Westwood High School Reviews
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!
Westwood High is a great high school to prepare you for college. All the teachers are super passionate about what they teach and are always willing to help. As for the students, everyone is very welcoming and nice and it is overall a good learning environment. Classes are challenging but there are many resources in order to do well. The one thing Westwood lacks is diversity since it is a predominantly white community, but the METCO program has helped the issue a bit. There are an abundance of clubs and activities to choose from and numerous ways to get involved at Westwood High. The school itself is very nice, clean, and big. It is overall a wonderful school and a great experience.
Westwood High School is a great school. The clubs offered are phenomenal and for the most part, the teachers are engaged and want to learn. The most prominent shortcoming in my opinion is the lack of diversity: of the ~250 students in my grade, there are less than 10 African-American students. There are a decent number of Asian students, but for the most part, the student body is white. For the kids who want to do well, there are good resources. The staff is helpful and more developed/organized clubs like Model UN and the Science Team are great opportunities.
