Overall, West Hills has been a great place. Ive lived here since I was 10 years old, and I have attended 3 schools in the area. The people and environment make you feel so at home. There are so many young kids and teenagers in the neighborhood, which makes it feel like a big family. Baseball fields, parks, movie theaters, strip malls, and so many more attractions for families are located right in west hills.

Clean place with good families that really make an effort to get to know you! SAFE neighborhood, place where kids can play outside by themselves. Although the roads need to be updated and definitely MORE TREES need to be planted to make it more greener!!!
I love living in West Hills because it is such a small town so you know everyone everywhere you go. There are also stores and food places all over so you can get pretty much anywhere you need to be within 15 minutes of driving. I live 5 minutes from each of my grandparents so we see them almost every weekend. It is also well kept for the most part with very little homeless people and very little trash/litter. There are good jobs opportunities everywhere. I currently work two jobs which were both super easy to get.
