Westview High School Reviews

Westview is a very highly competitive high school with mostly upper-middle class Asian and white students. With its four-by-four schedule and many AP classes, it is clearly geared towards college readiness and higher education. The teachers that teach AP's are of much higher quality than in regular classes, in general. Most students here concentrate on AP Exams and extracurriculars, all for the sake of college applications. If you are looking for a school that will put pressure on you to study hard and to get ready for college, this is the place to go!
Review Westview High School
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!
I am absolutely in love with Westview High School. There is so much opportunity for growth and personal development its almost overwhelming. There are countless clubs, tons of AP courses, and boundless extracurricular activities available. Everyone will find their own little niche within this school. For instance, I play beach volleyball and Westview recently put in 3 sand courts for our high school "DUBS" beach volleyball program. This high school opens doors for people and is incredible not just in academics, but all around.
