  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I believe Westwood is a school where any student feels welcomed to learn. The vast diversity in the student body is one of many characteristics of the school I enjoy; giving me a chance not only to have a wide social network but also to learn about different cultures in a friendly and amiable environment. As for the previous review by a parent I would just like to say that my peers have surplus of spirit and what some people may say to be "out of control" I say it is their enthusiasm for their school and learning!
