10 Parent Reviews for Westwood Middle School

Westwood is an average school in an average town. It's not outstanding, and it's not terrible. On a continuum of schools available, though, there are better ones in Winter Haven. I don't want to make it sound bad, because I know the teachers work hard, but the school has low self-esteem.
