    "There are some good teachers but overall I was disappointed with how the school is ran. The principal is hard to reach and for a Magnet school I dont feel as if my child was being challenged here. I have moved his school for next year as a result. Parent meetings are scheduled at 9 am during the week so it makes it difficult for working parents to attend. This school is also rumored to be closing for renovation but they have said nothing to the parents although most of us have asked to know when as to not disrupt our kids education. Disappointing to see a Magnet school in a great area scoring so low year after year."

    "I think Westside has an amazing team of teachers who are extremely dedicated and love working with their students! There is truly a community of cooperative teachers who are always happy to lend a hand or create an exciting project together. The global awareness theme adds an exciting and engaging layer to the school. It is amazing to have the ability to teach students on a deeper level about the world around them in relation to science, social studies, and current events all through an environmentalist perspective!! The families are very active and involved and make Westside events and activities wonderful for the students. After having worked at many LAUSD schools, I am very happy and proud to make Westside my home. It has been a wonderful year and I am very much looking forward to many more great ones at Westside!!"

    "I am a teacher at Westside and I love this school. We have the most wonderful, creative, energetic, curious and diverse group of students from all over Los Angeles. The adults know the children's names, and we have students who are graduating eighth grade who have known each other since kindergarten. We can use the beach as a science lab, as a PE space and as inspiration for writing. We focus our curriculum on global concerns such as the environment, with the beach and local wildlife as an example of how the environment can be cared for and nurtured right outside our back door."

    "I have been very pleased with the evolution of this school as it started to focus on global awareness and really elevated the level of teaching and student experience. I have been pleased with their administration including the principal Cyril Baird and magnet coordinator Deanna Fulton who both have shown professionalism in their dealings with my son and my husband and I. I was especially grateful for them including my son in their running program and training him to run the LA Marathon this year. You don't see many principals spending so much extra time outside normal school hours to help the students growth and become more disciplined."
