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?

During my years at West Allegheny, I made many friends not only with the student, but with the teachers also. Many of the teachers helped and encouraged students to do their best in their studies and also,in life. West Allegheny has influenced me to work harder and better than i have ever have before. The only thing that could be changed at West Allegheny is the food. The same type of food is offered everyday at lunch and does not look appetizing. Other than the food, my high school experience at West Allegheny was very enjoyable!
I’d say that high school has been a bit of a struggle for me and this school isn’t one that has made me very happy throughout the years. I really think the school does well at providing a good source of resources but the teachers and staff I would say could be better. A lot of our office staff is hard to work with and not always the friendliest, as well as the guidance department. The guidance department definitely could use some work I feel like they are more against what you want and would rather push you to do something they’d prefer to make the school look better. I really am glad that my time at this school is dwelling to and end. I haven’t felt informed enough to continue my future the the best of my ability.
