Westview made a world of difference for my son and our family. At Westview, faculty and staff know how to serve our son's learning style and needs and they are helping him to become successful. Other schools made promises they couldn't keep. Westview has delivered. We are all grateful and less stressed. Our son is happy going to school.

Our son started at Westview struggling in every way -- academically, socially, and physically. He is now earning all As and Bs, is involved in Student Government and plays on two sports teams. The greatest success however, is the self confidence that he has been able to develop while at Westview. Before enrolling at Westview he simply froze on exams. While he still struggles some, he is able to take exams without the overwhelming anxiety that he previously experienced. Our son will graduate next spring and will be continuing at a four year college in the fall -- far beyond our wildest dreams. Westview has taken the lost and out of place child we entrusted to their educational direction and care and returned a motivated, confident young man with a vision and dream for his future.

The Westview Schools unique program made such a huge impact on our daughters education. It supported her strengths and helped her to deal with her weaknesses in a strong and supportive environment. We as a family believed it made all the difference in who our child is today. She is a self asssured, independent student and we owe that to Westview. The staff and the program are topnotch, and they recognize each child for their individuaity,which helps them become mainstream members of society. The Westview school is a lifeline to families that realize their child is not making it in a mainstream school. We are proud to be a Westview Family.

Westview is a school for kids having difficulties in regular school. Although the kids are 'high-functioning' it still has a special-ed flavor, with classes that accommodate all levels of student. Involved staff, counselors, and activies.

This is a school which specializes in kids with ADD, learning delays, and mild emotional difficulties. It is academically rigorous and may be the right choice for some people who otherwise would not graduate. There is a great deal of parental involvement. At the time my child attended there I was extremely pleased with the academic process and the teachers. However in retrospect I realize that many of the kids who go there are somewhat traumatized for a variety of reasons, and if your child has been sheltered it may not be the right choice.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
