    This school is AMAZING! We are so happy with our switch to Westwood from another town. Sheehan has been wonderful for our children!

    The teachers and staff are superb best school in the area however if special needs is what you require then Deerfield is the choice.

    This school hasn't been any better from our old school (Greenlodge Dedham) except for the fact it is in Westwood we will be looking into other posibilites for my children school should be a fun place to go but here it is not.

    This school has never helped my children... EVER. I wish something would be done here. Since this we have switched to the Deerfield School which has been a blessing. What a switch... Consider Deerfield School for your kids... they will be better in all suibjects in the long run.
