    "I took my daughter out of the Ursuline School, where she was "journaling", not learning to write and watching movies like Romeo and Juliet in Biology class. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the honors and AP courses. She finally learned to use an outline. They used the Teaching Basic Writing skills in the elementary school which was fabulous but at least writing was taught in the high school. The teachers are great and held to a high standard."

    "I have two children who have just recently graduated from Westlake High School. They have been accepted to 7 schools that they have applied to and they have recieved great scholarships in 5 out of the 7 as well! I commend Westlake High School's staff as well as the extremely helpful and resourceful principal for all of the time and effort they give to make sure students learn in a comfortable and very studious environment. There is a myriad of extra curricular activities as well. This is just the thing that excellent colleges look for! Westlake's old reputation of being just 'O.K.' should absolutely be put aside. It's not the teachers that decide on the child's education, it's the child. Another point, Westlake Middle School also plays an excellent role in preparing the students by providing them with an excellent education as well. Westlake is wonderful!"

    "My son just graduated from Westlake while two of his friends went to an upscale private school in NYC. My son was accepted into all of the nine colleges he applied to, and was accepted into specific programs and honors programs in each. Plus he received tons of scholarships. His friends from the private school are both going to Boston College (the best they got into; no Ivy's) - my son rejected B.C's offer! (since he got almost a free ride from Syracuse and into their elite Whitman school and honors program). Thanks to Westlake's double-accelerated math program (starts in middle school) and extensive APs, after one college semester, he already has 36 credits allowing him to double-major, minor in a language, complete the honors requirements and still intern abroard! While at Westlake, he travelled with the honors program to Russia, Greece, and Eastern Europe. Plus great sport programs!"

    "We'll be taking our son out of there soon so that he can get a better education at Iona Prep. Good arts and sports programs but that's it. Math and science are particularly behind. It certainly made me wonder what my tax dollars are going to."

    "Westlake High School is improving every year. The old reputation should be forgotten, I am a graduate of the high school and I got a great education. It's all what you make of the experience and the classes. The reason why kids do bad there is not because of the teachers it's because they don't care enough to put in the time to study and succeed. Academics are great, and they offer a wide-range of AP programs for upperclassmen. Parent involvement, I felt was quite a bit. In my opinion, the parents seemed to sun the school. There are a myriad of excurricular activities available for students. Overall, great school, I received a great education, and I realized it when I went to college, and my school is very reputable, where I read some of my friends papers and I was shocked at the bad grammar, etc."
