Greetings!
I am Peter Zhang, a high school student class of 2022 at West Side who will be a Junior in the fall. WLCSC is the best Community School Corporation that I have ever been to. The teachers and staff are very dedicated to help the students succeed and everybody works very hard to do their best in school. Thank you very much!

West Lafayette Sr High School is like a small world within the world. All the world nations, cultures, languages and people are represented here. A community of diversity like no other! It's truly the most vibrant place you can find in the Midwest. Mostly due to Purdue University, West Lafayette is a little model of a perfect world.
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.
