Aurora West Unified School District No. 129 Reviews
WASD 129 is a school district that is dedicated to their students and staff, yet the district doesn't go out of their way to be excellent or even very good. With that being said, the communities surrounding the schools are helpful and if there is any danger the district does have things under control.
West Aurora school district is very friendly and kind and respectful to the students, but I feel there is not enough preparation for college for the students to succeed. I found myself having to teach myself most of my school work and having to do college research on my own. On the other hand some teacher will offer to stay after school for extra help and this was very helpful to my school year.
I feel like the school is quite redundant. They always hype up the same things, and nobody gets any more interested. The students themselves aren't anything special. All the AP kids are really pretentious and the 'normal' kids are not focused on to build their academic skills. The teacher I have had are really nice and will pay attention if you are willing to work. Most the math teachers seem the most uncaring out of them all. Guidance counselors and administration does not listen carefully to student complaints and needs. Overall though, its just like any other school. I'm pretty sure socially the school is identical to other schools in surrounding districts.
