Westlake Village is a safe community. It offers a lot of opportunities for work. I went to Westlake High School and it was amazing, the staff, the teachers and the students were amazing and helpful.
Great schools. Students from all high schools have a friendly rivalry but all get along due to knowing each other from club sports, church etc. Lots of outdoor activities with wonderful hiking trails.
