    Great school. Great teachers. My kids attended this school and excelled all through school. This school prepared them very well for Hinsdale Central High School. They are given midterm and final exams at this school which is great for preparing them for High School - it really pays off. This is the only middle school that feeds into Hinsdale Central HS that gives midterm and final exams. This will benefit your kids greatly and give them a step up over the other kids at the high school. My kids received excellent grades in Honors and AP classes at Hinsdale Central High School so Westview Hills prepares kids very well for High School. They have great programs which challenge the kids to excel and do their best. Excellent education received here. Every bit just as good if not even better than the Clarendon Hills and Hinsdale school systems.

    I went to WHMS from 2003 to 2006 right after moving here from Belgium and I couldn't have asked for a better experience as someone who didn't even speak a word of English.

    I am currently a student at Westview and I love it here. The teachers here are fantastic. They make me want to learn more. All my 8th grade teachers have made my year even better and I don't think I would have enjoyed 6th grade half as much if it hadn't been for my 6th grade teachers. I'm so sad to be leaving this year.

    Not willing go into reserves for state shorfalls.Charges for bus service when tight budget first to be cut are the teachers but admin can get huge raises poor communication hidden agendas charges for band and clubs with justification/explanation (great teachers though)

    This is a really great school. There are a variety of after school activities you can go to such as sports. Most of the students here at Westview are kind and act as a family which makes it a really great place to go to. Our principle is very caring. You can learn a lot of you go to Westview and you can make many great friends.

    Grades k-5 are excellent in this district. Junior high has been a big disappointment.

    I'm in 8th grade right now. I'm graduating soon and I've grown to know everybody since 3rd grade in this district. It's the best school ever. All of us have good bonds with our teachers and we all love to joke around. All the people here are friendly and awesome. My grade is already crying at the fact we all have to leave eachother. Yesterday we just went to six flags and we all got close. Even the teachers. We're all upset to leave but we have to. This school is the best and I never want to leave. I wish it was a highschool to so everyone can still be together. I love this school so much and the past years I will NEVER forget here.
