  • My children had the misfortune to attend this school. The pressure to put your child on ritalin begins in kindergarten. When I brought my sons prescription to the office to be administered I was horrified by the large box they pulled out. There must have been a pill bottle for half the student body. I also regret not filing a lawsuit against Westwood elementary when they crossed the line by involving themselves in my families personal life. Your child might not get any special treatment but they do however offer biased, one-sided ~free~ legal advice and services in child custody cases. And if they are short one teacher, Mrs. Clark the secretary will take over. She graduated college so long ago the grandfather clause allows her to fill many roles. Just make sure your child is getting plenty of calcium so she does not break any of their bones with her brand of teaching. I think her right to man handle small kids is grandfathered in as well.
