Westview is a great school! Most of the teachers really care about what they teach. There is a wide selection of AP classes as well as free dual-credit classes taught in-school by PCC certified teachers. The athletics, performing arts, and machinery departments are great as well. With any large group of teachers, though, there are bound to be bad eggs. They don't really detract from the experience, but just be prepared.

The student body is huge, so you meet new people every day. There's not really "cliques" more like friend groups because it's impossible to know everyone. Classism is a big issue, though, due to it's location near Nike/Intel. There's also a very high pressure to take a lot of AP courses. People tend to look down on someone who's "only" taking 1 AP class.

Westview is a very nice school! Great teachers that really push you. I would say that the school culture does set the academic standard very high, pretty much everybody is in at least one AP class. The students there are generally really nice though.
While Westview certainly isn't the best school in the district, I does have many good qualities, such as counselors who actually help students with any problems about college readiness, scheduling, or any concerns of the student in class. Another good quality is the diversity among the student body with multiple cultures and races coexisting at the school comfortably. However, there are always things that can be improved. For example, communication from staff to students can be a bit rocky and the formation of cliques is still present at Westview, although less extreme as other schools.
