This is an extremely sought after elementary school. The teachers a responsive and creative! Westwood has great administrative leadership from the principal all the way down. I cannot say enough about Westwood, its a great school any parent should be proud to send their children to.

Westwood is a diverse and friendly community.The teachers are wonderful and the new principal is dynamic. There are family events and grade level events all the time. Test scores really don't give a good picture of what a caring and fun environment this is.

All of my kids have attended Westwood, so we have been part of the Westwood community for years. The teachers are excellent and the parent involvement is great to see. There are many fun community events like the Fall Festival that even my high school kids want to come back and be a part of!

I am very pleased with this school. I was reluctant at first and tried to get my daughter in other neighboring schools due to low API scores. I learned now not to go by that. I believe it depends on the teacher, and how much you do with your child. You could be going to a school rated a 10 in other ...  Read more
