TEENS FOR JEANS CAMPAIGN
The Friend’s of Rachel Club at Westfield Vocational Technical High School participated in Teens for Jeans, a national campaign in partnership with Aéropostale and DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit organization for young people and social change. Our Teens for Jeans campaign ended on Friday, February 13 and our students collected over 250 pair of jeans for homeless teens. Thank you to all that donated to such a worthy cause.

NO DROP OUTS AT WVTHS FOR 2013-2014
The statewide dropout rates are on the decline, dropping to a three-decade low of 2 percent, but Westfield Vocational Technical High School went even further posting a dropout rate that was a flat 0 percent for the 2013-2014 school year. In a country where thousands of students drop out every day, it is a remarkable number. The dropout rate for Westfield Vocational has been on the decline since 2008, when its rate was 7.5 percent. From there it dropped to 2.5 percent in 2012, then 1.5 percent in 2013. WVTHS is one of three area schools touting a 0 percent dropout rate for 2013-2014.
