    This school is awsome! When we were planning to build a home here we only wanted in greenwood area because we heard nothing but the best of this school. The teachers here are great! My daughter is in second grade and loves going to school everyday. She says school is fun and I love to learn. Thank you!

    Westwood is a truly wonderful school with the best teachers around! I think they are doing a great job. They encourage parent involvement and are very open to questions and concerns. They truly work hard to give each child the individual attention they need and deserve!

    I have been very happy with my son's experience at Westwood. I have been able to volunteer at the school and I really admire how the teachers work individually with each student. They honestly understand that each child learns differenly and at different paces. I have many friends and family memebers on the southside/Greenwood area and none of them feel as confident in their children's schools as I do.

    Westwood honestly Rocks! We have three daughters that attend Westwood and they have all been very blessed to be a Westwood student. The teachers are incredible smart caring and always give over and above! Principal Harkness is the same way. Mrs. Harkness knows and cares about her students and the parents. Westwood is an awesome facility staffed with positive teachers great students wonderful parents and much support.

    I think this is a really good school. Everyone there is so helpful. I think this is a school where they really want to help kids and really care about them. I would refer anyone to go to this school. My son loves it there. I thank everyone there for caring and being so helpful. I hope when he goes to Middle School they will be as caring and helpful. Thank You!
