Overall, this highschool offered a great educational experience throughout my six years of attending (highschool + middle school takes 6 years.) The teachers and administration were very flexible with me and my friends' needs. If there was a problem with my scheduling or a problem with one of the school's facilities, the administration's offices were always open and the teachers were always willing to stay with me a bit after school to go over anything that I needed extra help on. The only negative point that I believe is worth mentioning would be that the internet service provided at the school was not always fast enough to support the entire school worth of users, and it was a bit difficult to complete certain activities when the internet went down. Like I said, however, my education at New Berlin West was a very positive experience.

The best memories of my life have been made here at New Berlin West. From beginning as a little 7th grader five years ago, this school and the people within have shaped me into who I am today. This school provides students with amazing opportunities, specifically with sports. I have been on the Varsity cheer team the past four years. My coaches and previous captains are the biggest role models in my life. Along with my own sports, other sports have given me the best memories. From beating our cross-town rivalry in football for the first time in 22 years, to winning the State competition with my cheer team, sporting events at NBW are hands-down my best memories here. The staff here is unmatchable. My teachers have taught me to be the best version of myself and have always had my best interest at heart. They look at us as not just students, but friends.
New Berlin West High School does a great job preparing students for post secondary success. There are many options and resources to access to help prepare for post secondary education and the workforce. I feel like this is one of the strongest points of New Berlin West as a school. An area of improvement could maybe be to offer more business classes or more classes that possibly would more closely relate to real life applications. I feel like even though there are many electives available, there aren't many real life classes if you will. Overall I feel like New Berlin West does a pretty good job of prepare students for the future.
