Going to West Charlotte Senior High is a different type of vibe. There is such a big family vibe that takes place. Our school has been opened since 1938, in 2011 they city tried to shut the school down. Thanks to the West Charlotte National Alumni Association they helped and demanded that the school remained opened. I really love the school and majority of the people who go there. When it comes to athletics the support is really there. Its hard to explain something in words when the feeling is very indescribable!

One thing that I especially like about West Charlotte High School is the feeling that I belong there, coming to this school my sophomore years I was worried about that, I didn't really know anyone. One thing I would like to see change is, I want the school to have one on one tutoring for the students that really need it, maybe they are shy and can't speak up and things like that.
My experience at West Charlotte High School was pretty good. The teachers were a great support system for me throughout my journey. With my hard work, dedication, and their support, they helped make it possible for me to further my education to the next level. One thing I would like to see change at West Charlotte High School would be the diversity and resources. The resources were not the best, but it was enough for me to learn the material. The diversity was another issue because I did not get a chance to be exposed to different types of cultures.
