Greeley West High School Reviews

Overall, the atmosphere and the multiple cultures lead way for an amazing experience that can prepare anyone for the life outside of high school. The multitude of academic programs including AVID and the International Baccalaureate Program give students the opportunity to excel and prepare for their college experience. This is with the help of hardworking passionate teachers. One of the only problems with the overall experience of Greeley West is the fact that the building itself is old and is home to asbestos. This can be a scary environment when the ceilings leak during big rain storms. There is also a lack of bathroom facilities that students can use.
Review Greeley West High School
I had an amazing experience at Greeley West High School. I have attended the school for three years, this year being my fourth and it has been a phenomenal experience with rigours courses and great faculty. I have been apart of the AVID Program at Greeley West for four years now and we have been a AVID demonstration school, in which there are only 200 across the world/nation. The standards consist of high rigor and are very difficult to meet, but I gladly took part and made a difference, as I believe everyone ca make a difference. The School has an excellent sports program along with theatre program and is an IB School. There are many to consider for this award but my hopes and dreams are to. make a positive impact on every person that I meet and to give back to the community in exchange for the good that it has given me over the years.
Greeley West High School has a lot of great teachers (some bad ones too of course), is very diverse, has great school spirit, and can be a fun environment. Some downsides are the quality of the building (over 50 years old and has major asbestos problems), a few gang and drug problems (lots of fights throughout a school year), and very poor in supplies. Being in District 6 means very low funding which causes tons of problems and loss of certain opportunities. Overall it wasn't a terrible high school to go to, but I didn't have the best high school experience. Probably would have been better to have gone to a different high school in Greeley.
