Project ’79 at Westfield High School is an alternative academic program with a rigorous college prepatory curriculum. Students in the program take the same classes as "mainstream" students; the difference is in the way the courses are taught. A team of Project '79 teachers collaborate to create interdisciplinary, hands-on projects that are meaningful and relevant to the students. Due to the small class sizes, pupils also get more individualized attention. The program's goals include helping students develop a positive attitude toward learning and critical intra- and interpersonal skills.
