Going to George West High School will forever be memorable for me. Here in our community and school, we are one big family. We have top of the line resources, great facilities and great teachers. We have many organizations and outstanding UIL teams which never fall short of success. I know all of my teachers on a personal level, like most of our students, which makes learning easier and more fun. We always do hands- on activities and never fall short in meeting goals. Along with that, George West High School had many friendships to offer; I will hold on to these friendships in the years to come. Academically speaking, my high school has definitely prepared me for college and I am so eager to apply what I have learned here in college next year!

It’s a small, quaint school. Everyone knows each other and gets along real well. The facility is nice and very welcoming. I enjoy my classes and the staff is very helpful and kind. There are numerous club activities available even though it is a fairy small school. I’ve always felt very safe at school. I wish there was a greater art program, but art class and one act are available and are certainly worth joining.
George West High School is known for there academics; bright, outstanding and outgoing students. Teachers set the bar extremely high in every class room and expect a lot from there students. Academics are the schools number one priority from day one. The tolerance level with the students is also set very high, you are to respect each other, school grounds, and have appropriate behavior at all times. Although the one thing the school should have more of, in my opinion is more school spirit.
