Westfield Public Schools Reviews

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.
Review Westfield Public Schools
My experience in Westfield has been a combination of successful and stressful. Westfield schools are very competitive but they definitely know how to bring out the best in their students. They set a very high bar and high expectations for their staff and students and each day we continue to better ourselves for our futures. Overall I'd say that it's a tough school system both academically and mentally, but the outcome is truly worth it as I feel more then prepared to start the next chapter in my life.
I actually dropped out due to personal reasons. I later went on to take the GED and discovered that I was completely prepared. The social experience wasn't that great for me, but I'm not sure that's unusual during the high school years. In terms of academics, clearly I was given the necessary tools early on, otherwise passing the GED might've been more difficult for me. I currently have a 4.0 in college, probably thanks to the years I did complete in these schools.
