I have been attending West Central since I was a 3rd grader. Since then, I've have made lots of memories, friends, and peer bonds that will last a lifetime. I truly feel like West Central has shaped me into who I am today by making me into a good student and hard worker. I care a lot about school and my grades, and I believe that is because of the teachers at West Central. I love watching and participating in sports at the school. I have been on the varsity softball team since I was a freshman. Trojan softball is the best! I enjoy watching all of our schools sports, but especially football and volleyball. I live for the atmosphere of those games! West central is truly a great school!

West Central is great school district. The resources we have are amazing. Our teachers are well educated, but more importantly they are compassionate. Our teachers are caring and understanding which makes school more enjoyable. I think we have the best staff! Out community is so supporting and welcoming of everyone.
I love this high school and am thankful to all of my teachers who have helped me throughout the years in preparation for college. We have lots of opportunities when it comes to education, including dual credit courses, which can be taken in place of regular classes and give you college credits. We also have several Advanced Placement classes, which are used to prepare students for the AP tests at the end of the year to help with opting out of taking a few that subject's classes in college.
