High School West is an amazing school district, one of the best on Long Island. It prepares students for college in a very effective manner so that life is not extremely difficult on the students. Mostly every teacher at West strives to help students become the best versions of themselves and try their hardest to help them in any possible way. High School West also excels in the arts and athletically each year. Students are friendly and open for new friendships. It is an overall great place to go to high school!

Highschool west is the best school I've ever been too. The school is extremely diverse with Race, Gender and Sexuality. And the school influences the creative of students and the arts. There's a club for everybody and everyone is extremely nice and outgoing. This school has definitely helped me grow as a person and help me discover who I am. I say that I have enjoyed my time at High School West so far!
The teachers at HSW are amazing and very supportive people! My only wish is that art was put on the same pedestal as sports, however that isn't to say that their art programs aren't great. They just could be improved upon!
