West Essex Regional School District Reviews

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 feel that West Essex School District provides me with plenty of opportunities for success. I feel well prepared for college, as many of my teachers have tried very hard to get me ready, especially my AP teachers. Help is offered to me whenever I need it, as many teachers are willing to sit down and take the time to go over concepts that I did not understand. It is easy to become part of the community at West Essex, since there is a large variety of clubs to join and there are so many top-level sports programs. I have seen many students graduate from my school committed to top universities for both their excellence in their sport and their academic achievements. If there was anything I would like to change about my school, it would be that I feel like my school is not very diverse, and does not give as much attention to the arts as it does sports.
I enjoyed my time at West Essex. I made a lot of friends, and was able to grow as both a student and an athlete in a safe and comfortable environment. The curriculum was hard, and teachers focus a lot on your individual success by making sure you are on task and up to date with everything. I was surrounded by friendly staff and administrators. I feel as if I was properly prepared for college and for my future as a student and a citizen. The environment at West Essex is fun, sports teams are rooted for and the atmosphere is energetic. Our pep rally and spirit weeks are a great time, and gets everyone in a good mood. I played for the lacrosse team for four years, and can say that has been one of the better experiences in my life. At West Essex, I didn't mind going to school every day knowing I was going somewhere enjoyable, comfortable, and safe.
