Zumwalt West provides students with the ability to become involved while learning. The school provides excellent environment for learning with some amazing teachers. The fine arts programs here let students be able to express themselves in their own ways. School spirit is strong here at West (Go Jaguars!). Although there are some awesome teachers, some are not as effective. Finding your group of people is not hard as long as you don't get into the wrong crowd. The school provides safety for students to learn. Overall, Zumwalt West is an amazing school that leads to success in the future!

Most students are very kind and caring. The teachers and staff genuinely care about their students. It's like a second family. There are some things that could be improved, such as depression rates among students, and overall communication, but I would absolutely recommend West High to anyone!
Fort Zumwalt West high is an amazing school! It is a very safe environment and everyone that works there is very nice! I will be graduating this year, and I am very sad that I will not go here anymore. Everyone is so kind and they try and make sure people are as taken care of as they can. Overall a very great school and I’m glad to be able to say that I went to such an amazing school!
