Westville has a population of about a little over 1,000 people... Most of the actual population is of prisoners in the Westville Correctional Facility.

Westville's one school has about enough room for 500 students k-12th grade.

Most move, most come and go, and in reality half dont even live in Westville. Half of the students in the school come from LaPorte, Michigan City, Kingsford Heights, and etc. Plenty of kids have the capability to do better than the effort they put out. They honestly just don't care.

That's why the scores are low. I've watched a boy get all F's until someone actually got in his head. Then, when he actually tried, he was getting A's and B's. Great community and most people who have gone there say it's better than other schools they've been to. I'm pretty sure this won't be seen or what not, but I voiced my opinion.
