Westfield Public Schools Reviews

Westfield is a school system in which it is only challenging if you seek out the most difficult possible route. Support was great for getting as many students into college as possible but limited for those who wanted to branch out to a more difficult school. Teachers were sassy but accommodating once you got to know them. If anything, Westfield showed me what I wanted out of my college experience - small classes, approachable professors, and the opportunity to get involved in more than just my school work. Westfield had the latter, but the two former aspects are ones I gladly have found in college and were not available at Westfield.

Over my four years at Westfield high school I have experienced many different situations in which affect the way I view Westfield high. We have a great diversity with students from around the world and exchange student programs. Our resources aren’t the best because of our lack of technology and money. But overall my experience was a little above average!
I enjoyed growing up in the Westfield Public School System. When I was young, I loved all my teachers and classes. Elementary school was the best. In middle school, North Middle School was very modern and clean also very safe. The teachers in some classes were not informative and discouraging. Through my high school career, Westfield High School has become crazier. The halls are flooded with hallway wanderers, teachers are not patient, and the school building itself is extremely old. They do not provide the resources we need.
