Mission Statement

The WHS PTO's mission is to enrich the educational experience of students at Westlake High School by providing volunteer and financial support to Westlake High School’s teachers, administrators, counselors, and students.



The Westlake High School PTO was founded and incorporated in 1990 to support the Westlake High School community by fostering a spirit of collaboration among parents, teachers, and administrators and by raising needed funds for programs both inside and outside the classroom. 


Through our No Hassle Fundraiser, the WHS PTO is able to FUND the following:

  •   Support for staff professional development
  •   Support for staff classroom supplies, staff appreciation luncheons, staff appreciation week, etc.
  •   Support for WHS student appreciation week
  •   Support for campus and technology improvements
  •   Support for numerous extracurricular activities including Project Graduation.
