West Carteret High School Reviews
West Carteret is a great school, with great students! There is always a teacher or principle to help you or just to talk to for guidance. They show appreciation in their students in many ways. For example, since i'm a senior , every Wednesday they treat the seniors to ice cream and brownies. There are various programs to get involved into the school, and every group is so welcoming. I wouldn't want to have spent 4 years anywhere else.
West Carteret is a good school when it comes to acceptance. In other schools nearby, I've come to learn that they were very judgmental and it was hard for people to be who they really were in fears of judgement and humiliation. At West there is a place for everyone. The teacher are more than happy to find time to help students with their studies, clubs are accepting of all students, and the administration is efficient in solving problems. If there are difficulties throughout the school year the administration works cooperatively with the faculty to try to improve West Carteret's system for student's benefits. Teachers are always looking for ways to make it easier for students or ways to help them be successful.
West carteret high school is a wonderful school! While it might not be the fanciest or prettiest school, it has wonderful teachers, academic opportunities, sports teams, and clubs to be a part of.
