I've gone to Westview all four years and as a senior, I can look back and say that I've been given many opportunities to grow here. Most of the teachers are easygoing and good at what they do. There's a good amount of electives to choose from and they have good sports programs as well. This year I have really seen an effort among the staff and counselors to make sure that us seniors are aware of deadlines, scholarships, and other opportunities. I love being a Wildcat!

Westview is an academic-based school. With many AP courses as well as dual credit courses. It offers many career pathways and electives to prepare you for colleges or give you an idea of those fields. The community is very accepting and diverse and gives a feeling of warmth. Teachers taught well and gave more than their job description. Students didn't mind whatever race, religion, sexuality, or ability you had or were, the student body acted as one. Clubs and programs at the school gave students to become more involved and prepared for the future. However, the food, like all public schools, are lacking. There were many sports programs, but in the face of schools like Jesuit, there wasn't much they could have done.
At West view, I felt my differences and passions were being embraced and admired. I took classes on anthropology, and psychology and pondered theoretical questions which I usually bothered my parents with. I was able to make art. I could swim,my high school swim team made sure I had a lane after school to call home. I was an experimenter, and West view let me enjoy all of it. Coming home with the marks of school all over me made my day, paint on my clothes, chlorine soaked hair, to do lists written on my forearms, blisters on my feet and hands from track and field. Our teachers wanted us to embrace the fact that we are all different. In a smaller school, I may not have found where I belonged. At west view, I met people like me, I embraced my inner nerd and joined the school smash bros club.I made many good friends, and felt like my nerdy side was being appreciated. Thanks to West view for letting us be ourselves without shame and giving us a second place to call home.
