Portsmouth West High School Reviews
While West Portsmouth is a smaller school, it is certainly welcoming. It is a school for a tight knit community that will welcome anyone to the family so long as you approach us with a good attitude. What really shines about our district is our music programs, which are some of the best in Ohio, in my opinion. Making do with little funding we are well known throughout southern Ohio for our Marching Band and Travelling Choir. We've even performed with the Irish band "We Banjo Three" on multiple occasions. All in all my school is a must for anyone who wants to have a musical experience in high school, or be welcomed by a large community of friendly faces.
What I liked about Portsmouth West was the amazing support from my teachers and administrators. They taught me so many things along the way. Such as, getting prepared for college, leadership, team effort, and so much more. Another thing that really helped me dive deep into my high school was our choir. Our music teacher Mrs. Tieman has really helped me along my journey. She and the other teachers have really made my life so much easier when coming to school.
It is great. The teachers are friendly, knowledgeable, and want to help. Portsmouth West High School is clean and presentable all the time, because of of the facility’s staff. Our sports teams are also amazing. Everyone has a great attitude and are driven hard in winning and good sportsmanship like conduct.
