Westerville City School District Reviews

I began school in this district at the beginning of my fourth grade year. My elementary teachers were very welcoming, and I was placed into advanced classes, like my previous school placed me into. Once I got to middle school, I had similar relationships. Every time I asked a question, my teachers would make sure I understood the answer before moving on. They did this with all students in my classes. As a high school student, the teachers did the best they could with how many students came through their classrooms. At Westerville Central, my high school, there are so many students that seniors do not get lockers. Students cannot open enroll into my school from another Westerville high school because we have too many students. Being over capacity at Central worries me because it means that teachers cannot focus on making sure every single student understands the subject before moving on.

I've gone to Westerville schools my whole life and I've enjoyed every bit of it. I'm currently a senior at Westerville North High School and the people there are very enjoyable to be around.
Teachers are very supportive and helpful. If you're struggling and ask for help they are more than willing to help during a free period.
After freshman year you could be in a class with people who are in different grades which is really neat because it allows you to take classes with people who are older/younger than you, and you can make new friends.
Westerville offers College Credit Plus which is awesome! You get to take college classes for free and you don't even have to leave the school.
We're very fortunate with the technology classrooms have. All english, math, and science classrooms have Smart boards which makes learning fun and easy.
Great school district! So many activities going on to help young and growing minds. Over the years the district has become more diverse and accepting to those with ethnic backgrounds and disabilities. Great academics that really challenge you to push yourself mentally.
