I love high school. I never wanted to miss a day. I appreciate the teachers’ dedication in a public school environment. It’s not easy to meet the school district expectations with high student teacher ratios. I did well in classes because of the teachers I had and I am so grateful for that. I was lucky to participate in sports and other activities my school offers. I had so much fun while getting an education. I have enjoyed my time here, but it was unexpectedly cut short due to Covid-19. I have felt disappointment, sadness and frustration. I was mad that I could not return to school to say my goodbyes or to thank my teachers for being awesome. I have missed so many senior year experiences such as prom and graduation, but, I must keep a positive attitude while living through a pandemic. I choose to remember the great teachers and friends that have made a difference in my life. I am grateful that I am prepared for college in the fall. It’s time to make new memories!

Having recently moved into the city of Cranston, this high school has offered me a great number of opportunities, in terms of education as well as relationships with peers, teachers and administration. Very friendly and helpful! HIGHLY suggest you to use all resources they have to provide, such as clubs, sports, classes, etc, in order to make the best of your high school journey at West!
I love the welcoming community the school has, many teachers are friendly and classes are great! My experience there has been memorable.
