Westview Wolverines Black Hole

Westview Wolverines "Black Hole"

In the fall of 2002, Westview High School opened its doors after years of extensive research, community involvement, and planning for a school designed to meet the needs of a twenty-first century learner. With the main goal of building a school that did not resemble a "Factory Model", Westview was established as a learning community, determined to create an educational environment in which student connections and successes were at the heart of all decisions.

Over the last 20 years Westview has continued to evolve from its original ideas around connection and unique offerings for students. The school community is committed to developing a space of belonging for all learners on the campus. Homeroom and Wolverine Time are built into the learning schedule in order to foster authentic connection and relationship building between students and staff.

Westview High School provides students with an opportunity to participate in a vast array of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, college and career pathways, athletics, fine and performing arts, student government, and student-led clubs. Westview High School has enjoyed a great deal of success both in and out of the classroom. From CIF and State Championships in Athletics, our award winning Journalism program, State Champion NJROTC program, nationally recognized Performing Arts programs, state recognized student leadership and clubs, and especially through the success of our Advanced Placement and Special Education programs, Westview has become known as one of the premier high schools in the state of California.
