All of my teachers throughout my years there were very good! They actually cared about who and what they were teaching. I also really enjoyed doing the biomedical program there, as it let me have a sneak peak into what I could do in the medical field, whilst I learn about the human body. I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other high school in this town.

West Florida High School is Pensacola's only Charter High School, which makes for a special experience for me! Students are hand-picked from honor students throughout our county; this diversity has allowed me to meet students feom everywhere! Our athletic program is just amazing; look at our gym walls we proudly display our championship posters. Of course my name is up there 3 times as a winning 4 year varsity athlete.

As for academics, my college acceptance letters speak for themselves; I have been accepted to all but one of the SEC schools! All throughout my carreer at WF, I have specialized in yearbook photo journalism and engineering, something you just cant get at a public high school in our county; I am so lucky to be at West Florida. Our new facility is currently being built and the students coming up behind me will have even greater opportunities - if that's even possible!
My experience at West Florida Tech has been amazing! They teach you work place essentials and get you ready for the work force. Depending on your academy, some of the places you get to use the tools they have taught, offer you jobs out of high school based on the work you have done. The teachers and staff treat everyone kindly and with respect. Overall I believe the school is great for all incoming freshman; it will be a great experience
