    "I moved here 7yrs ago. My son started at first grade here in Westfield and is currently in the intermediate school. I have been through some issues because it came to found out my son has an IEP. With that said, the counselors, teachers, principals, have went above and beyond to help me and my son. I have a child going into their special needs program at age 3 with autism and fragile x. I have been told they are not great teachers for my 3yr old. with severe special needs, that they are quote "off the hook." Again, you cannot just get into these schools even coming from Purdue, it is not easy and the turn over rate for teachers is very low here. -My sons math teacher is from Butler University who is using the tools she learned from there and applying them. Ex; my 5th grader is using a pen in math. Reason? She says the brain is trained to make less mistakes with a pen knowing they cannot erase, plus she knows pupils issues when can't erase. Great teaching. Amazing school system, if you show the teachers you care, they are there for you. First hand experience. I am poor, single mom and would not live here if it was not for the school system."

    "One of the best experiences my children have had. The administration and teachers are compassionate and caring. The teachers are very fair and hold high expectations for all students."

    "I had a very negative experience with this school. The teachers were mediocre and the principal seemed like he lacked substance and leadership.My child never had a bad experience with school until WIS and that's when I realized something was wrong here. I tried to express my very legitimate concerns but administration didn't care, the teacher was untruthful and borderline abusive. Academically, the entire district is inferior and grossly behind. I am a seasoned parent with experiences in many schools over the years and I have to say, there is no excuse for such low expectations, average academics and poor relations between teachers, students, administration and parents. You learn a lot about people when you see how they handle things that don't run the way they want. If they can't handle facing their problems, they will never improve."

    "I was a little surprised when I saw such poor ratings from others for WIS. I have had 3 kids go through this school, one just this year, and we have had a wonderful experience each time. The school is very welcoming and invites parental participation. It is the perfect bridge between elementary school and middle school. The principal is excellent and passionate about making WIS an inviting place to challenge each student academically while helping them to grow socially. I currently have kids at all levels in Westfield schools and honestly WIS is one of the best."

    "Wow, these reviews have been pretty harsh. We had an excellent experience at Westfield Intermediate. My son had excellents teachers, a strong prinicipal and he was definitely challenged. I have heard unfavorable comments made about a few teachers, but it appears they may have left the scene now? Not sure. As a substitute teacher, my view of these teachers was positive. I have personally witnessed them be kind and nuturing. I have seen kids, who are smart, placed with certain teachers that either they didn't like or their parents didn't like, and guess what, they are now in advanced classes. So maybe there is a reason for their placement. I know the counselors and principals spend hours trying to figure out where to place the children. Parents are encouraged to write letters at the end of 4th/5th grade expressing their opinion of the ideal learning environment for their child."
