not focused on teaching. Administration has not dealt with COVID well and, when not in COVID was not easy to communicate with.
I have had a great 3 years at Westlake High School—enrolled in 10th grade. The teachers are well educated and provide the students with all the necessary information to be successful in and out of the classroom. Textbooks are provided for free and can also be located online for ease of access. Despite the pandemic, online learning at Westlake High School, using Zoom has been fantastic. Every teacher comes onto Zoom with a smile on their face and ready to teach the students.
Westlake High School is an outstanding high school in both academics and athletics, with especially exceptional English and Computer Science, and Foreign Language Departments.
Westlake High School has amazing teachers who are willing to take the time to make sure their students are successful. One thing I would like to see change is putting bathrooms more spread out throughout the campus.
I’ve enjoyed my experience at Westlake. The kids are cool, fun, and smart. Many teachers are very good, some are mediocre. I wish the school had a stronger focus on teaching the students how to think rather than teaching us how to pick up skills/regurgitate information.
It is a very white and privileged school. There’s not that much diversity within the school and there are definitely niches and cliques.
Westlake High School is a great school that excels in academics and sport every year. The student environment is extremely competitive, but there is something for everyone to be good at! Great staff and campus as well.
My experience at Westlake was overall, very good. Having been in college now for three years, I can say that the school does prepare you for the college course load. I felt very prepared going into University and had already developed the study skills and work ethic that was needed for higher education, in part because of the expectations of Westlake.
Westlake High School is a great school for academics as well as athletics. they provide tons of opportunities for their students to succeed! Westlake is a great school to take rigorous classes to help improve your education.
It is a great school! Nice campus with good teachers and academics. The one sorta bad thing is that socially, people can be very cliquey.
Safe and clean campus. Teachers and staff care about the students. The school is very academic focus and prepared their students well for colleges.
My experience at Westlake High School has been very pleasing. Staff and teachers are very involved with their students and make everyone feel included. Academically, classes are challenging which prepares students to be successful in their future careers. Additionally, school spirit is very popular among the students. Overall, Westlake provides a positive environment for anyone who attends.
I liked how overall great the school was. It was always maintained nicely and the teachers were mostly nice. Most of the teachers were amazing and you enjoyed going to class. The football team there is also very good. Great location of the school.
As a recent graduate, I was exposed to many higher level AP and honors courses, but lacked the passion from teachers to further enjoy the topic matter.
The school is very nice and the students are all welcoming and it's very easy to make friends. The administration really cares about their students and make the school inclusive for all.
