Greetings!This is to express our gratitude for inviting us to the School's Navratri Programme. We were simply bowled over. Within a few months of your inauguration, for you to have made your children put up such an impressive show, is pure magic. Congratulations!Here are a few things that were especially noteworthy:A certain class was perceived in every little thing you did.No effort was spared and great attention was paid to every little detail.The confidence of the children was remarkable and their enthusiasm infectious.As Rkcians, we look out for things such as the time taken between two performances and the conduct of the staff at those times: well you passed the stringent test with distinction.Another aspect, we Rkcians are particularly proud of, is maximum participation by students: yours was 100% ...

I, Ashutosh RaithathaI would like to share few instances that I have experienced with the school. First of all I must say the school premises is beautiful and area utilization is optimal, keeping in mind the surrounding environment of the school. Talking about the facilities, the school has a separate ground for football, hockey and cricket with a golf putting area which I never expected to see in Rajkot. The school has its own well equipped Science Lab, which I appreciate the most. The school management is one of the finest, with the best educationist of India on board and their future plans are amazing . Seriously I believe the ideas shared with me were very relevant and I am sure the school has a bright future. The School fees is also very reasonable. I am sure about my decision that I have chosen the best school for my child.
There can be seen two broad schooling options for the parents these days. The first kinds are world-class education with elegant infrastructure run by some best professionals in the fields. The other kinds are run by some local bodies where both the quality of education and infrastructure are compromised. Most middle class families are compelled to opt for the latter kinds of schools as the first ones would be too expensive for them to afford. At Westwood, we could see a rare combination of both, the word-class education and affordable fees structure. We could see the insight and expertise of the best professionals involved in materializing the Westwood School. The best part of the Westwood School is that, unlike the schools run by the local corporates, the think tank of the school consists of the experts from the educational fraternity.
The Westwood School is undoubtedly one of the best schools of Rajkot. Here we follow the latest teaching practices. Our students greatly benefit from the one to one attention given to them by the staff, the weaker students are very specially taken care of. The amenities and educational facilities provided in the school are definitely some of the best found in Rajkot.
The Westwood School is a blessing to this city as it brings out the best in each child. It has a holistic development approach and provides personal attention to everyone. It helps the child to grow in terms of Academics, Sports, Dance, Music, Art,and Cultural Events.
I am privileged to study in The Westwood School.The technology used in my school is one of the best in the country. My Teachers are friendly and we enjoy a good rapport with them. My school has Robotics and I am keen on studying this subject.
The Westwood School is a rare school which provides Subject Rooms and we students enjoy moving to different classes for different subjects. Our Teachers share a good rapport with us and I like how they respond to our questions. The entire Westwood team is a fun group to be with.
