Westview High School excells in all aspects. It has the highest ranking API index of all the high schools within the Poway Unified School District and is one of the top academically in the county. It was noted as one of the top school in the US by Time Magazine in 2007. The school has 500 students in AP Calculus Course which is more than all the others in the district combined. In 2006-07, Westview received the State of California's highest recognition for having the best ENS - Excercise and Nutrition Course in the state. It was featured on a National TV News broadcast. In 2007, Westview seniors received scholarships that exceeded all the PUSD high schools combined. Its a great school with good kids in a safe bedroom community located just 7 miles to the Pacific Ocean...Del Mar Beach and Torrey Pines Golf Course. The real estate prices are reasonable, too!

They finally did away with pass the standards; pass the class which was really causing students to slack off. The quality of education is good and will prepare the kids for college. The extracurricular activities are positive and parents seem very involved in this community. The school is still small enough for most kids to get involved in sports and for the parents to know one another via sports and extracurricular activities. We have a new Principal this year so not sure on the leadership there yet.

There are mostly great teachers but also some filler ones who are either inexperienced or too jaded (like waiting to retire), I have seen extremes in both categories.

They have a greta deal of funding which allows them to have many clubs, sports, and afterschool activites. Thier band is one of the best, as is thier football team. Thier test scores are exceptional as are most of thier teachers. This school was built on some of the bets teachers in the district which makes it the bets school in the district. Its probably one of the safest schools also, there are practically no fights and every1 is disciplines accordingly to thier actions.

For a new school, they have a lot of things that are working well: teacher quality & commitment, great extracurriculars, sports programs. Other things do not work well: Standards encourage slacking, teachers test like this is Grad school, and the Special Ed /RSP programs are next to non-existent. Overall, the block / academy concept is a good one but there are still lots of kinks to work out, even after 3 years.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
