    "Westfield has a fantastic reputation which I'm not sure why. I am currently attending the high school and pretty much hate it. The workload every single teacher gives is just huge. On the weekdays I have around 3 to 4 hours of homework to do after school. On the weekends I normally have around 4 to 5 hours and it doesn't help that many of the teachers are terrible. I'm not sure why this is but it is so hard to learn anything g in half of my classes. Students feel unmotivated and bored every single day. The reason I am actually giving this a couple of stars is because of the teachers that are good. I have had the fortune to have a few very good teachers. These teachers are funny, nice, and actually good at teaching."

    "i have been going to whs for three years now and find that unless you are an AP and honor student you are pretty much neglected. The staff is unmotivated and slow to accomplish anything. The work is mostly endless hours of busy work and homework. Teachers tend to be uncaring, unhelpful, and love to give hours of homework. Guidance fails to help you with anything and you never get to take the electives you want do to over crowded classrooms. Average level students are often forced into special education cloassrooms to keep their test scores from counting and make the school look better than it is. The school system is on par with neighboring towns minus the fact that other town focus on all students not just honor students and care about all students."

    "I graduated in 07 and believe I received an education at least on par with any public or private school in northern New Jersey. I was primarily in AP and honors classes and found the level of instruction and attention to be on the same level as a number of entry-level college courses. I found the math and science programs at the school to be particularly comprehensive and supportive with extra-help frequently available during lunch, free periods, and after school. I was less satisfied with my English/writing education, though I would still rate it better than a number of my college freshman peers. Foreign language education was also excellent with great teachers and oppurtunities."

    "I am a current student here. This school is not as great as you may have heard. The Teachers are okay, but about 20% of them give us bookwork in class everyday. Health is a complete joke. Worst of all, the math system is awful. I did recently move here over the summer. First, they split Algebra 1 into 2 years. So they learn a lot more than an average algebra class, which makes it difficult to keep up. They also think that geometry is a 9th grade class, when it is a 10th grade class. So what happens when an on grade level kid moves here? He expects to take Algebra in 9th but, to his surprise, everyone has already taken it. What does he do???"

    "I am a student at the Westfield Public High School and this school offers a wide variety of opportunities. There are many different opportunities that are offered to students who do well in there four years and do well on the SATs. Students have the favorable opportunity to check out different electives that the school offers, and sample them. Classes such as cycology, anthropology, sociology, business and law, accounting and finance, journalism and many other classes of those sorts. However, lets not forget about academic classes; students will also have many different options as to what science, history, mathematical and language arts classes that they could take. The school also offers honors and advanced programs which offer 0.5 more credits towards a students GPA. (Example: A=4.0, honors A= 4.5, and so on for B, and C)"
