West Ottawa Public School District Reviews

6 reviews
All Categories
I loved the diversity of the school, which gave me so many opportunities to learn about different cultures from my friends. I also was so blessed to have so many chances to take AP level courses, and have a curriculum that challenged me and helped me prepare for college. I would not be as successful as I am today without the help of my teachers at West Ottawa high school. I would have liked to see more extracurriculars, that would have helped me make more friends, and get more experience outside of school work. There were always so many athletic teams to join, but no other clubs that would have nurtured my growing identity.

West Ottawa High School is the greatest place for students to go. It encourages a safe atmosphere and the staff is really encouraging and friendly to the students. The school has a lot of great opportunities like the IB Diploma, tons of Advanced Placement courses, and the Tech Center, just to name a few of them. Their music programs are one of the best in the state along with their athletics. This is a really great school and I would suggest going here if it is possible.
I think West Ottawa is a very good school. I started my freshman year and I have learned so much and I have experienced so many new things compared to my old school. There is so much diversity, so I am surrounded by many different people and I learn so many new things. I enjoy being exposed to the numerous things West Ottawa offers and has at the school. West Ottawa makes sure that everyone is fitting in and that we are all treating each other with respect. I love how united the school is and how much we care about others. West Ottawa is not only caring towards our school and our district but the districts that surround us. I just hope as years pass, we can help out even more than we already do because it looks great for us and what we do.
