If there was zero star rating, I would rate this school a zero. What they call special education is really a dumping ground for any and every student who is a problem. They lump actual students with learning disabilities with behavioral problem students. Add to this a large bulling problem, chewing ...  Read more

Many AP and Honors courses to choose from. If you take the hardest courses offered and work hard you can get into any college from Westfield High.

This school should be ashamed. I would love if this school district would stop touting the MA MCASA levels. They are NOT contributing to the success of these numbers.

I am a parent of a student and a prior student myself...when I attended, most of the teachers actually cared about the students...now my daughter comes home telling me how the topic of the class is rarely discussed and if it is it isn't for a significant amount of time before the teachers talk about ...  Read more

As a student I feel that there is too much focus on sports and very little recognition for academics. The AP courses are consistent, but Honors classes tend to vary in difficulty.
