    "These teachers think they are the "epitome" of teachers. Well, let's just say that they should each be given watches, courses of proper behavior/etiquette (how to properly "speak" to parents" - yes - they are not 'Gods') and be brought a little back down to Earth when they are hired. I sent one polite, e-mail to a 10-th grade teacher, questioning an "incomplete" grade that my daughter had on her on-line grade-book for THREE months - just trying to see if the assignment was turned in, etc., and I was bludgeoned with "Westlake handbook policy".....That "incomplete" grades were gives THREE days to make up, and then they were turned to "ZEROS".. Why, I ask, did this specific teacher not post this ZERO and lead my daughter to believe that she could still make up this grade???? POOR, POOR, POOR example and time management on the teacher's part. Plus, the teacher has ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT to BLAST the parent via e-mail for politely voicing concern! This school shows EXTREMELY inconsistent enforcement of policies and educational principals. I made a horrible, horrible mistake ever sending my child here. My money could have been better spent by being donated to the local penitentiary!"

    "Westlake Academy is obviously very academically rigorous, which isn't always a good thing. Because the classes are so small; students are very competitive. There were some wonderful teachers in the past, who were constantly helping troubled students, but most of them have left the school. Some teachers that remain are neglecting these students, and they just keep getting further and further left behind till the end of the year when its almost impossible to help them out. The teachers always talk about how great students need to be if they want to succeed, in a way that can be a real self-esteem issue for most kids. If a student is less academically driven or committed then the other students, they will have a hard time. This school has no focus at all on the arts, and in my opinion, has a very close minded idea of a "well-rounded student" in which they pride themselves on creating. This school is a great idea for those who top their class, and are constantly devoting their time to work. But for the student who doesn't commit themselves to toping their class, this is not the best idea. Those students will just be neglected and keep falling behind."

    "The post from December 8th, 2012 noting AP curriculum is incorrect. While the Diploma Program (DP) is the curriculum of instruction, AP curriculum is supported indirectly where the same content overlaps with the DP. Students may choose to take any AP test on campus. Dr. Clint Calzini Secondary Principal"

    "There are some wonderful dedicated teachers, however, in recent years a high turnover of faculty, administration,as well as MYP/DP coordinators. Class sizes are small, which is ideal for learning environment, but not a welcoming arena for students who are new to the school. IB curriculum is exceptional especially the DP program. The school is not for everyone, especially for children who do not have a strong personality. Curriculum is competitive to neighboring school districts, be aware that Westlake is focusing only on IB curriculum, no longer supporting AP curriculum or testing, which is a disadvantage to the graduates as many of the university's offer very limited credit for IB classes and diplomas."

    "As a recent graduate of Westlake Academy I can say many things. The academic strength of the institution is high, but as with any school, what you get is equivalent to what you put in. The teachers care more than anything in the world, which is great. Yet, the school does little in regards to peer bullying and caters greatly towards those without learning disabilities. A beautiful school with faculty that really care, but with students who would rather pave their way to a bright future than to lifelong friendships or balanced lifestyles. If I did it again, I wouldn't go back. Surrounding schools have on par academic programs, stronger arts programs, and the possibilities of having a class size greater than 28. A good place for those who don't have trouble in academia, but not for those who wish to have a diverse group of friends."
