Greeley West High School Reviews

All Categories
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
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.
Greeley west high school, might be not the best school to attend. This school is not the prettiest, nor the one with highest SAT scores. This school has given be many opportunities and has open the door for the path of being success. There is something unique about here. Greeley west makes me feel that I actually belong here, this place reminds me of home. My last three years in this school, have made me realize that there is someone out there caring for you, someone that wants to see you progress by going to college and becoming someone in life. From here I also love the diversity of students. When I enter Greeley west everyone treats you good it's like if you knew them from a while ago. Lastly I love it's programs that Greeley west provides for students like AVID and IB, in here you gets close and become a family with all students. Greeley west high school is special for many reasons, nothing can replace it in me. Love Greeley West high school.
