    Westview has an excellent enrichment program after school Westview Success. Students are learning sign language pottery sports science projects art taught by the teachers and volunteers following regular session. Our principal was awarded 2nd place in Ohio Secondary School Principal of the Year. The staff is caring supporting the students the be the best they can be. This school is in an economically challenged area and the principal and staff donate so much of their own time and money to help the students at holidays and throughout the year.

    My child attended Westview and she was well prepared for entering middle school. We loved the way the school tries to plan for the needs of each individual student.
