Westlake High School has a great academic program including Advanced Anatomy for those aspiring toward a medical profession. My child attended an expensive private school and the rigor of the academics (especially math) is stronger at Westlake High though the teachers seem not be as engaged in the individual person. Good choice for a child who is more independent and would like to have good subject choices.

I had a great experience socially as well as academically. Westlake is a beautiful campus and a great environment to learn in.

Overall I have had a pretty good experience at my school such as making new friends and seeing a new perspective of how people live. I grew up in the valley and money was hard to come around with, so the teachers tried their hardest to have their students go through the right path and not fall behind. Most students and some of my friends in the valley grow up with drugs and gangs, making it hard to not be influenced, but not impossible. My parents moved us to Thousand Oaks for our better being. Now in this school its hard to live with bratty rich kids but not as hard as it is to live with gangs. Besides the dirty looks and insults from students, the school itself is good because they teach us numerous amounts of information. The school has lots of athletic helpers and the decathlon and mock trials are doing great as well.
