West Delaware High School Reviews

60 reviews

As a recent alum, I had a pleasent experience here. The academic opportunities I was given enabled me to enter college with 29 credits. Plus my teachers were amazing. I could always count on them when I needed extra help. The extra curricular activities provided at West Delaware also made my four years memorable. I was able to participate in anything I wanted including cross country, choir, speech, student council, and so much more. I'm glad that I went to a small school that allowed it's students to be a part of multiple activities because each and every one of those extracurriculars shaped me into the person I am today. The only reason I did not give a fifth star is because I think I could have been better prepared for a college classroom. I'm still adjusting to the concept of listening to lectures for an hour and doing most of the work on my own. I think my teachers in high school did a great job of teaching me, but I wish I had been accustomed to this study style before college.

West Delaware High School is a small town high school with many opportunities. Personally, I am able to be involved in many different activities such as speech, music, or FBLA while being offered college courses as well. I would like to see a more diverse culture and more guidance as we move into life past high school.
I loved the closeness everyone has and the tremendous amount of activities to be envolved in. The high school really makes everyone equal. By being state champs in volleyball or a sad incident within the student body, each and every faculty member helps you celebrate and cope with it. Every teacher is always there to help you and gives you the respect that you give them. The academics are amazing and put you on great path for you future!
