Westside Leadership Magnet School Reviews
i used to attend Westside Leadership Magnet School in 2003-2008. These years were the best I ever had. I can't explain how happy I am that I was a student there. It's one of the school that I ever enjoyed going to. I also graduated from there.
I think the school is kind of small and I tthink the school should stay in untl 3 o'clock
Westside Leadership is in the process of becoming the "hub" for the local Marina Del Rey/Venice neighborhood. Regardless of what people have said, the past is behind us, and this will be the best school on the Westside within the next three years.
