The school and the teachers are very good, but the administration is one of the stupidest in Oregon. They don't allow people to accelerate even when the students are ready and have teachers approval. and for this, i rate it only four stars.

Develops character: Neutral


- a parent
There is some amount of cheating that goes on (mostly by boys) and little is done to prevent it.

Westview offers many AP classes and many clubs. Only a handful of teachers are top-notch, and most of the teachers are mediocre and quite a few really terrible ones. It's a very big high school, and neither the teachers nor the counselors have time to know or help the students.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a parent
A handful of great teachers, 10% good teachers, 25% are average and rest are bad. There are quite a few bad teachers who teach AP classes. It's terrible. If you go to the principal he has no clue about the bad teachers. They are losing some great teachers in science and math. The principal is new and doesn't seem to know what's going on wrt to teaching.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Some teachers (only a few) are well organized, but most of the teachers don't do a good job balancing homework throughout the semester

It has options, good teachers, good curriculum, no bullying and a very nice overall environment. I came in as a freshman this year not knowing anybody coming from a small choice school in a different district.

This is a fantastic school. The teachers, and students are great and I believe is the best highschool in Oregon. It has the highest number of AP graduates and great career tracks.

This is the best school ever. It's clean, friendly, open, and has amazing teachers. I have a mouthful of positive things to say about this school, but to keep it short, I've never been to a better high school. What I like best is Westview's school spirit and athletics, but Westview also gave me some of the best teachers I've ever had in my school life.

I'm sorry to say that I do have the same good experience as many of the reviewers here, and it's probably because I have one very different factor from the average student. I suffer from aspergers syndrome; when I lost a close family member, I started having depression and trouble in school. So, what did my school do? They sent me to a well-hidden school for students with mental instability. Now, there's nothing wrong with transferring a student to a place more compatible with their special needs, but Beaverton School District's special education program receives minimal funding and patronizes its students. Students with special needs are given no chance to excel, even though they may be just as intelligent as the next student underneath their problems. Beware BSD's mental health stigma!
