It is a decent school district, sets your child up for a well deserved future! There are plenty of opportunities for growth within the schools and your child's success is very well noticed. One thing that there is to say, a lot of the teachers are of older age and are lacking some of the social skills needed to fit into the the changing times. There have been times when lacking teachers still remain within the school district years after years due to tenured laws of the teaching arena. Overall one of the more privileged school districts of Pennsylvania but still lacking and behind the times.

Through out my 13 years I was always in the west shore school district for school, the west shore school district takes cares of all kids consider we have a little mini thrift store going on for free clothes, they always want to help and never see anyone fail. What id like to change about west shore school district would be some of the teachers most of the teacher are wonderful people but there is a good amount of teachers who only sit on their butt all day and never try to teacher kids. Another thing I’d change would be how everyone after the graduating class of 2019 has to pass the keystones, it would be so unfortunate for a classmate of mine not to pass because they can’t pass a test.
My experience with the West Shore School district was not the best. Out of my four years in attendance, I found two teachers who genuinely cared about their students and showed in everyday, even when frustrated. The students were intolerable to ideas or people different from themselves and showed it in classes, often not stopped by teachers. I also feel that I was not prepared for college. If I had not taking a college course while in high school, I would not know what to expect. For example, in college the teaches is not going to hold your hand and listen to excuses. What I think we needed was sensitivity and diversity lessons. We needed more preparation on what to expect in college classes, from different styles of writing (APA, MLA) to examples of how to take notes. I understand the school’s hands are sometimes tied on what they can teach but that something I feel that’s needed.
