Welcome to Westlake High School, home of the Wildcats! Our faculty and staff have created a learning environment that allows each child to explore areas of interest and find courses that provide the individual student with appropriate rigor and challenge at every grade. We emphasize in our courses, the importance of teaching thinking skills, communication skills, social skills, self-management skills, and research skills. The attainment of these skills is critical to students’ success during high school and more importantly for life after high school. Our work, in partnership with parents and our community, reinforces the importance of mutual respect, cooperation and sound decision-making and has resulted in an incredibly supportive environment at Westlake High School for all students.
