My experience at West campus high school has been very unique. The atmosphere at West Campus is very distinct than other high schools. I believe the process to get into West Campus is one of the great factors of why West Campus is different from other schools. The application includes 2 essays that must be completed on campus. As for the acceptance rate, the administrators viewed applicants within their district first before branching out to other districts. The application process alone distinguishes which students are more proactive to fill out an application in order to get into West. Also, I enjoy the format of the classes. The classes are formatted to prepare the students for college. The teachers match up the subjects they teach with the curriculum that is taught at universities such as UC Davis and California State University of Sacramento. Overall, West Campus is a high school like no other with great opportunities.

West Campus has some great aspects and some terrible ones. In my experience, being at such a small school I experienced a lot of bullying and drama. Because of this it affected my school work and social life. Along with an abundance of drama, West discourages colleges that are not 4 year UC schools. We are shown "data" trying to convince us that we will be failures at any other college. Students are not looked at as people with other talents outside of the classroom. If we fail a test most teachers just see the grade rather than what we might be facing that caused us to get the terrible grade.
As a college preparatory school, West Campus is highly competitive and challenging. West Campus has given me a great high school experience as I was exposed to amazing teachers and the school culture was one to remember. The academics are good along with the sports!
