Westfield Intermediate fails in almost every category. Teaching quality is low, academic expectation below low, refusal to collaborate with parents, after school programs minimal. No foreign language and science is very weak.There is very little writing, no research papers, no summer reading, no summer math except a ridiculous online link to a few simple problems which is a waste of taxpayer money.

A. Academic quality is very poor. It will NOT prepare students for advanced classes in middle and beyond. B.extracurricular- below average C. Will mention in paper if on Honor Roll but they do forget to include kids. The school is obviously very unorganized and unprofessional D. Parental Involvement poor -There isn't an active push to involve parents. E. Leadership is not sincere. In my case, I dealt with incompetence on many levels. F. Teacher quality was very below average and bordering poor. This was the worst school I have observed. Fortunately, we moved into a much better school where everything is superior in comparison.
