What I truly enjoy about Pueblo West High school is the staff and the students. We all work together to pursue the main quote at Pueblo West that “respect is a way of life here at Pueblo West. The staff wants to make sure ever student feels safe at school and makes sure that each student can learn to their full potential at Pueblo West. On the flip side, the athletics, band program, choir programs at Pueblo West are outstanding. For any sporting event the student at Pueblo West truly come together as one to support our school. Lastly the wide range of extracurricular activities is crazy at Pueblo West. There is key club, many different language clubs, deca, NHS, yearbook, and so much more offered at Pueblo West. I am so thankful to be a part of the cyclone nation!

Pueblo West High is a great school if you are interested in academics and sports. I've been very successful in learning there. The teachers are great and very helpful! The theater department, which I am very active in, could use some more funding, though.
Pueblo West is an amazing school! The culture is amazing and the staff is even better. Teachers know what they're teaching, and they know how to help students. The school offers a multitude of AP and IB classes, and when you leave you're either leaving with college credit, or ready to take on your next challenge! The sports scene is great top to bottom, and everyone, from student to administrator, is respectful and ready to work both on the field and in the classroom. I felt very prepared for my standardized tests and know that when I get to college many of my classes will be review. There's lots of clubs and activities to get involved with, and everyone can find themselves a place.
