Westfield High School is an excellent place to get an education. It will push you or your child to work extremely hard with wonderful, helpful teachers and many high caliber extracurricular programs. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that the level of difficulty can provide a great deal of unnecessary stress on the students, but, if you can handle that, you will have a fantastic experience.

I have had a wonderful experience in my four years at Westfield High School. Most of it is thanks to our wonderful principal, Dr. Derrick Nelson, who unfortunately, passed away earlier this month. His loss is felt deeply by all students, staff and parents. He was a selfless, intelligent administrator and an awesome person. I only hope future principals can follow his lead, but I feel no one can fill his shoes. He was one of a kind and I feel fortunate to have had him for as long as we did
There are endless opportunities at Westfield Highschool from academics to athletics to clubs that give back to the community. The teachers at Westfield Highschool are outstanding. They truly care about their students and go out of their way to provide their students with the tools they need to succeed. I have a teacher this year that aside from being more than willing to meet during any period of the school day holds 2 hour AP review sessions after school leading up to the AP exams. My teacher’s enthusiasm spreads to her students. The one thing I would like to see change is the facilities. The bathrooms, especially, need to be redone.
