Westfield Public Schools Reviews

What i liked about Westfield was how well they prepared me academically. I've seen a bunch of my friends from other schools that have struggled with the transition from high school to college because the gap is so large. Plus, since Westfield High School gives so much work, they inadvertently teach you time management skills as well. However, one thing I would like to see change is the culture. There is so much division between the students that you can see the different types of people sitting in their own places. If the school can mesh together all types of kids that go there, it can strengthen the bond towards the school and create a new culture of acceptance.

Plenty of opportunities for the students. A really resourceful town with quality schools. The high school offers Film, Computer Science, Culinary and many more classes. Also really the school system really prepares their students for the following schools, whether it be from Elem - middle, or middle - high.
I have attended Westfield Public Schools from kindergarten through senior year of high school. Each and every year I felt as if the teachers genuinely cared about me and my success. When education really became serious it high school it was obvious how superior WHS was to neighboring schools. Now, a college freshman, I am more than prepared for college. I have been complimented by professors on my writing skills and they have said that clearly my high school prepared me for college level writing. I actually find college less stressful due to all the preparation. It was a lot of hard work at the time but clearly WHS paid off.
