West Lafayette Community School Corporation Reviews

I really like the schools, however, they're very cliquey and competitive. I've had great experiences in lots of different clubs including serving organizations, robotics, debate, coding clubs and several sports. There truly is a place for everyone at this school and it is a great environment for most people. It's pretty competitive, but for me, that's a good thing. I also think it's a perfect size; small enough where you know most people but large enough that there's a lot of opportunities. However, it's not perfect for everyone. If you struggle academically, you may find west side to be a difficult environment as there's a lot of focus on academics. Also, most the teachers are quite ordinary, it's the students who push for a more rigorous school environment.

It's really nice, all of the other students are good mostly and the teachers are great! The teachers offer help for bullying and house problems. I feel safe and happy when I'm at school. The school is overall very clean with good food. All kids eat healthy there is a variety of foods and friendly lunch ladies.
West Lafayette offers a challenging curriculum that definitely prepares one not only for college, but also for the real world. The administrators and staff are absolutely wonderful. Most of the teachers I have had throughout all four years of high school, and two years of junior high, have genuinely influenced my life in one way or another.
