Kudos: Our absolutely incredible administration, support staff and teachers have outdone themselves. They have not only made distance learning work, they have made it engaging, fun and full of Westlake excellence. Many of our staff worked throughout the summer to reimagine school while continuing to focus on both academic and social emotional development. Our teachers truly shined during the first days of instruction and helped students feel comfortable and supported. Our community thanks you!
