West Ottawa Public School District Reviews

West Ottawa did an excellent job in giving students opportunities to pursue education. The teachers are fantastic, class sizes great, food surprisingly good, and facilities in great condition. The administrative staff is very engaged with the schools, and the new high school principal did really well in engaging students. At the high school, the college advisors were immensely helpful for me in my college search and the application process. The fine arts programs are also outstanding, particularly the amazing teachers in those programs. The only wish I had was more encouragement to pursue things such as dual-enrollment, early college, etc.

One thing that I really about West Ottawa is the diversity. There is many backgrounds in the West Ottawa Community. The West Ottawa district really had some great teachers! Each and every teacher strives to prepare each and every student for college. No matter what it takes them. We also have really amazing students in the district. We come from many backgrounds and no matter what race we are, we all are united in some way.
There was great diversity noticeable in the hallways of the school, and the teachers treat every student equally- reducing favoritism and ensuring every student performs at their best. There are a variety of clubs and sports to join for any gender, sexuality, or political/religious beliefs. The school is clean and has good relaxed security to ensure students are safe in their learning environment. This school has offered a variety of opportunities for me, whether it be with electives, AP, or even IB classes (which not many other schools in my area have). They also have great study sessions after school and offer great ACT/SAT prep for juniors when that time comes. I would not trade my high school experience for anything else.
