Westlake Academy is a municipally-operated, public charter school serving students in kindergarten through grade 12 located in Westlake, Texas. We are an IB World School whose mission is to provide students with an internationally-minded education of the highest quality so they are well-balanced and respectful life-long learners.
“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
