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.

Prepares you very well to be college and career ready. I was in the metals and manufacturing class at West Ottawa High School which opened my eyes to welding. I now absolutely love welding and I am pursuing a degree in Welding Engineering at Ferris State University. West Ottawa High School also has a great school culture where the teachers and students are very friendly and helpful. They have lots of clubs to participate in and they have a fantastic sports program. Personally, I would ten out of ten recommend this High School to anyone who is considering attending here.
The thing I liked most about West Ottawa High School was the size of the school and how diverse we were. White/caucasian wasn't even the dominant race at our school which was pretty cool. Also, the size of the school was enjoyable because with 2,000 plus students it's easier to get to know more people. The thing I didn't like about West Ottawa was the number of kids who made poor decisions. Many of the students would have vapes or would smoke weed and that is totally unacceptable. I wish that this would have been different because it sucks to see so many people that are addicted, especially when it is your friends.
