    "New West is an outstanding school both for their middle and high school program. The break the mold of poor quality public education in LA - thanks to their relentlessly hard working Principal, administration team and teachers. With over 1000 applicants this year alone for only a handle full of open admission spots - the only heartbreak for parents is that their is not enough spaces for the enormous demand for entry. Keep up the stellar work New West - but please look at opening up additional campuses across LA!!"

    "Has great potential but seems to lack an understanding about what makes a good high school successful. The principal of the school doesn't show up until late morning or early afternoon. Not available to talk to until then. Really enjoyed getting to know the high school assistant principal of the high school this year but then was told he left. He seemed to understand high school students and connected well with with high school students. The current administration doesn't seem to understand high school students or what it takes to run a successful high school. There seems to be little very little respect from administration to the high school teachers"

    "The word most parents use when talking about their middle schoolers' experience at NWC is "bloom." Kids learn through projects-based curriculum and "simulations" (hands on experience with what they study). They write their own textbooks in each class - my child's notebooks and projects are works of art. Some say the school is too easy, but you won't see me complain that my child does not spend an entire weekend with projects and homework. Kids are engaged in the learning and so creative! Teachers are young, it's true, but I no longer view it as a negative. They are enthusiastic and communicate their passion to the kids. (How often have teachers thanked your kids for a great year in a public school? I can't remember either.) The electives are diverse and rigorous, including classes like speech and debate, languages, art. In addition to academics, the school nurtures adolescents' social and emotional development. Kids are great at the school because they are taught to be great kids. I could see the difference in my child immediately after she transferred to NWC from our local public MS. Two years later, she is a happy, well-adjusted, and highly motivated student."

    "High-schoolers beware New West Charter High School is a failing experiment. They're a "college prep" with no AP classes. Honors classes are a joke: both honors and non-honors students are mixed together in the same classrooms, taught the same material at the same pace, and are given the same tests, with honors students only being expected to complete an extra project during the semester. They've been unable to keep teachers for the entire school year. In its 2 year history, each year has seen a teacher leave midway through the year. In the ensuing chaos, student work and tests get lost. Very little learning takes place until a replacement is found and has time to figure out where the last teacher left off. The school's API score has suffered. After consistently going up to near record highs, the poorly structured high school has caused the first drop in API score in the school's history. Most telling is the fact that their own college counselor has advised students to find another high school to improve their likelihood of getting into college. NOTE: This review is SOLELY for the high school. The middle school is outstanding and well deserving of its good reputation."

    "New West is not a supportive learning environment for students who need any special attention. The administration treats Federal law governing students with disabilities as if it were optional. The administration and faculty are shockingly ignorant about even the most common learning disabilities and use the "blame the student" approach that had cruelly prevented so many students from getting the free appropriate public education every American child is entitled to . Like so many charters they accept federal dollars ear marked for Special Education but fail to actually educate the students the money Is intended for. If New West wants to behave like a private school it should stop taking tax payer money."
