    I attended Westview K-12 and now have my two children in the school. I would rate the school above average and know our students perform well in academics and extracurricular activities. I have only limited information on other schools but know many from other schools talk about how they would like to be apart of our school system. Westview constantly tries to hold children back one year and has for as long as I can remember. Some in the school believe helps with maturity and performance in academics. I feel it happens too much. Also if you consider Westview know that it is very 'clikish' all the way to the top. I know all schools have 'cliks' but I know it is more extreme in our school. This aside it is a quiet school and can give your child an above average education.
