I started school at Millard West about halfway through my freshman year, after moving into the area from out of state. At first, it was really hard to make any friends due to the fact that West can be a bit cliquey, but that is honestly every school. Overall however, I have been able to excel at this school. The students have a bunch of opportunities at their fingertips and are given the chance to take so many different classes. Most of the teachers are well educated and really care about their students. Of course, I have had one or two teachers from whom I learned next to nothing, but there are others that I wish I could have for other classes after I have gone through their class. If you plan on moving to Nebraska, definitely try to make the Millard West area your new home!

Great place. I loved millard west high school. It was always considered the "Rich Kid" School, but West definitely supersedes the assumptions. Wonderful teachers too!
This high school was by far the best high school in the nation. Literally! Millard West High School was ranked among the top high schools in America. With it's non-existent violence policies, acceptance to all, no child left behind, great teachers and supporters, security measures, and not to mention the top ranks in extracurricular activities and test scores; there is no doubt in my mind that this is the best high school in the nation. If you ever get the chance to live in the Millard District in Omaha, NE, I would highly recommend this school to anyone. It created the person I am today and got me prepared for college.
