  • Even in an off year our band ranks in the top 20 in the state.We have a wonderful music program that makes richer schools wonder how the directors do it on such a tight budget.

  • Westfield Highschool is not the worst public school in the state, but it is definitely not the best. Currently, I attending WHS as a freshman, and academically, it can be improved; however, it is a fun place to hang around.
