The city of Westby is not very progressive, since everyone on city board prefer the old fashioned way of Westby. The students here are very cliquey, and aren't very accepting of people who "swim against the current", if one will. Overall, the community of Westby is predominantly white, with our biggest minority actually being people who immigrated from Marshal Islands. Our teaching staff is, overall, very friendly! However, some of the staff members aren't the most talented at teaching, and our building is essentially falling apart.

My experience at Westby High School overall was very satisfying. Westby High School has endless opportunities that anyone can be involved in. I found my High School to be safe and I loved the atmosphere of knowing each and every student in the school. The staff at Westby High School was always willing to help and were great role models for me. Living in a small town comes will less course options, which sometimes was very defeating. Thankfully, there were many clubs that were not sports related to help make up for some of the missing classes in their place. Overall, I am very proud to be apart of such a great school.
Overall the teachers are great for students who may need help or are not understanding things, I have went to westby before and I think all the teachers are great and there for every student.
