The Westwind Preparatory Academy is a charter school offering a quality education that is geared to providing students in 9th through 12th grades with a curriculum that is individualized to meet the needs of every student. The administration believes in working with the whole child, which means they do not just provide academics, but also provides the needs of every student, which includes mentally, physically, and morally.
The curriculum used at the school is one that works with each student so each can learn in a style that helps them succeed while instilling responsibility and moral character. Along with core subjects, the school offers basketball, football, volleyball, track, cheerleading, student council, and National Honor Society.
Most of the remarks regarding the school mixed. Some state that the school is excellent and that teachers, staff, and administration are caring and devoted. Many stated that since the new principal was put in place that things have improved or the comments would certainly not be positive. The small class size is excellent and does help students succeed. The curriculum has a variety of courses and gives students more choices than a traditional school. Most students expressed that going to school was like being around family. A few students stated the school did not offer accelerated courses and that the counselor chooses all the courses students take instead of allowing them to take subjects of interest. Lunch is served from the McDonald’s that is close by and there are no other options for students unless they bring their lunch.
When looking at the AIMS scores, the percentage of students that passed the reading exam was below average by 3%, below average in writing by 10%, and below in math by 3%, but above average in science by 14%.
The test scores are pretty good with still being close to average in most courses. If you are considering Westwind Preparatory Academy, it would be best to learn more about the lunch that is served and talk with other parents to make sure the school is a good fit for your family before enrolling your child.
