We, the members of the Westwood High School community (including its feeder schools), believe a critical first step to creating a less stressful, more enjoyable and more collaborative learning environment at Westwood High School is to change the rank in class policy. We acknowledge the legal need for rank in class, but the current system of giving numeric placement facilitates an environment where academic dishonesty and intellectual competition are rewarded, with diminished student and community well-being as unfortunate byproducts. We respectfully request that the administration and the District accept the recommendations made by I Am Not A Number so we can further foster transformational education at Westwood High School.
