Welcome to Westview!


Westview was established in August 2002 with a freshman and sophomore student body. A comprehensive, four-year secondary school, Westview operates on a “4 x 4” block schedule in which students attend three or four classes each day. Each class meets an average of 82 minutes per day. There are two 18-week terms, which are divided into four 9-week quarters. Three days each week, students attend a 15-minute homeroom period, and two days each week students may attend a 28-minute tutorial period. Upon graduation, students who enter as freshmen can earn 320 credits over four years. In order to earn credits in a class, students must first pass the State and district standards identified for the class. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors are required to carry 60 credits per year. The “4 x 4” block schedule allows Westview students to enroll in a wide array of academic and elective courses.
