New West Charter School Reviews

New West has a friendly atmosphere and sense of community that genuinely makes attending this school pleasant. Going to this school since 6th grade, I can say that at New West, the student body remains respectful and good-natured. Everyone here is supportive and fairly understanding of one another. The small class sizes are one of the best things about this school, and it allows students to grow closer to their peers, work well with others, and most importantly, receive the extra support/help from teachers during class. The teachers are demanding but fair, the academics are engaging, and the workload is often manageable. Students are both competitive and cooperative; however, the "college-acceptance/honors-class culture" can sometimes be overwhelming for some, as a majority of the students tend to be academically competitive here. Nonetheless, that is a given for most schools. Overall, New West has been a fantastic place to grow and learn and has staffed amazing, engaging teachers.

I really love this school, and I feel that I am college ready! I am a girl who loves science, an I appreciate that they encourage girls to take advantage of all the science classes that they have including coding. I have had the privilege of winning student of the semester for the last two year in both chemistry and physics and am hoping to win a third year for environmental science.
athletics at this school are a whole world of dance where the students get graded on student choreography that they themselves choreograph, this dance program is offered to all students as PE if desired, so they can exercise and be creative at the same time. The academics are fabulous! Very happy and love the small school size and teacher student ratio
