I like the environment, people, and academic offerings! I love how I can be successful and the environment pushes me to succeed. The food is ok. I like the attitudes of the teachers and how they are always helpful. The school could improve on offering more medium level classes instead of easy and AP courses! The school could also push the SAT more on students!
Review Westview High School
I came into Westview as a new student my senior year-- I've had my fair share of being the new kid-- and yet when I came to Westview, I felt an overwhelming sense of belonging. Westview knows how to get results. It is ranked well, academically driven, and is super college focused. This is great, but it comes with repercussions. So many students based their self-worth on scores, to the point of depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders. I wish Westview reminded their students that school is an opportunity. It is a gateway to help explore the possibilities as an innovative and creative human, like an instrument to navigate our lives through. It is not your identity, rather it is a tool to shape your identity. It is apparent that Westview truly cares about its students, but it troubles me to see so many students forget that not having the perfect grades or scores means that they are not enough. It isn't necessarily always about education, but about learning.
There is a large variety of clubs. For academic competition, culture appreciation, arts(origami, art, anime, etc.), and volunteering(Key Club and many tutoring organizations), there are at least a couple different clubs. There is also very strong participation in many things from Band to NJROTC to Robotics; things that we are told look good on college apps. Commitment varies greatly from activity to activity and person to person; I am extremely committed to my tutoring club for example, but I can skate by barely participating in Cyber Security. The administration is very supportive of clubs, though starting a new club is sometimes a hassle since there are already so many clubs. My favorite clubs(that I'm not necessarily in) include Nerdfighters(for nerd culture appreciation), Humanities and Writing Center(tutoring), and the art clubs, which held their first annual art festival this year.
