Living in Canyon Creek the high school your teen will attend is the much sought after Westwood High School, part of the award winning Round Rock School District.

Westwood, located in NW Austin, is a National Blue Ribbon School with a reputation for academic excellence. Ranked 78th in Newsweek's list of the top 100 schools in the nation, Westwood offers qualifying students choices in the International Baccalaureate Progam, a comprehensive Advanced Placement Program, and a wide variety of highly successful extracurricular activities.

With outstanding faculty and a multi-talented student body, the Fine Arts Academy is another exemplary program at Westwood.  The Academy offers a variety of unique learning experiences in Visual Arts, Dance, Music and Theatre Arts.  These classes maximize creativity, offer opportunities to perform and allow students to interact with other students and teachers who have similar interests.  Not only are the students more involved in courses that truly interest them, they are learning to appreciate and understand courses of study that may be a future career.  Because of that, the students can actually enjoy going to class.  It's hard work, but, it's fun!

My assistant, Carol, has two daughters who have graduated from the Academy at Westwood - one in Theatre Arts & Dance and one in Dance alone.  Carol will tell you it was a lot of hard work for them, but, the girls learned to perfect their crafts and it was a joy to watch them grow in confidence and grace.  Whether watching her daughters perform in the Black Box at Westwood or on the stage at the RRISD Performing Arts Center (a beautiful center available to all students of the Round Rock School District), Carol says they are moments she won't ever forget.  Both girls started dancing at the age of three, and were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to continue their dance education throughout their high school years.
