Westview Junior/Senior High School Reviews

My experience at Westview Junior/Senior High School was very positive. The school focuses on a tight-knit community that allows for students to make connections with their teachers and their peers. The classes are challenging and stimulating, especially the advanced math, science, and English courses. Some of our sports teams are among the best in the state; our cross country team won third place in the state competition this year and our basketball team is very regionally competitive. Our music and art programs are also very good, and we continue to win awards in the yearly Scholastic art competition. All of this is because Westview teachers challenge their students to be the best they can be, and it produces students that are performing at the top of their abilities. I enjoyed my time at Westview, and made many friends that I will want to stay in contact with after graduation.

The environment is very welcoming and the students who attend have a level of respect unlike any high school in the areas. You can tell the teachers care about the success of their students and want to make sure every individual understands what is being taught, they don't just teach and dish out scores. The school has a remarkable art program that I have been blessed with the opportunity to participate in. The school also allows you to be involved in sports, art, and music, without trying to direct you towards one thing only. I would love to see the school continue to develop and grow, and not fall short in some areas due to budget cuts.
My experience at Westview Jr/Sr High School has been great. I first moved to this school my 8th grade year. I felt immediately welcomed. Everyone was very friendly and sociable. The wnviornment is very vivid and exciting. I have created great relationships with my current friends and teacher. If i could change anything it would be that we have a low diversity rate.
