Overall, this is an above average school, for what it's working with. Located in the country with a very small student count, funding is tight but the school makes due even with that holding back. The biggest aspect in my opinion is the great teachers and faculty you can find here; there are some real gems of teachers here who can teach and care about the students they teach. Due to how small it is, it is missing out on auxiliary things like specific clubs or sports that could never be supported in an area like this. I would not hesitate recommending to this school for someone that wants their child to grow up in a smaller school system.

The teachers when I were there really and truly cared about their students for the most part, but there was not the funding there to keep people around. There were as many opportunities as they could afford to give, but it wasn't much.
I like the amount of students we had in each class (less than 30). I wish, I West Central High School would offer many more classes to take.
