Pewamo-Westphalia Community Schools have left an positive impact on every student to graduate from there. The school district is made up from multiple surrounding communities including Pewamo and Westphalia. The reason this school district has vastly expanded in the previous 5 years is because of the positive environment and excellent academic program provided for all students. The school staff has an unwavering passion for their jobs, students, and the desire to see all students succeed. Every student feels welcome and is encouraged to give their personal best every day. This hard work and effort pays off as Pewamo-Westphalia is ranked 1068 in the United States with a student body enrollment just over 300, as of 2018. I would highly recommend Pewamo-Westphalia Community Schools to any person or family who has a passion for their education.

I like Pewamo-Westphalia because we here at PW are champion. The students, teachers and the athletes are competitive. I believe something that makes PW different from other schools is how the students challenge ourselves and others to be better. Once we reach the top we will not stop we are always told to change our personal best to reach higher and higher. Pewamo-Westphalia is my description of the perfect high school from athletics to teachers we will strive to be the best. The teachers prepare us for college and teaching how college professors would do to get us ready. Pewamo-Westphalia is in my personal opinion the best high school in Michigan.
The principle, Mr. Simmons, is really great and really passionate about making sure you feel welcome. All the staff cares about the well being of the students even more than they care about their education (which is a lot). The student body is slightly less welcoming as they mostly come from a small town with a strong sense of community, but they can be won over pretty easily with some effort.
