    "The history department isn't that strong because the majority of them are coaches who care more about sports than the course they are teaching. Also, the school is really divided when it comes to regular and AP courses. The teachers who teach AP classes tend to be the stronger teachers. However, I feel like the regular teachers are better at helping those who are struggling where as the AP teachers are better at helping those who are excelling."

    "I think that the teachers here at Westlake are incredibly hardworking. Westlake has a reputation for it's rigorous education, and while that's reflected by the students, the teachers aren't given enough credit for all they do to build and maintain that reputation. It's all of the hours they put in outside of the classroom to prepare lessons for us that has created our reputation. Many students here at Westlake participate in some extracurricular from Varsity Sports, to Choir, to Theater, to Robotics, the list is endless. Often students will miss school for one extracurricular or another and the teachers here are really understanding and are available for tutoring sessions to catch students up on lessons, or labs, or lectures that they had missed while they were out. We're really lucky to have teachers who care about our academic success just as much as we do, and who also care way beyond the classroom. The teachers here at Westlake prioritize building good relationships with their students and want to know about our future plans for college, and the extracurriculars we participate in outside of their classroom. Westlake has some of the best teachers, and coach staff that i've ever had the privilege to work with."

    "I dislike how there isn't much diversity. I also dislike how the majority of the school's AP classes are STEM based so if you are interested in more of the liberal art classes, your GPA takes the fall. The school could be better about making it clear that there are counsellors to talk to about personal/emotional problems and where their offices are located. All this being said, the school has a great science, math, and English department. The library is great for checking out books for extensive periods of time. The teachers are usually pretty good at setting aside time for tutoring."

    "This school was great for me, as the facilities were nice, the education I received was superb, and the students and faculty are all around great people and have truly shaped my life these past few years! I would choose this school if I could do it all over again in a heartbeat because of the warm and nurturing environment at Westlake."
