Westfield High School is a great school, I have a 10 grader that went there for 2 years and has been passing with a's and 'b's in all her classes both years . The teachers are amazing, its just that the parents are not involved or not caring, therefore the students don't care because, they know that there parents wont do anything about it. This is a great school for involved parents

2nd week I am so appalled that my grandson was roughed up by simply waving at another student say bye and see you later. The SISD police roughed him up interrogated him and almost made him miss his bus and asked what set was he in? He didn't even know what they meant. I heard awful stories and now this. It's a shame to accuse a child of being in a gang. My grandson doesn't want to go back.

My son attended Westfield this year, 9th grade. I believe that the proof is in the pudding. We stayed on my son about applying himself and keeping his circle of friends small, if any. We helped him with his homework and made sure he had everything he needed. We also checked his grades online weekly. My son passed the STARR with flying colors, exceeding average. There was one teacher who was stressed, but we just moved him and he went from failing that class to passing with the new teacher...even the final exam... passed.

I currently have three children attending Westfield High School. I want to believe in Westfield and the public school system in general. Westfield has had a very hard few years. Katrina resulted in several years of descending academic achievement and over burdened staff. Overburdened staff result in less enthusiastic and less successful classrooms. I see slow progress in the school, but still progress none the less. I believe there is a core of good educators "running uphill" to make a difference. I want the school and community to understand that pulling together we can turn the achievement curve of our future. We must put education first, education first, education first. Education is knowledge, Knowledge is power. Power is success, Success is a positive future for parenthood and careers. This starts a new cycle....Put education first....If you want the best for your kids and your community., good communities have better values to bring people with better values....a better cycle...Everyone of us make a difference, positive or negative....everyday. Which difference do you make? I think the staff of Westfield has more positive days than negative. You can help

I am a parent of a Westfield freshman and the issue I have is not with the administration but the parents. Parents are not as involved in their kids education like they used to be. I have been up to the school and hear a parent get upset with the front office because the school was asking the mom to come up there and bring an extra set up clothes for her daughter to change into, dressing inappropriately or in club gear is not for school, they are there for an education not a fashion show. Parents need not to blame the teachers nor administration because it starts at home. I don't feel that its all the responsibility of the teachers, that also starts at home. The teachers are there to educate not babysit. Maybe if the parents would pay more attention to whats going on with their children then there wouldn't be that big of an issue. Secondly, the district should start fining those parents whose kids are not in attendance like they should be and maybe that will be an eye opener as well. I am in contact with all of my kids teachers, I make it my business to be involved. Education doesn't end at school because it starts at home.

I am a staff member in Spring and a parent as well. I have my concerns about Westfield but I am confident that I would have the same concerns regardless of what school my children attend. I am a firm believer that people help those who help themselves. If a student wants to be successful at Westfield they have every opportunity to do so and I believe there are teachers who are still in the business of educating students who want to learn. It's a fact that the older the kids get the less involved the parents are. Teachers and administrators can not take on the task of educating and raising students alone. Parents must be actively involved in the process. Students should know the expectations of school even before they arrive because parents should have placed those expectations on the student. We all need to work together as a community to ensure the success of each student. Westfield is not a perfect school but it has a lot to offer if a student wants to be successful.

Even though I don't always feel safe, some of the administration is terrible, and some teachers are nut cases...I love it. The AP classes are fantastic, and every endeavor you wish to pursue will be supported by someone. You make your own education at Westfield, and if you chose to work hard the teachers will support you whole-heartedly. This student population is spirt-filled, and the Band Program is awesome. The school teaches you good life lessons, and doesn't confine you in a disillusioned bubble.

Somebody call this school here 'jungle' it's true. I'm tired seeing the boys with this ugly pants every single day, they can't barely hold their pants. The girls coming to this school just with a little bag, cell.phone, ipods, I'm just wondering what are they doing there without books, or notebooks. Look like they are going shopping. But make-up and short skirts look like so cheap and they think they look perfect. Bad education, low grades, sending e-mails to the teachers about the grades or something no response, Principal I never met, one day had a question send him e-mail until today any answer. My daughter is in that school since Feb.21, 2010 I'm so sorry about her, she is not happy in this building. Not even she is enjoying the Art class, because they don't do not much. PE is other story, he is doing anything.

From the a students perspective, much of what has been said of westfield on this site is true. Westfield can be either good or bad, but so can many things. Westfield is a school that offers a great variety of extracurriculars and AP/Honors courses. These courses help students who take them quickly outrank their non-AP/Honor counteparts- even if its only one class. So if you want your child to go to a relatively ok school and get a good ranking for college without them doing much work (students work hard, but I've seen others work even harder) then westfield is what youre looking for. Also, the school does have a racial majority, but the minorities standout and create the appearence of diversity which is nice.

I believe that Westfield can be either good or bad depending on which type of people are observed. To me, our AP, and Honor students are amazing with much talent that has been discoved quicker than most kids. They are both intelligent as well as socially accepted, unlike how sterotypes make us seem. Our extracuricular activity programs are also amazing. They all strive to be their best, may it be the sports teams, the drama club, choir and even the band. I can recall the band being Grand National Champions in 2003. On the other hand, the bad side of Westfield over takes the good kids that attend Westfield. Which evidently will lead to our bad review... ):

I have a son who is attending Westfield this year,.With him coming from another State where the School system was a disgrace,.I've found Westfield to be a charming and helpful School,.Like one parent mentioned in a previous post,.The Teacher's are there to Teach,.They are not caretakers or babysitters,.As students prepare for the next step in life,.We as parents must prepare our children with self discipline and respect for their fellow teachers and classmates at home,.We can't as parents expect our teachers to become miracle workers for us,.Overall me being a single male parent am impressed with the counselor's and staff there,.Mrs.Baker for one has been very helpful to my son and I,.She has offered and planned good strong advice for his future,.Now on the other hand I do feel that the personal within the Registars office could use some sort of humanity training,.But that's only a small portion of the puzzle,.

Parents need to get involved, I have noticed a decline in involvement. Westfield is the real world. My children that graduated got an excellent education and have prospered I now have a senior, she is also doing very well and yes I am very involved in the school.

I attended westfield for 4 years and just recently graduated and my sister graduated in 2004, my little brother is also a freshman right now. I really disliked the school because not once did i ever feel safe at that school and also because the teachers (except a handful) could really care less if you passed/failed, they only really worried about trying to keep the class 'under control'. And it doesnt stop there, the staff at the administration building is worthless especially when any type of saftey issue arise. My suggestion is do not send anyone to this school its worth the money to move or send your child to a private school

I have a son who is a senior at WHS, based on his 3 years at this school our 7th grade daughter will not attend WHS. We have put our home up for sale to move out of thei district so she does not have to attend this jungle. Since they have replace the old princlple at the school some things have changed but overall it needs a lot of work. I think teachers are constrainted by many factors from being able to teach and the most important thing is there is no parent involvement in thei school. The only time you see a parent is at a football game or basketball game. They turn out in droves to participate in these events but when it comes to the education of their kids they are AOL. No way does this school get better until the parents get involved.

Posted April 20, 2008

WHS is on the right path. Parents need to be more involved. There are great, caring teachers at this school. I tell my kids that their job is to learn and do their best at school. There wouldn't be as many gang and discipline problems if parents would know what their own kids are doing and have responsibility for them.

This school proves to students like me, that no matter what age you are, no one gives a care. Teachers, police officers, and other 'respected' officials don't give a care. Honestly, this school cares more about taking a child's CD/MP3 Player rather than the safety of their own students. On level does not receive that many benefits, you get grades if you show up, as to Honors, you receive criticism/ridicule if you are unaware of certain subjects. Most of the staff aren't helpful either, I can honestly say they'd rather be with their family at home, or doing something better. A large portion of students are in gangs, promote drug usage, who in their right mind would like to come to this school? It isn't safe, mainly biased.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
