Curriculum is tough and sometimes hard to understand. All chemistry teacher are horrible and tough to understand. Music classes are incredible! Sports are entertaining because of the Crimson Crazies but don’t expect a win.

I attended Lee's Summit West High School from 2013-2017. The environment was something I got used to very quickly and you can tell the school does care for its students. Although, I am friends with many people from other school districts and with the caliber that West was at, I was surprised how we were limited on our studies. I wanted to get all of my mathematics our of the way and get passed Calculus 2 but West only went up to honors Calculus 1. I had friends at the time that were already done with Calculus 1 & 2 by the time I was a senior because their math classes went by semester as opposed to West's full year math requirement. Aside from my educational gripes, West was a place where I could call home. I made friends that were involved and my entire class was one to remember. Thus, the experience was worth any sacrifice.
I have been a part of the LSR7 school district since I was in kindergarten, and have enjoyed my time every step of the way. I have never met a more nice and caring group of teachers than the ones that I am so thankful to have had. Each member on the staff is so extraordinarily kind and genuinely cares about each and everyone of us. They are in their jobs for the kids, and it really shines through in the way that they act and teach each day. I couldn't imagine having gone to another district.
