I have school choice so that is why I go to West Springfield High School but I live in Agawam. West Springfield has an overall better curriculum for student who are looking to achieve great things. I love how West Springfield High School teachers are so kind and understanding. I have not had a teacher that I did not like! The staff is all very friendly and kind. The atmosphere in the school was calm and non threatening. Everyone was kind to one another and if there was any outbursts or violence, it was taken care of in a strict manor. I have always had good grades but the teachers hat I have had have also helped me achieve earning those grades by being so great at their jobs. The honors and AP classes are great environments for students who are looking for more of a challenge academically. The sports team and extra curricular activities also offer many opportunities to the students. Overall, I love West Springfield High School and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

West Springfield High School is a great institution when it comes to the overall view. I came in as a foreigner in my sophomore year and received all the help I needed that eventually resulted in me enrolling into the best college among my peers; Georgetown University. The building is new and modern. The administration listens to the students quite well. However, there is a great misrepresentation to the foreign/non-white kids in the school when it comes to sports or the involvement of parents. However, I still see racial equality. In terms of athletics, WSHS has a huge spectrum of available sports and gives equal opportunity to all.
One of the best things about West Springfield High School was our great diversity. We had so many kids from all over the world, and we loved to embrace it. One of our best activities was our Culture night. Students and parents were invited to cook dishes of their culture and share it with one another. There was always music and dancing to cultural dances and everyone had a great time.

One of the things that I wish West Springfield High School would do less of is focus so much on sports. Sports have taken over our schools and it has caused other clubs and after school activities to die out. The only activities that are really advertised are sport games, not the upcoming drama production. It's unfair to the other kids who have worked just as hard as the athletes and get only a quarter of the credit they deserve.
