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.
The town itself is a very very nice place to live. The center is very cute and it's super fun to walk around, you will never be bored. Everything is easily accessible, from the library to the high school, it's all relatively walkable. There is little to no crime, and there is an extremely good school system. However, the pricing is extremely high, and as a student, I've always had a hard time socializing with people in Westfield and creating friendships. It's a very very cliquey town, I've lived here my entire life and I have never had a very close friend. People are snobby and tend to exclude others. Everyone's the same, and people are very quick to single others out.
