Akron Westfield Senior High School Reviews

I feel that the atmosphere is welcoming, but not pleasant. The school makes very little effort to make extracurricular activities include and help students. The activities use favoritism to support certain students, while ignoring others. While in the classes, the teachers are very caring. They try to show compassion towards their students, but many teachers fail. They are not adequately trained to understand and support a student suffering from mental health problems. Even though they put in effort to help, they are not knowledgable about the proper support to provide. The students are not college-ready after graduating from this school. Students graduate with classes that did not prepare them for college level classes. The school offers dual credit classes through Western Iowa Tech. These dual credit classes have been the best experience of my high school career. These classes offered me an opportunity to develop into a rounded student.

Akron-Westfield is a school that you are allowed to be yourself! The teachers here are one of a kind in my books, if you are in need of help on any subject in school a teacher that may not even be teaching that particular class will help you. The community of our school and the atmosphere of our school is phenomenal!
I’ve been at Akron my whole life and I truly believe all of the teachers ha e prepared me for my future. My teachers are like family, and my coaches care so much about me.
