This school is across from large apartment complex and there seems to be high turnover of students. The teachers in younger grades are good but as kids get older not so much. The only staff I ever see mingling or smiling on campus is the Vice Principal. The Principal always seems to be in a rush. Office ...  Read more

This school is amazing! My daughter had some outstanding teachers here. I have to applaud Mrs. Style for teaching my daughter how to read. I loved her morning read program as it was welcoming to be in the class every morning and get to know the other kids, parents, and teachers. All the other teachers ...  Read more

My son who is in Kindergarten is enjoying his school life, which I never did as a child. Thats very important for me. Teacher are approachable and warm hearted. Lots of activities in the school make it a fun for parents too. My son is growing day by day as his academic year progressing.

This is a fantastic school! If you can get your child into the 2/3 multiage class with Mrs. Matsushita and Ms. Chopak, do it! I've had 2 boys in there so we've had 4 years total with these teachers and love them! They will truly be missed! Westwood is a great neighborhood and the blend of ethnicities ...  Read more

The best principal and great teachers. The principal truly cares a listen to you. When ever I had some concerns about my child's teacher or classroom environment, he acted right away. I love the program they have for math. My child is a first grader, and they tested all 1st graders for math on October ...  Read more

When my son entered kindergarten at Westwood after two years of a Montessori environment it was a big adjustment to say the least...but the school staff was very supportive in making the transition for him a smooth one. There were challenges with his speech and language skills that the school addressed ...  Read more
