  • Save your kid the trouble in the future and don't send them to this school. Undisciplined & horrible attitudes. Some teachers may be good, but these teachers deserve better.

  • There are some good teachers @ this school but I don't think they properly prepare the children for the future. Very quick to suspend or write up the children. The overall moral of the school is pretty low.. This is my kids' last year here unfortunately....

  • My daughter is in 8th grade at this school. the teachers are great. I do agree they need more learning or my daughter will not be ready for high school next year. She does really well now, but i believe she should be futher in her studies than she is. I have looked at the other schools in westwood and they are ALOT worse.

  • This school's new administration has ruined it. Do not send your child here. I pulled mine out.

  • DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL! The school needs a data-driven curriculum. It is currently based on centers. The teachers are not allowed to use text books (only as references). They have not met AYP. The teachers are great, but they need help too. They need to be supported and given guidance, not threats. The children need to be children. They need to play at lunch, not be caged in the cafeteria and made to sit silently. The school cafeteria is horrible. The children need a well-balanced meal, not rice with meat or pizza with a side of scrambled eggs. Who would eat that? The lunch ladies take uneaten food off of the children's trays and puts it back in the kitchen so that they do not waste it. That is against OSHA rules. The latchkey program is just as bad. The children are made to sit quietly with their heads down. They are not allowed to run and have fun. They cancel services only a day in advance, so what are parents to do? They depend on those services. The last week of school, they cancelled latchkey all together. School is still in session, why isn't latchkey still in session? They can not answer that. If you have other options, do not send your child to WVA.
