    "There's nothing extraordinary about this school. It is true that I have found many of my AP teachers to be very helpful and productive when it comes to doing their jobs, and the school's high test scores reflect the effort made with students. With that said, some AP teachers and too many CP teachers don't do their jobs and inflate grades. For AP students like me, there are plenty of AP class options, but, considering the widespread affluence of this community and school, there should undoubtedly be more foreign-language-based selections, including Latin and AP Spanish Literature, especially provided the usefulness of long-term Latin and considering that this area has a largely Spanish background. In regards to WHS extracurriculars, there are the usual clubs and opportunities that most public schools offer, but there is simply this and not much else. One of the more upsetting parts of this school is the lack of action. The ASG body has done little beyond occasional fundraising that draws minimal attention because it's nothing new, interesting, enjoyable, or special. A lot of schools now have their own weekly television broadcasts. WHS is WAY behind on this."

    "This school is all about sports. The teachers are average. The parking is terrible. If you aren't in the top 1% academically you get ignored and slip through the cracks. I would not recommend this school."

    "Westlake High School is just amazing. As a parent who attends PTSA meetings, volunteers in the counseling center and student events, I am so blessed my son attends WHS. He has a 504 and we couldn't be happier with the help and support of the school. There is something for everyone at WHS!"

    "As with anything, Westlake can rate a 5 or a 1 depending on the student. It s tremendously competitive for academics. Many of the top kids are driven and attend Elite, Jeng or other SAT prep courses. If your child can handle the stress, it s clearly the best place for advancing to a top college. Westlake places perhaps twice as many kids at top-25 colleges than other schools in the Conejo Valley and their AP and SAT scores reflect the more competitive environment. Some of the teachers at Westlake are truly stellar and rare is a teacher that doesn t belong. Their AP scores are off the charts and their counselors are beyond compare. On the other hand, as someone else highlighted, it s not a good place for kids with disabilities, and that s apparently well-understood throughout the 504 support community. And if your child is truly gifted the opportunities are also limited. Westlake is not a Palo Alto, Gunn or Torrey Pines. You may wish to consider Oak Park or Oaks Christian for a truly gifted child and supplement with online college courses from Stanford, MIT, or Duke the Conejo Valley schools are not setup to handle unconventional students and non-traditional situations."

    "We are out of district transfers and have had positive experiences across the board. My son is a sophomore and absolutely loves his new school and the student population. The teachers, office staff, district staff and programs are so much better at Westlake High School/ Conejo Valley. My son is in regular college prep classes, but they are challenging and the teachers are professional and organized. The campus is gorgeous! I'm so happy we were able to transfer to WHS. I simply had no idea just how much we were missing out on while at Cam High. I cannot make a single negative comment."
