Getting You Ready for a Lifetime of Success
Our goal at Westwood is to help every student be ready for a lifetime of a success starting with college attendance. This page is designed for our students in grades 9-12 to give you the information you need to be successful. While you receive a lot of in-classroom instruction and advice, this is your one-stop-shop for the forms and information you need. Also, check out our college counseling page for information about applying for attending college.
Information to Help You
Life doesn't just happen. Success comes to those who work for it and take action. Here is some information to help you on your success journey. Remember that you are responsible for having SAT and ACT scores sent to your colleges. Also, you must request Move on When Ready transcripts directly from the colleges issuing you the credit.

We have lots of clubs for you to join and encourage you to get involved. We have 4H, Drama Club, Literary Team, National Honor Society, Quiz Bowl, Student Government, and Y Club. Check out our clubs page to learn more.
We’re here to help you with your search for the perfect college. Every student is tested with the YouScience program in tenth grade to learn about your skills and talents. Each year starting in ninth grade, we host parent and student meetings. We encourage you to get started thinking about college. See our college counseling page for more information.
All students in grades 7-12 have a computer ID, Powerschool ID, and school email account. You also have access to Google Apps and other tools. Check out our technology and get set up today.
We encourage students to get involved in sports. You’ll learn teamwork, fair play, and how to be a competitor. (We play to win.)
We have baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, softball, shotgun, tennis, track, and wrestling teams for different ages.
Check out our athletics page or talk to the coach of your prospective sport to get started.
Take the Time to Set Yourself Up for Success
We Have the Tools to Help You Manage Your Academic and Extra Curricular Life. Use them!
Tools We Give You to Be Successful
Every student in grades 7-12 receives a PowerSchool username and password. This is linked to your computer userid and password. So, when you change one, you change both!
A Personal Email
Each student from grades 7-12 also has a person email account ending in westwoodschools.org. Every teacher and other student’s contact information is pre-loaded in your address book. Just type their name and there they are! You can also use this to get student discounts when you purchase technology for education purposes.
A UserId and Server Space
Each student in grades 7-12 receives a computer userid. This ID can be used on any of the school’s computers on campus. Also, each student has a 2GB server drive to store files that you can access anywhere on campus. This is shown as your U: drive in network places.
You email is through Google Apps for Education. This means you have access to all of the GSuite of Services (it used to be called Google Drive.) You can access all of these services at drive.google.com and log in with your student ID. This includes Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, Drawings, Calendar and many other services. This also means that you can set up Google services on your mobile phone using your Westwood ID.
Print From Your Computer or Mobile Device
The Westwood network is engineered as a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) network. As always, you must have permission to use your device for school-related work. You can print to the color laserjet in the Computer lab from your mobile phone or computer. See the technology director for help setting up your device. You must be on the student wifi network in order to print. This does not give you access to your network U drive.
Manage Your Mobile Calendars
Westwood uses Google calendar to manage our mobile devices. Click the link below in order to add the Google Calendar to your mobile device. When we make changes to the calendar, it will be updated on your mobile phone! (We also have some sweet calendars on this website too.)
Click the button below, then click the calendars you wish to add to your Google Calendar. Then, just link your Google Calendar with your phone.
Sign up for an Office Live ID
We recommend that you sign up for a Microsoft Office Live ID. This lets you access Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint online for free. If you have Microsoft Office at Home, you can sync your files between school and home using their service!
We also recommend the digital notetaking service One Note. This is a free Microsoft tool that will sync between computers, your mobile phone, and all devices using the Office Live ID. See our IT Director for help.
