Smithtown High School West is a really good high school, particularly due to some particularly incredible teachers. If not for those teachers, the school would be average at best with a majority of teachers being unexceptional but the really great ones do an incredible job of preparing students for college and life in general. The school also caters to a variety of interests effectively from a very strong business program to science and art. One remarkable way in which the school caters to students interests is through its association with Wilson Tech, in which High School West Students can spend half of there day at Wilson Tech and learn a particular trade. I did not personally participate in the Wilson Tech program, but I have heard good things about it.

This school helped me feel prepared for college. The counselors really help you with the application process and give you step by step instructions and deadlines to ensure that you are staying on track. While it is not the most diverse school, it is still one of the best districts on the island and is very safe. It has a good academic program and the teachers are all very qualified and there to engage students in learning. The teachers that teach AP classes take their position very seriously and show students what to expect when taking college level courses while preparing them for the AP exam.
My experience at West began in the 10th grade when I moved from the Caribbean islands, Trinidad and Tobago. It was a very different experience. First of, the environment always felt safe, and the security staff always made sure of it. All of my teachers continuously pushed me to strive throughout their classes all year. I made many friends of which I hope I will be friends with our entire lives. I am currently about to head into my senior year and I'm hoping however, that our school offers more activities and better lounge areas for the students. And maybe also better food ;)
