Portsmouth West Hish School was a wonderful school district. Due to their abundance of Advanced Placement courses, College Prep courses, and extremely caring teachers, I felt truly prepared for college; when I graduated. One thing about Portsmouth West is it's not only a school, but also a community. Students bond through many different sports; parents are encouraged to get involved with sports and academics; and with wonderful clubs - such as Key Club, Beta, and Thespian Troupe #5739 - our school volunteers, and gives back to our community.

My favorite things about my school are mostly because we are such a small school and community, only having 400 kids in our entire school, we are very close! Everyone gets along, there doesn't feel like there is an age difference between grades because we are all friends. I think that's what makes us so great with our sports and our academics, because we are driven through each other we feed off of that and strive to make ourselves and each other the best we can be.
This school is the typical high school. There is a lot of focus on those students who excel athletically and those who are involved in the more important clubs. With the amount of involvement opportunities sometimes being slim, the lack of focus on certain students seems to fall short.
