I rate Westowne a 10. My son loves this school and so do I. I appreciate them taking the steps to help my son learn more. I love that they communicate well and use all resources to help children with learning disabilities and behavioral issues.

We have had a great experience so far at Westowne. We have loved every teacher our children have had. We have recommended moving to the area to friends due to the school.

I can’t say enough good things. I would like to make a note about test scores. This school is extremely diverse racially, economically and by country of national origin. It is like a little United Nations here. We have a lot of English language learners at this school and they are wonderful. But- the test scores might not be as high as in nearby schools as the children take a little longer to acclimate to an English speaking environment. But mark my words these are intelligent children whose parents really care about their education. Once their language mastery increases this school’s test scores are going to shoot through the roof. Sometimes test scores are a good indication of education quality, but other times they aren’t. This is one school where the test scores aren’t an accurate reflection of the quality of the school.

We lasted two years at the school before we had to switch our child to another school where we met multiple other families who all would rather pay then send their children to Westowne. There is zero advanced programs for kids in K + 1st grade so the kids are expected to sit around quietly and wait until all the other classmates catch up to them before advancing them. Programs that they do well like their drama program they just drop because 1 teacher leaves. Education seems like it is not super important to the leadership.
