Overall Westfield is a fantastic place to live. It has beautiful houses ranging from low to high values giving everyone an opportunity to live here. The downtown is in the middle of town allowing it to be accessible to everyone. It has a variety of clothing stores, restaurants and speciality places. In addition to the social life, Westfield has an amazing public school system, which attracts many. The town is also very safe with its local police station located in downtown. On top of that, it is very clean and beautiful with its many parks.

As a resident of Westfield, I always praise the warmth of this community. I had an incredible high school experience, with a strong curriculum and patient teachers. It's a beautiful town with many opportunities for shopping and activities. As a college student, I'm not able to afford to live here on my own. The best part of this town- the community. It's an incredible friendly town, and safety has never been an issue. As a high school and college student, there are many opportunities to find part time or even full time jobs. there are even more opportunities to volunteer and find relevant internships. Overall, 4/5 stars. Beautiful place to be in.
Westfield is a great town! I am a current high school student, and despite the cut throat high school, the competition has helped me grow and learn how to return from failure. I have made some of my closest friends through our after school activities. I love downtown westfield, and the proximity of my home to the high school.
