Westbury Reviews

All Categories
The Westbury community used to be mainly Caucasian. Over the year, African Americans and Hispanics have come in making the neighborhood more diverse. This change has also effected the schools in this community. For example, Westbury high school is one of the lowest rated high schools in Houston Independent School District. I chose not to attend Westbury HS even though I am zoned to it. I attend a school in East End because I feel that Westbury is unsafe and needs to be academically improved.

Westbury has been my home for over 8 years now and has welcomed our family with open arms. There are many things that this community has been able to allow my family experience such as using Anderson Park and the Westbury Community Garden. Westbury can improve by ensuring the safety of its residents.
It is a nice quiet neighborhood with big trees and "not-so- cookie- cutting" houses. It is close to town yet gives a sub--burbs feel.
