“We have so many wonderful educators here at Westlake Academy, many of whom are moms, and this is where they’ve chosen for their kids to be. I think that is a big testament to what is taking place here. After 10 years of experience in different academic settings, this is where I want my children to be, because the education is that great.”

Jodi Douris, PYP Special Education Teacher
