We have some teachers that are not doing there job. They have been there to long and have a pattern to cover there weekness. The principal has to know but his moves with them are not for me to know. Two out of the years my kids have not gained the support that they need. The parents want the children to be happy but one of my children now comes home sad and feeling he is not getting what he needs also. Wait till next year is what some others say but I do not feel that a child should be lossing out in an education.

My son just finished his Kindergarten year at Westmoor. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the school. The three best things about Westmoor: 1. The teachers. 2. The principal. 3. The other students. All the teachers I met this year were so nice and thoughtful. My son's teachers were both fantastic! My wife and I work, so sometimes I was dropping him off. It seemed that everyone I saw not only knew his name, they knew my name and my 2-year-old daughter's as well. The principal is a very special man, and all the students are lucky to have him. I only saw him three times, and the second two times he remembered my name. He also always "dressed" for the occasion! It's amazing to walk into a school and see older children hi-five your child and/or hold his hand. And he made great friends.

Westmoor School has many advantages other schools in the state of Illinois do not have. The school prides itself on its 'traditions.' Many of the teachers went to Westmoor School and grew up in Northbrook. There isn't a lot of staff diversity or perspectives. It's not a receptive school to working parents. PTO meetings are at 9:30 AM so if you work, and don't have a flexible schedule, you'll never be able to attend. Parents who volunteer during the day are favored by the principal & receive the most attention.

Westmoor is the finest school in the state. I love coming to school each day thanks to the environment created by our principal, Bert Satovitz. People are treated like they really matter. The children are the beneficiaries of this fine institution.

Westmoor has a warm caring environment that you can feel when you walk into the building. Children are treated as being important and held to high expectation for academic and behavioral standards.
