West Central School District Reviews
Some of teachers are great, while others not so much. We offer plenty of clubs, but they aren't very inclusive or welcoming. The facilities are very clean and sanitary, however, we are growing and don't have enough room for a comfortable fit. The dress code is overly strict for the girls, while guys can't have saggy pants or wear muscle tees. Our school talks a lot about being against bullying; however, I have first hand experience that it depends on who's the victim and who's the offender. Honestly I have to image that we are average; excellent teachers balance out the bad and likewise in many other categories.
They have a lot to offer a small town yet still fall far behind many of the larger schools in the region. Many general required classes are offered but not many challenging courses like AP. Overall, I've loved living in Hartford and going to school here, though. The connections between students are insane because we've known each other since kindergarten and our class sizes are small. That being said, there is a good ratio of students to teachers within each classroom to ensure that everyone is getting the best education.
Nice school with good teachers who appeared to care about the quality of the education they provided. Focus on sports was high, which can be a positive for school spirit and social. Independence of school from parent involvement did allow for students to grow, but keeping parents informed regarding students caused disconnect with families who wanted to be a part of student's education.
