Loved my high school! I felt very prepared when I started college. The teachers and staff were always so kind and helpful, especially the guidance department. My guidance counselor went out of her way to accommodate my academic needs throughout my four years there. A huge part of West Essex was the clubs and of course sports; which is always essential to a college application. I am thankful to have gotten a high school education at West Essex.

I will always cherish the six years that I spent in the West Essex Regional School District. While the curriculum was challenging, the teachers were fantastic and always made sure their students understood the material. The effort required to succeed at West Essex definitely prepared me for the rigor of college. As great as the academics at West Essex were, the extracurricular activities were just as great. There was a diverse selection of activities to get involved with, from athletics to theater to robotics. As a student who was involved in educational clubs, music, and sports, I can say I benefited from the assortment of options. All of my coaches and teachers will always have a special place in my heart for the athlete, person, and student they shaped me into. I very much enjoyed my time at West Essex and I will always be grateful that I grew up in the West Essex District.
My high school experience was pretty positive. I made lots of friends, received a great education, and learned a lot about myself. West Essex has a great amount of school pride so I was able to enjoy numerous sports games, pep rallies, and spirit weeks that made the past 4 years even more enjoyable. But just like any other high school, it could be stressful and overwhelming at times. Some of the classes were hard to manage and the workload created a good level of stress. However, because I was challenged in high school, I now feel more prepared for college.
