    Westwood has truly been a blessing to me and my family. We may have to move soon and the hardest part of the move will be finding another Westwood! Thanks Westwood!

    Our daughter has attended Westwood Elementary School since kindergarten she is now in second grade.I can tell you as a very actively involved parent that Westwood is by far one of the best schools in the USA.All of the staff from principal to custodians sincerely LOVE children and want them to succeed in life.Living in a small town like Fairview gives you an opportunity to get to know the staff outside of the school enviroment.In school or out the staff at Westwood put children on the top of their priority lists!Our school makes learning fun and easy.My daughter loves school so much that she cries if she has to stay home.Just the other day we had to take her to the doctor and she was worried about not going to school.For me that says it ALL!When a child cries to go to school something is definitely being done right! WE love you WES!
