Westlake High School Reviews
It focuses on the really smart kids and is very serious about its reputation to be a great school academically, but it fails in the area of helping Special Ed students who happen to go to this school. It is so out of compliance it is pathetic, but no one cares and no one makes any changes. It just lets the sp ed students fail.
