Terrible school, don't go here. There are AP classes but the cons outweigh the pros.

Ok but I would not send my future child here.

It was terrible ad emotionally scarring. My child was told to give up on herself and her education. Fortunately, we discovered a school that had teachers and administrators who believed in teaching students and helping them overcome learning hurdles. It took longer, but my child earned her accredited high school diploma.

The school's rep of being a good public school in the area depends upon your view. There is a lot of AP classes offered..too many as the pressures mount up on students to take them. They WORK you harder, not smarter at this school. My student had all honors courses and teachers piled homework on. Where 20ish problems in Geometry would suffice, here comes 48. In English, for one exam, the students were required to know the title of each chapter of the novel- Why in the world is that necessary? For band, you cannot just play an instrument, you are required to have service hours. On top of that, you are required to go see several concerts, but it doesn't stop there. It is not enough to see concerts, then you MUST write a 2 page paper about the concert. Again, why? Most band students are smart and probably taking honors or AP classes.. so just keep piling on the busy work. Teachers are unimpressive and some are lazy and the freshman Geometry teacher liked to talk about his personal life instead of teaching subject matter. We went to a private school as matters would only get worse.

I used to think westlake High School was going to be a good school to learn and advance in my academics. The school only teaches on learning style, and only caters to one political demographic. If you learn too fast for your class, the teachers treats you unfairly and treats you less than the other stidents. Once certain teachers find out that you are conservative, they treat you unfairly. They will ignore you, or grade open assignments unfairly. I strongly suggest that any parents that want their conservative student to feel safe, so not send their child here.
