It's a great school. Go bucks! My only complaint is how competitive everyone is. I am taking 3 AP's this year and I still feel inferior to my classmates sometimes. Also, I'm very grateful we have air conditioning, but it's so cold I was wearing a sweater when we were released early due to scorching temperatures. While I'm freezing during my academics, during practice, girls are almost passing out because there is no a/c in the gym.

The education in the district is absurd. I honestly can say that I feel welcomed and feel like everyone is friendly for the most part. Some of the rules I do not agree with besides from the fact that I attend the school, but it does help build a level of trust and safeness with the rules we have in school. All of the teachers are patient and loving, if you put in the work they will not allow you to fail you just have to show that your care and growth mean a lot to you as a student and individual. I love it! and will gladyly send y future children ththeir at some poi nt .
I absolutely love West! The majority of teachers are always willing to help you after and before school, and will even reach out to you if they see you struggling. The administration and guidance counselors help a lot with the college admission process and always make you feel supported. A lot of discussions happen in the history & English classes which is a very fun and unique way to learn. There is a sense of community at west and everyone gets along with other students well.
