More about Westlake Boys High School


"Westlake helped me a lot in my study life and my journey.  It put my studies onto the right track.  It taught me a lot on academics and also how to live in New Zealand, that's the most important thing.  How to make friends with other Kiwis or other international students from different areas."

"At Westlake I am having a really good time.  It's really fun.  My favourite experiences are outdoor education stuff.  Next week I'm going on an adventure challenge.  I really recommend Westlake because it's a really good time over here. It's a good school.  You find new friends and learn a new language."

"Our son is adapting well to the studies and environment of Westlake Boys High School.  We are proud of him.  We think we made the right choice.  We would like to recommend Westlake Boys High School to all."

"There's a place for everyone here at Westlake, everyone is very supportive, they help everyone out.  There are groups for everyone; they'll find something they'll love."
