Westview High School Reviews

Westview has incredible academics, facilities, band, athletics, newspaper, and school spirit. The campus is a little bare and colorless, but the staff and student body do a good job bringing joy and life to campus if you participate in the activities they put on frequently. There is a huge stigma of there being far too much academic pressure placed on students by faculty and peers, but honestly you get out what you put in. If you don't want to be in the elitist circle of Harvard pursuits, you definitely won't feel that depressing and dangerous pressure. I will say that it's split about half and half white kids and Asian kids, so there isn't much diversity, and the counselors really suck in the realm of college prep and general wellbeing counseling. But everyone these days had their own college counselor and therapist.

The teachers were super nice and many students connected with them. They really care about their students. Attending Westview made me feel confident and prepared for college since it's on the quarter system similar to the UC's. There are tons of clubs for everything, many of which give great volunteer opportunities. The athletics are pretty average overall. I played field hockey and softball. Field hockey was really good, but the softball program declined throughout my four years.
The quality of education at this school are fantastic. The staff does a good job of preparing students for college. The sports teams are mostly decent. My only problem with the school (this is from personal experience, this may not apply to all who attend this school) is that I have witnessed countless instances of teachers showing very evident personal preference towards certain students to the point that poor behavior is almost rewarded.
