West Central Senior High School Reviews

West Central Senior High School is an average school amongst the others. It takes pride in its students succeeding, graduating on time, and participating in activities. What should change at West Central Senior High School is how there are fewer tutors/ after school tutors to help students with their assignments. There should be more hands-on learning for those who learn better with that method compared to visual learning.

The small size of the school would lead one to believe that each student would feel like their personal needs could easily be accommodated to by the staff. However, this is unfortunately not the case most of the time. Most teachers fail to be open to any sort of criticism and are often visually irritated when students, even collectively, say that they do not understand a certain concept in class. Rather than attempting to explain in a different manner, a handful of teachers will more likely be seen telling the students to figure it out themselves. The student/teacher interaction could be worse; a good enough portion of the staff seem as though they do try to care for their students. There is also a problem with the very, very little diversity in the student body which leads many students, including myself, to feel alienated and alone and unfortunately this is an often overlooked problem by the administration. All in all my overall academic experience has been simply bearable.
While there are some good teachers, there are other teachers who are not qualified to do their jobs. There is too much of a focus put on sports instead of the arts department. The current band director is doing a great job though. The school does not pay their faculty well enough to get the good ones to stay. I have watched a good number of faculty leave for better paying jobs.
