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!

The administration is pretty average, the principal is a pretty cool guy if your good student. Students who misbehave don't like him because he is strict about the rules, but all for the benefit of the student body.

The school has this Zeros Not Permitted program that means you have to turn in assignments and the only way you can get zeros is if you cheat. So if an assignment is late of incomplete, you get "ZAP"ed, which means you either have to go to that teacher during Success Time or stay after school on Wednesdays. It's not really that big of a deal as long as you get your work done, but can kind of be a nuisance is you have homework out because you were sick or gone for an event.
Akron is your average small town high school. Most students love it, but I often find the lack of diversity and "everyone knows everybody" mentality a little suffocating. You feel as if your personal life gets little privacy here. Overall, I believe the best thing about the school is the teachers. They are fun, genuinely care for their students, and active to help provide excellent extracirriculars.
