Free SAT Prep
Just imagine how much our overall student population could improve if we took advantage of the free resources on the Applerouth site- http://www.applerouth.com/westlake. The online resources have a $99 retail value, but is absolutely free for our 10th-12th grade students. 9th grade student pay a nominal $25 Fee for a yearly subscription. Why spent thousands of dollars for college, when there are resources like this that can put our students in a situation where colleges are paying our students to attend their institutions? It's already happening at Westlake. Please visit the Applerouth site for this free information, all you need is your child's Student ID. If you have any questions is the process, please do not hesitate to contact Applerouth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-728-0661.
Thank you parents for your continued support of our students. It is truly a partnership between the home and school.
