Hi,
I am looking for someone who has used the Westfield High School. We're looking to move into this lovely town but bringing our daughter (right now she goes to a small private middle school in NY) to Westfield HS is giving us a pause. The school seems huge at over 1800 students. Can someone chip in with regards to school quality, students, teachers etc? Were you concerned that your child would get lost? Any way to compare it with other good schools nearby such Gov Livingston, Chatham, New Providence?
Any insight will be helpful.
Thank you.
