    Extracurriculars: We do not have a lot of clubs at Westover. And ,most of them do no meet often. And when I tried to make a club finding a teacher to sponsor it was difficult.

    Overall Experience: I have never had to bring my parent up to the school for anything except awards and parent-teacher conferences, but I have heard of many students bringing their parents to complain about the school. And the school usually bends to the parents will. Especially if the kick up a fuss.

    Teachers: Most of my teachers are invested in their students because I take honors and AP classes. But in other classrooms I hear about all types of behavior problems from students and the teachers just give work to keep their students busy.
