Westview High School Reviews

Westview High School is a school which provides opprotunities to accelerate motivated students into countless pathways. However it holds the caveat which I believe holds it back from becoming the best school possible - it creates and fosters a divide between students which hold a good majority of them from taking advantage of their position.

While its AP teachers and students are motivated and ready to answer questions, comments, and general inquisitivity; the baseline, or "regular", classes along with their teachers are lacking.

However, it is in extra cirricular activities which the school creates the divide in its students. While the motivated students can find immersive and world-changing opprotunities through the school, these hidden opprotunities are simply not broadcast to a majority of students. From freshmen to senior year, the divide caused by this fosters stagnation in the "normal students" while it brandishes the students who had initiative.

Great school, and amazing teachers! I graduated a couple of years ago and thought the teachers and academics really helped push and prepare me for college. The environment felt very safe, as I was able to make life long friends and build some great relationships with the faculty there as well!
I love the diversity and how welcoming Westview is. There are always many school activities that incorporate all different kinds of backgrounds so that students can be more educated. Furthermore, Westview prepares students for college really well through their 4x4 schedule and their academics are excellent. I always feel safe at Westview and the staff are always kind. Lastly, Westview has so many great clubs and programs where everyone can feel included in whatever activity they're doing.
