WAHS tries incredibly hard to prepare students for college, but actually ends up pushing students to dislike learning because of the workload that teachers press. "Reverse classroom" should not be a teaching method but a resource period; teachers shouldn't be paid for students to do their job. WAHS has an excellent football team and a truly passionate administrative staff, but the execution in what the administration wants to accomplish is wrong. Bullying is not online anymore! I often encountered sexist student handbook rules at my time at WAHS. The biggest example of sexism being so deeply ingrained at this school is watching male students parade the halls without a shirt at all or in a cut-off shirt, but not being able to wear spaghetti strap tops. My shoulders say absolutely nothing unprofessional about me. It is HOT outside! Why isn't it unprofessional to literally not wear a shirt?
West Allegheny was all about challenging yourself so you could be a better version of yourself the day you graduated. It was not about being smarter than someone else, being more athletic than someone else, but rather shaping you as a person to become the ultimate YOU. If anything were to change, it would have to come down to being able to communicate with teachers more. Teachers are more than just people who try to educate their students, they are your friends and are there to help you not hurt you.
