The staff and teachers are very helpful. They want us to strive in are academics. They are kind and care about helping their students succeed. They push students every day to be better and to grasp concepts more fully. I do not appreciate the coddling of students through various policies and such. The need to write passes for students to leave the classroom for any reason is absurd. It hassles teachers from educating the remaining students simply if a student needs to go to the bathroom. The teachers are generally nice and have good communication with the students. There a lot of classes you can chose from for your electives. The school also has great sports programs like basketball, football and tennis. The school also has a lot of clubs to offer to students. The school does have an issue with drug use and I have heard of students vaping and chewing tobacco in the restrooms. There's also on average a fight between students every other week.
West Fargo High School has been a pretty good school for the most part. We have a great option for academics and other clubs and organizations. Most of the teachers are great also and are there if you need them, regarding if it is about school work or just personal problems you can always count on them. The only things not so great about the school is some of the kids. Most are disrespectful and just plan old rude. I understand most school have these kids and can’t really do much about it but that has been the main thing that has been disappointing during my 4 years at the school. Overall I believe that West Fargo is average high school.
