Westwood Hills Elementary is a complete disappointment. I had such high expectations for my child's early education and the institution that would provide it. I have been let down, my child has been let down and I am appalled at the treatment that this school gives its students and parents! These are years I can never get back in my child's life. You ruined them westwood!
