I’ve experienced a lot of great things at Greeley West High School over the school years. Teachers were nice and respectful to each other and also to their students ideas and opinions! Greeley West has a diverse groups of people and culture! In academic wise, teachers are supportive and care. Not only to get there job done by teaching, they care about what you learn and they look into what you’re struggling and give their time to students who need extra help. To me, attending school there is amazing.

I really enjoy the community at GWHS! There is a strong bond formed within each class students can always count on their school. Both the arts and sports are well supported at the school, and there are so many activities that everyone can always feel included. The building however, is quite old and the school is slightly overpopulated. It would be great to see GWHS get remodeled in the next coming years.
My experience with Greeley West High School has been positive throughout the four years that I have been here. The students get along well with each other and the staff care about the students who attend the school. Greeley West High School also has a very prestigious education system. Some examples that show that are the IB program, AP program, and AVID. The only thing that could improve is the school's parking lot and the school's building. The bathrooms are gross and are not taken care of, while the ceiling of the school is always leaking.
