Perhaps the best part about West Boca is the unbeliable atmosphere you find yourself in when you step in our open courtyard. Dotted with palm trees, you know you’re in a good place as you watch students of all walks of life trek to class.

With friendly teachers and a welcoming presence to every classroom, you never feel out of place among the diverse student body. The school is incredibly inclusive as well, with clubs such as Equality Club and Hispanic Club. Here, we are free to be who you are. And this is coming from a transgender Hispanic boy who has never personally experienced bullying of any form.

The school also strives to be safe. West Boca started the walk-outs in our district after the shooting that happened less than 20 minutes away at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Numerous measures are now in place now to keep us free of fear.

At West Boca, from your first day on campus to your tearful last, you always feel apart of something bigger. Go bulls!

I went here from grades 10 and 11(im a senior right now and I love it! The teachers actually teach, all the academies are amazing(especially the band portion and they all are into it and enjoy it), and guidance is willing to help if there's ever a problem weither it's personal or not. I went to Olympic Heights my freshman year and it was absolutly horrible. None of my teachers were good at their job , the school had some white liquid that fell from the ceiling and it literally made a hole on the floor, and the band kids at olympic heights could care less about band. I felt like the only one that was into it......
my experience at West Boca High School has been amazing, everyone encourage each other especially the teachers. I am a student in the medical science academy and all it did for me is wonder because I learned so much that helps me in true life events and I enjoy the activities that have been given that makes me to keep chasing my dream. The school have so many activities for others that makes everyone fits in and when it comes to school spirit majority of the school joins in, including the teachers!
