    "Love this school. Very well organized, keeps parents very well informed with weekly newsletters and phone calls. Many workshops to assist parents in helping their children plan their academic future. The Deans of every House are very hands off and accessible and the teachers are engaged and communicate and offer tutorials and take the time to contact parents know where they see the need for additional help."

    "I have found excellent teachers and some really poor ones. In particular, one particular language department head displayed some pretty questionable ethics in the past. The school principal at the time (no longer there) whose name is actually mentioned in some of the reviews, circled the wagons and ran defense for her when she was clearly lying and covering up her poor judgment and behavior. The good teachers often don't stay and the bad ones hang on to their lifeboat/paycheck. Teacher accountability has always been a problem there. Having said that, this is probably one of the better high schools in the district."

    "Both of my sons attended 4 years and graduated from Westside and are now succesful in college. The dean system is excellent and really makes the difference. The new principal, Ms. Stewart, provides strong leadership and draws on her time at WHS as a dean and from her continued focus on the best developments in education. Students are expected to excell and there are plenty of academic opportunities. The list of colleges attended by WHS students is impressive. All students have an opportunity to find areas of interest to them through courses, clubs, fine arts and sports. The campus is modern and safety is a priority. School spirit is strong and the staff believe in Westside -- check it out for yourself!"

    "I am the mother of a special needs student. He attends some resource classes and some regular ed classes. The school is very willing to help choose the best types of classes for your student. They treat each special needs child as an individual. The school nurses are phenomenal and are so helpful. The special ed administrators are also great. All the teachers have worked so willingly with my child. I am very impressed. This has been a great choice for my special ed child."
