I really enjoy the school overall! I love the teacher and staff, they really care about students. One down side about the school is the segregation that still occurs sometimes between races.

This is truly a school that gets you prepared for college; name demonstrates for itself. The teachers make sure to give students vigorous courses to make sure they are prepared for the vigorous courses that are set for indicators in college!
My name is Arianna Collins and I am currently a Westinghouse senior. My favorite thing about my school the campus it is very spacious and beautiful with lots of tall windows allowing lots of natural light to seep in. It is definitely a calm and beautiful space to learn and work in. My least favorite thing about Westinghouse is it's disciplinary rules. I never get in trouble much, but from observing I feel as if the discipline policies could have some adjustments. It would be more effective to analyze the why of students' action than just simply issuing punishments.
