Westview Highschool could use much improvement. It has been fine in the past years, but has recently gone downhill. At the beginning of the school year, they started a new schedule, which has caused many problems. There are only 2 lunches that are half an hour long each. There aren't enough tales for all the students, and not enough time to wait in the long lines and eat as well. The classes are only less than an hour long with the new schedule, limiting what students are able to do in classes that often required the whole 2 hours, like culinary, photography, science labs, and wellness. Students are also unable to spend as much time getting help from their teachers since they must be teaching until the bell in order to get enough information into one class period. Along with all the schedule problems, is Westview's unwillingness to change. Suggestions made by students and parents alike are dismissed without a second thought. If the staff of Westview hopes to make this school the best it can be, they need to stop ignoring these and show that they value the opinions of those who attend, or whose children attend the school.
My school is very up and down which is right for a school. People have their good and bad days we are all human. Not all the teachers are helpful but through out my expiernce at westview high school I've learned a lot. This school has three amazing teachers that should be regonized Mr. Erekson , Ms.Neel , and also Mr. Conner. All three of these teachers are not only helpful with school but also with anything going on they are there to talk when you need it and help very much when need help in school they do the best they can they are the reason I'm graduating westview this year. Overall I like westview for how much spirt we have at this school my senior class has so much spirt and i hope that the following years have as much as we do. Yes westview has some faults like they care more about dress code then you being in class and they care so much about your ID but those are required even when you grown up in a professinol envirment. I love this school mostly for everything I've learned not just school wise but also people wise. I'm glad to be leaving though.
I want to say how much my fianc and I enjoyed the football game last Friday night (10/4). We are new to the area and we love school-boy sports. After trying another school a few weeks ago, we thought our school games were over. The language was terrible and there was no support of the team. Westview was such a wonderful experience! We sat with so many kids, dressed up in the school colors, faces painted, supporting each other and the team. No foul language. No "F" word. No "N" word, and because we are senior citizens, we got in free!! This school is doing a good job!! Thanks to everyone, especially the young people for such a great time....GO KNIGHTS!!
The school has provided excellent opportunities and counceling geared toward my daughter's gifted needs and desires for leadership opportunities. The diving coach is top notch. My child feels challenged and we appreciated it. The principal, Dr. Michelle Wilson, is extraordinary and has exceeded my expectations. She intends to raise the grade of the school and is taking steps to make it happen soon.
This school is great. It has one of the highest math scores in all of arizona. the teachers and staff are caring. There are maybe 4 fights a year with over 2400 kids attending. The electives are great *wood shop, piano) I would recommend to any parent.
So far this school has been an excellent school they have a wonderful resource program and their testing is par none. I think they could do a little more improvement on their website for parent communication but other than that I am fairly pleased.
when i was a student, i loved all the teachers and staff. everyone was friendly and i was always happy to wake up and go to school. All my teachers explained the work so well, and i always got my Homework done. When i moved, i had to switch schools, i realy miss Westview =(
yeah im in claass right now and this school is always fun, theres always something to do!
I come to west view it's a preet sicknin school in a good way.Everybody gets along alright n there arent many fights.Some of the teachers are really cool by finding awesome ways to teach.
As the class of 2009 Vice-president, I can honestly say that this schools academics, are top notch, and has caring teachers. The sports teams are outstanding, having at least one team place in their district meets, per season. I would Highly recommend this school to all who with to gain a higher education for their child/student.
As a Junior I have too say I would not want too attend any other school I have two great years here and I am anticipating the next two. They have great activities such as BAnd, Sports, Clubs, and ROTC so I feel welcomed and more involved I also feel a since of peace everytime I step on the campus so I feel safe.Thanks Westview!
I too have had a bad experience with the disiplinary staff. Hearsay is the truth and your child is guilty until proven innocent. Once she has your child on her radar, anything that comes up will be your childs fault.
My son is in good hands at WVHS. The teachers, counselors, and administrators are caring and keep me informed of my child's progress. Meet the Teacher Night was excellent. ROTC members helped us find our way around. Now a bonfire is going on. What a novel idea! I am so pleased and proud my son attends WVHS! He is receiving an excellent education.
I have two children attending Westview, a junior and a sophomore. I whole heartily recommend Westview to anyone considering it. My children are from a traditional school and I find that the quality of the AP and advanced classes matches what they were getting at the traditional school where everyone is treated as if they were gifted. They have two hour blocks of teaching for each subject and that really enhances the lessons taught. Also, a mandatory 20 minutes (SSR) has been added to every class for free reading. I have talked with parents whose children are also in high school and I feel that mine are getting a better education and experience than those at other schools. Get your kids involved in after school programs!
the school has great programs, that help students achieve success in their studies. Westview is a great high school and is a very bright star in a dull union's universe.
I was currently a student at westview in the 9th grade and I moved. I can honestly say I would do anything to go back to westview there are alot of nice people to make friends with and the teachers are awesome I know they care. I recommend to anyone
great school teachers care about us the student and the staff is just great!!!!
As a former student of Westview I thought that the school was an excellent place to transition from the grade school era to young adulthood and I honestly think that the staff at Westview was excellent and seemed to care about every student they had, and would always try to help anybody who needed help. I would recommend Westview over any other local high school
I loved the AP program, JROTC, and Band. I don't think my high school experience could have been any better anywhere else.
