I am currently a senior at WACS and I can honestly say I'm happy to have attended. The teachers, despite a previous review, are great and willing to help any kid who wants it. Actually, a lot of the problems in the school are students. Anyway, he building itself isn't the nicest, but the learning experience is worth it. You can tell that the school's faculty cares.

This school is horrible. The teachers are mean i've heard. My daughter comes home from school crying almost everyday! The gym teacher, Mrs. Bedwell, has her favorites. Way to much homework. The kids should have a longer lunch.

Westfield High School has provided a great educational environment for all three of my children. My youngest son is still attending this school and is enjoying all aspects of his experience. He takes full advantage of the many after school activities that are available. Two of my children are now in College. They were well prepared for college life both academically and socially. They have made comments to me about how prepared they were for the next step in their education and how many of their new friends from other schools were not! I would recommend Westfield High School. You will not be sorry!
