My Grandson goes to Westlake Middle School he has been there for 2 years now. The teacher are very caring and helpful if your child needs help or needs to make up some work. The after school program is great the have tutoring and sports for the children after school. If your child misses school they give you a call.

The Common Core Content Standards have greatly directed the flow of education at Westlake for the better. Westlake is improving by providing students with literacy skills that will move them toward college and career skills needed in the future. For example,my child has increased the amount of writing that is done daily. Also, my child reads novels and works on a variety reading assignments. My child writing has improved and test scores are high. Unlike the bubble in CST, the Common Core Standards address skills that my child will need f to compete globally, like technical reading, argumentative writing and speaking (presentations). Westlake is on board with high standards for students. In math, my child is expected to explain the steps in the problem, analyze and look at the relationship in problems. The math teachers needs aides to assist her with meeting the needs of such a diverse population of students. Westlake is developing technology in the school for a more visual approach. They use website"Brainpop" in some classrooms. Teachers need to provide a list of upcoming concepts covered for the school year, so that parents can work along side them to help their child.

Love it, love it, love it! The music program is awesome; Mr. Porter does an awesome job. Props to Ms. Keller and Mr. Been for sixth grade core classes as well. My daughter has thrived academically and socially at Westlake; glad to be part of the Westlake community.
