Academically, Westwood High School is great, but the social aspect isn't, students are very cliquey. The school is great with support for students with mental illnesses and well-known diseases, but if you have a rarer illness or an invisible physical illness, it's hard to get support. Great teachers!

Students are challenged in higher-level classes, and teachers genuinely care about the well being of their students. The administration however does not take into account student input regarding new policies and changes. I honestly wish they would have prepared students better for life after high school, getting them ready for college-level work earlier.
The teachers and staff are all so understanding and passionate about helping their students succeed. There is such a great diversity in the type/style of classes, whether it be arts or labs or theater; there are so many options. There's also a great support system for students who might be struggling with school work or family issues or time management. Many students take advantage of the great sports and clubs offered.
