My daughter attends Westmont High School and as a public school, she seems to be getting a good education. I would like to see that she is getting prepared for college by proper guidance from the school to learn to be well rounded in social and academic teachings.

I considered sending my child to private high school and I have to say I am VERY happy I choose Westmont. This school has a nice community feel, an excellent mix of students, and great teachers and faculty. Our child has attended elementary, middle and now high school in the Campbell School District and has excelled. Our child is quite balanced and resilient, enjoys academics and does well socially so the fit is very good. Frankly I would prefer to send my good kid to the our neighborhood school, keep the scores improving, and continue to increase our home value.

My kids thrive(d) at this school. Diverse student body in all ways. Wide range of teachers, with mostly excellent teachers that prepare kids for college and the real world after graduation. Students are expected to be proactive about their education. If student is struggling, there are plenty of resources to help them if student and parents are proactive about solutions. Teachers do not coddle students that mess around and then try to fix it all at the last minute. That does not fly so stay on top of assignments and grades with the available tools. There is a good PTSA and a lot of parent volunteers in extra curricular activities. If your child does well with academic mainstream will be fine and thrive. If child struggles academically, use the resources and get outside tutors. Classes teach to the mainstream and advanced academics for most part. Plenty of AP classes and the only high school agricultural program in the Silicon Valley area. Quality PTSA, ASB, sports, clubs. The diverse student body is a wonderful thing too. My kids, our family enjoy the school and community.

The administration at this school is terrible. Completely irrational and unreasonable. When there are issues, they don't want to hear about it. They automatically blame students for issues without doing their due diligence and getting to the root cause of problems. More than once, issues came up that the teachers and administration assigned as issues with my child, only to later discover that the teachers were the problem, proved by data. Status on school work is a chronic problem - teachers not giving students credit for assignments, errors in grading, etc. Keep ALL of your student's work and be prepared to verify EVERYTHING related to grading. The communication is really bad -- don't expect answers to email or returned phone calls. They just don't want to hear from parents. They site a 48-response time to email and other inquiries in the student handbook, that they don't adhere to in the least. When you insist on speaking with them, you can muster up a meeting but, ultimately, they are just humoring you...It's 'their way or the highway'. I'm SO sorry that I placed my child in this school, and am looking into other options.

It's like pulling teeth to get information from most of the administrators and teachers in this school. My child's grades are not kept up to date, so the information in School Loop is not always accurate. I have to hound the teachers to find out where my child stands. We have seen everything from missed assignments and to data entry errors. Without extreme monitoring to make sure that this all gets cleaned up, my child's grades would have been negatively impacted to an extreme. Most teachers and administrators do not answer email without multiple requests and/or escalation (student handbook states that parents can expect responses in 48-hours). We have even experienced examples of teachers singling out my child openly in class and embarrassing them, because I have asked questions of the teacher via email....It confuses me to no end. Teachers often complain that parents aren't involved enough in their child's education. At Westmont, when you actively participate your child's education, you get ignored and your child gets openly mocked in class. It's ridiculous.

We are residents in this school district. We think the environments are greater than many other places of silicon valley. The Elementary schools and middle schools are great and getting better and better. However, this high school is so lagged behind in academic side. Why? We think the most important thing is that the school principle and board do things wrong somehow. It seems they are out of date in silicon valley and still lay on the back and enjoy the best view of the valley, and wait for retirement! Come on, man, wake up, every other school districts are making progress these years, you can't stay the same place to do nothing! Look at our neighbours, saratoga, los gatos, cupertino, everyone are keep going, why not you!

I agree completely..my son is not a trouble maker, however he is failing in 2 subjects and i have not been informed about this issue from anyone from the school. He tells me all the normal reasons a Jr. would use. Its the teachers fault, no homework, no help, its too hard and tacher is out sick..I email teacher and no reply..he didnt put effort in Star Testing because it didnt matter. Tomorrow hes not going to school because he has no class for star testing and the school doesnt take roll call in star testing. what?

Teachers do take an active interest in the students and make the effort to encourage them to do better. Teachers are approachable, capable and willing to put in extra time before and after classes to help students.

For a single mom without bandwidth to stay on top of every assignment, I am disappointed by the lack of outreach by the school. I was never once contacted by a teacher or counselor to discuss any issues, it has been do-it yourself. You must rely on checking the computer and initiating any meetings on your own. I feel if a child is failing, I should receive a call. In fact, my son is not graduating with his class in June, and if my son had not told me this, I would never have known. Westmont seems to be a good school if you have a student who loves school, but my son fell below the radar because he was not a trouble maker, just a student who seems to have trouble with school.

Westmont is an above average school. It has a very involved student body. Academically, it has done better than most of the other public schools in its area. In fact, this is a school really on the rise, and I would highly recommend this school
