    "From our experiences -Overrated & a poorly run private school taking public funds. Nothing is really high academic even though they pretentiously say their classes are. Teachers are mediocre at best. Compare curriculum and school work at other schools, you will find that New West is not really academic. Most schools have to teach kids of all stripes and do not have the generous funding from wealthy parents that New West does. If your child has any learning differences this is not the place for you since they will most likely try to bully your child and you, so that you will leave. they can barely teach the regular classes. For a school this size you will find all the same problems of drugs, cliques, fights etc. If you live in the area University High is excellent so why would you bother with this school. No real sports, or extracurricular and advanced classes are combined so really not challenging for anyone. This is really a HUGE PASS and Sigh of relieve to the person who worried about the lottery. They can barely manage a small school well so giving them a student body of 875 is frightening thought to the community we work with."

    "I'm posting to complain about the application process. As prospective parents we had to first go to a mandatory meeting at Santa Monica High School on a Saturday morning. Hundreds of parents showed up. Then we had to return to the school to pick up a lottery number a couple of weeks later. After the lottery, on the results, only 6 (yes 6) of the hundreds of people who spent their valuable time applying to this school were accepted through the lottery. All the rest of the students were "preferences" in. Knowing this in advance, why on earth would the school waste our valuable time? Other schools have lotteries too, but at there is a reasonable chance you'll get in."

    "New West is an amazing school. I have a 7th grader and one in 6th. I think what sets New West apart from other schools is the teachers. My daughters come home every day excited and informed of all the curriculum. My daughters have relationships and a voice with all their teachers. No matter what they have access anytime to receive help. This school shapes the whole child. My daughter has advanced in their dance program and really is excited every morning to get up and learn something new. We have been in other schools where my kids were very unhappy and what a difference in their attitude when thy're thriving and enjoying. If your thinking of sending your child I recommend it 1000 times over"

    "New West is an exceptional school. My son began as a 6th grader and is now in 10th grade and I have seen him internalize the school's values of holding oneself to high standards and taking responsibility for one's work and actions. He is eager to learn and to feel challenged by his teachers. There's a warmth and camaraderie among the students and teachers that I have rarely seen in other schools. The students seem smart, confident, poised and cheerful and the campus has a refreshing lack of snobbishness. I highly recommend this school."

    "As a parent of two children at the school, I really did literally "win the lottery" (admission is fair - your number is pulled out of a hat or it isn't). Everyone who is at this school wants to be there, so the parent participation is outstanding and high. The facility is beautiful and technologically advanced, the staff is amazing (outside-the-box teaching as needed with enthusiasm and passion) and the administration is experienced and dedicated. Kids can be themselves at this school, whether your child has an IEP, is into sports, is learning how to play an instrument, is a reader or dancer - there is something for everyone at this school. Are there limitations? Of course - there are at any school, and it may not be the right fit for your child. There is no field, there is a strict transportation policy, kids and parents must volunteer, etc. The pros far outweigh the cons, at least for my family."
