Love this school. Wouldn't want my children to go anywhere else! The teachers are excellent who know all of the students and work to make each one do their best. I love the fact that my children can graduate high school with college credits and help them get a head start.
Great school!!! All around great leadership!!!! Great parents and well organized. Great sports and parent involvement.
i love going to westville the classes are smaller so it helps with a more one on one approach and there really isnt major clicks or groups it seems like everybody has the ability to be everybody elses friend but since it is such a small school, it seems like rumors fly around faster than the truth
Westville School is all about what you make it and how you get involved. There are a lot of opportunities, but you can't wait for them to come to you. Most of the teachers are great, there are a select few that think they run the place because of the teachers union. But most of them care about the kids. Yes, Westville has had better Principals than who they currently have, but the parents need to stay involved and don't take no for an answer. But it is like that everywhere. Through all of the adversity, my child was a very sucessful student, as were many others in her class. Many of them went on to further their educations and will make a difference society, because they were given the attention in a small school and their parents participated with them.
Westville school is a wonderful school. I have a son that is a senior and in all sports and a sophomore daughter who as well is in all sports. As for boys sports coming 1st, thats false in my eyes. My daughter is totally supported in every way by teachers, principal and athletic directer. The ones who dont agree are maybe the ones who don't ever do anything as far as school activities,and for the ones who are picked on, i know the staff act on any complaint that kids bring to them. Quit putting a great school down, if you don't like the school, don't come to sporting events or anything.
Going to a Westville basketball game is like a scene from the movie 'Hoosiers'-small town values and all heart. Let's hope that the Indiana legislature keeps quality small town schools like Westville and the Porter County Schools going.
Westville is a great school for being small. I don't know how the faculty is now but 5 years ago I enjoyed almost every moment of it. Being small it is hard to offer more classes, and it's not the school's fault.
First of all Westville is a great school. The teachers and the rest of the staff are both caring and friendly. All of the people posting complaints about this school are complaining because their kids constantly break the rules and don't want to deal with the consequences. Great parents you are, I mean you can't even spell in the complaints you posted. When disciplinary actions need to be taken, they are done so in a professional matter. Teachers take the time to help us students with school work, and they help us deal with problems in other areas of our lives. I would never leave Westville without a fight. Granted, Westville could offer more classes, but we are a small school in a small town and are dealing great with what we have.
I had 4 children graduate from westville,and 2grandchildern.I still have1 granddaughter there.I always spent lots of time there.The school is great!
Westville school lacks alot in education and in authority. The kids run the school, the principal is a joke. Mr. Yates this year could not even guarantee my childs safety in the school, what kind of principal is that. Kids are teased on a daily basis and nothing is ever done with the students as far a discipline. They preach 0 tollerence but in fact westville schools are not 0 tollerence. It's who you are and how much money you have. They have alot of teenagers that have kids already and are having more, what do they actually teach these kids...Nothing...As you can tell i can't stand the school. Westville school is a big joke, i guess they have to get there money some how. A big fat 0 for Westville school!
I have attended Westville since first grade. I used to love the school, but the overwhelming feeling of apathy I get from every official, from pincipal to guidance couselor, is distressing. It seems like no one cares anymore. WHS is a victim of racism and sexism and no on is bothering to do anything about it. All the money goes to basketball, and hardly any to any other sport. When kids are bullied, they're told to 'deal with it.' It's a very negative environment at times. The academia is a slipping, we are below state averages for every test score, for attendance, for graduation- it's ridiculous. WHS used to be a top school, but it certainly needs to clean up its act.
Westville was a great school....I loved it with all my heart!! I made some of the best memories there...everyone was friends with everyone. When I went the students were pretty good with each other---- the kids that were involved with the school had no problems! I wouldnt trade those days for anything!!
I am a grad of 1996. While I was attending I was teased all day every day. The school was still in one hall at the time and teachers did nothing to stop it. You can't tell me that they did not hear it. I think at the time they did not pay that much attention to the students and what was going on under their noses. In defence of the teachers, I did enjoy the one on one instruction. I would have like more class diversity. My husband went to a large school in a large city, he can't remember any of his teachers names but I on the can remember all of my teachers.
I graduated from Westville in 2002 and am currently a senior at Purdue, West Lafayette. My days at Westville were wonderful! The teachers cared about me and treated me like an individual, something you won't find at larger schools. Westville, was a great school and though the courses it offered were not AP, it provided me the opportunity to go to PNC and because of that I can graduate in 4 years with a double major and honors. My accomplishment are a reflection of the faculty of WHS, who helped me to become what I am today. I say Westville isn't perfect but still, its a great place to learn!
Westville's basketball team is unstoppable. I am a huge indiana high school basketball fan and i am riding the tigers to the class a state finals!!! go westville.
I think Westville is a wonderful school. I give them 2 thumbs up. They have great teachers. I will never forget my 6th grade teacher Mr. Marshall. He has had so many other job opprotunitys, it's not even funny. He is also a highschool and middleschool basketball coach. Westville is wonderful!
Currently a student at westville and I do agree that we need more classes and/or sports. I think football would be a good addition to westville. I do however feel that the class size is just right. I've been in Westville from K-10 so far. I plan to graduate here and the kids in my grade are all like family to me.
Westville is a great school. The smaller class sizes give students more interaction with the teachers. However, being in college now I do think that Westville lacks class options. With a growing population in Westville, they need to add more classes, especially AP courses.
I think that Westville is a good system. I moved my children, from Kankakee Valley High School and they are doing far more better up here than there. The teachers and the counselors are great people. I think children in smaller schools get better educations, than in bigger one. Way to go Westville you have this parents support.
Currently a student at Westville and I give this school a big thumbs down. The only courses offered are ones that will get you your required credits and get you out. Many of the teachers don't even bother teaching.
