Westmont Hilltop High School Reviews
If you want your children to be challenged intellectually without taking honors courses- forget about it. Oh, and if they fall behind they get put in classes with "the dumb kids." I say that satirically, but I had a kid in my class who had down's syndrome once. The "slow class" teachers are rarely pleasant and often teach asinine lessons. What is a cell? Can you do this worksheet? Now don't mess up the colors! They also don't make an effort to teach- out of a class of 20-something, only three kids could grasp chemical equations.
More than one person has been thrown in "academic reinforcement" on the grounds of a few bad grades or mental illness as well. Functional ADD? Uh-oh, you better take Study Island for 90 minutes!
If you're lazy and have a mental illness, this is not the school for you.
