This school has a challenging student body, therefor it's vital to have great teachers and staff. Sadly, this is no longer the case. The administration is toxic, as evidenced by the hostile relationship with the Parent Organization and the high turnover rate, especially amongst good and great teachers. If investigating this school, ask this question. Who have been your previous 10 'teachers of the year' and where are they now? (as of 2015- no teachers of the year have remained). Also ask; how many principals has this school had in the past 10 years? From 2011-2016 there have been 4. No school can thrive with that kind of turnover.

The head of the Special Education Department is a fool and they have lost the best teachers in their Special Education Department. Take your special needs student elsewhere; if at all possible.

Under Principal Ward, the approach was good. This is no longer the case.

I taught at Westview, and it's an extremely positive environment for students. It has a diverse population and meets the needs of both struggling and advanced learners. As of 2014 it is considered by TEA to be one of the best middle schools in the state in terms of growth in student achievement. It also has strong programs in the arts.

Teachers can careless they don't return calls or emails, office staff are rude and kick start is over the top. I walked into the office and on my way I heard so may swear words it was amazing, I asked the office staff if they controlled the behavior of the children and she shrugged her sholders, also my daughter was to scared to eat in the cafeteria becuase of the behavior of 8th grade boys, I also complained to office and I was told aww thats a shame. The only half way good thing is the band class.

We have been pleased with Westview Middle School. Our son takes primarily pre-ap classes. Mr. Ward, principal, is in charge, positive, and shows endless energy. It is contagious and the teachers seem to feel inspired by his support and presence. The teachers we have had were strong, challenged my son, and were responsive to parent inquiry. Is it perfect...of course not...but the teachers and administration care about all students and there is a good education available there if you and your child want it.

Westview Middle School needs some improvement. It is full of teenage thugs who could careless about their academic abilities. I am currently attending the choir program and we have had about 6 different teachers in one year. New teachers should be hired. I am a A-B honer roll student but the whole school's academic ability is pretty poor. The descipline is very high but a lot of students tend to not care about the rules and just break them whether they are in front of a teacher or not. They cuss, talk back, get into fights, eat in class, etc. They dont care if they get sent to ISS, Detention, or O.C ; they keep on having a rebellious behavior. I would not recommend inrolling your child into this school. Please inroll your child into a school in a better area with children who have better mind sets and academic abilities. ; eigther way the students are very rebellious.
