West Academy Alternative School Reviews

1 review
My overall experience at this school was amazing. My favorite experience was getting to know each of my teachers on a personal level. They each made sure I felt great about myself and believed in me. What makes this school unique is the fact that there won't be twenty kids in one class. It has a small student to teacher ratio, which is great for students who need more of that one-on-one experience in classes. If I could choose this school again, and do my high school all over again, I would have started here in ninth grade. I loved the teachers and staff members along with the principal.
