Westlake High School, Atlanta, GA new facility opened in 2008

Westlake was formed by the closing of Westwood High School Vikings and Lakeshore High School Lancers in College Park as a part of the Fulton County School System consolidation plan. Located at the site of the former Westwood campus, Westlake has risen to become a shining example of what happens when you combine the best qualities of two former schools. The new Westlake campus was constructed in 2008.

Westlake High School is a diverse and prominent institution of learning located in southwest Fulton County, Georgia. We are a suburban high school located in a predominantly middle class community that is accredited by the Georgia Department of Education and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Westlake competes in the largest classification in Georgia – Class AAAAAAA (7A). We field teams playing Varsity, Junior Varsity and 9th Grade.
