Looking back on my experiences with High School West, it really was a great school. The variety of classes is incredible- there was always a class for everyone and classes at different levels that allowed you to tailor your education more to you and do more than just your core subjects. There are plenty of art, business, STEM electives and other courses that allow you to study whichever topic you're actually interested in and figure out what you want to do with your future. In general the teachers were incredibly nice and I thoroughly enjoyed participating in their classes. The only issues I had with the school were scheduling issues that generally got solved given some time.
My experience at Half Hollow Hills High School West has been amazing so far. I really enjoyed my time here. there were many things that made my time here quite great, ranging from the excellent teachers who know their material and teach them in a way so that us students can learn effectively and succeed, to the availability of many clubs that students can join, and to the many course offerings that the school gives to its students, allowing us to excel in classes that we want to be in. The school itself is smaller than most other schools, which allows a more personalized learning experience. One thing I would change in the school is just the size of the school itself, as I like to be in an environment with a large student population. However the size of my school is still good enough and not disruptive to the learning experience.
