Great school - one of the best in the nation. Science and math programs are exceptional. Bullying is almost nonexistent - ALL are welcomed. Being smart is cool at this school, and it's even cool to be a total nerd. My kids loved going to school here and got an excellent education.

Cheating is rampant. So are drugs. Counselors are often unavailable and unhelpful. I feel forced into taking all AP classes by both teachers and peers. The school promotes test scores, not learning. Some departments are great (cough cough PAP Chemistry), some are not (cough cough AP World History).
Great school for ALL. This school has some sort of MISPERCEPTION among those who don't know live in the area and have NO IDEA what they're talking about! Example: Oh, those Westlake kids all drive Mercedes, etc. Um, no.
