Westfield Public School District Reviews

20 reviews

What I love about Westfield Public School is their involvement in the community. Every school in the district cares a lot about clubs and extracurricular activities that can get anyone in the community involved. People of all ages attend Westfield public schools' sporting events, musicals and plays, and fundraisers organized by their clubs. Academics are challenging but well worth it in the end and teachers are highly experienced and willing to help their students outside of school hours (through extra help and emails).

Westfield has a great school system. Teachers and parents are supportive from start to finish, but independence is a focus. There are many sports and activities to participate in, and many kids have friends that they've known since they started their sport. High school is rigorous and competitive for those who want it, but there is a lot of support staff and inclusion. Students leave the district very prepared for college.
The best descriptor of Westfield High School is its competitiveness. From kindergarten on, the academics are extremely competitive. Think, I was a "gifted and talented" kid bullied by my gifted peers for falling lower in the ranks of our class of 20 students. The sports are competitive within the team, but the winners of the scholarships and awards go to the students whose parents fund the Booster program. The theater program is aggressive, the social cliques are extreme, and I saw no shortage of homophobic, racist, and ableist tendencies in both the professors and students. While the quality of the education is definitely above average, the students that fall in the center of the crowd are lost to the care of the staff. Terrible environment to be anything but a white, all-American athlete.
