Senior High was a very enlightening experience in that it brought me out of the Elementary school lull and into a very exciting and busy world. Diversity is one of Senior High’s most proud accomplishments, the students here will experience a little more of the world outside of Billings, Montana. The clubs and activities are numerous, there is definitely an activity for every individual to participate in, and if there is not, the students have the opportunity to create a new club that interests them. Senior High is very adamant about preparing it’s students for college, and by offering as many AP and College level courses as possible, the students are very well through almost their entire first year of college after they graduate high school! Senior High is by no means any average school, it is quite possibly one of the most experiential high schools one can attend.

I absolutely loved the teachers! They were awesome! They were caring, informative, helpful, and encouraging! I loved playing sports such as soccer and wrestling as well! Loved the students, friends, and overall atmosphere in school all the time.
After transferring form a different Billings school, the environment is much more caring, laid back, and welcoming than west high. There is something for everyone, and the teachers actually care about the students and their performance. The deans and principals also care about so much more than just image with things like sports, and it shows in such a positive way. The teachers don’t treat students like children, and are a perfect mix of academic professionals and real people students feel safe talking to and learning from. Now as a senior I am so happy I changed schools, the freedom and trust given by this school is beyond amazing. Go Broncs!!!
