Principal's Message

August 2021


To My Cougar Families,

I’m extremely excited to start the 2021-2022 school year with a motivation and energy that continues to drive our positive direction and progress at Westland High School. It is a privilege and honor to know that our staff has the opportunity to shape our young students as we prepare each individual for the real world. Last year was a challenging year for all, as we transitioned from different learning models, such as blue and green days to remote or all in, and it is our hope this year to be operating as close to a normal school year as possible.


As we near the start of school, students are challenged and empowered to carry out our WHS motto R.O.A.R. Cougars. Respect – Organized – Accountable – Response.


Some important details to the start of school will be communicated as soon as possible so each of our students and families can plan accordingly.


  • Freshmen Orientation/Schedules on Aug 17th, 2021 from 1-4pm

  • Schedule Pickup for Upperclassmen on Aug 18th, 2021 from 2-5pm

  • Open House on Aug 24th, 2021 from 4:30pm-6pm

  • First Day of school for students on Wednesday, Aug 25th.

Never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at the office phone 614-801-7000.


ROAR Cougars!
