Overall West Forsyth High school is a very great school, for the teachers really push students to do his or her best. The main focus of the school is sports and clubs ranging from football, to art clubs. That being said, the faculty does not always involve themselves to whats going on around the school; for example, bullying and students skipping school is something that happens more than once. However, grades are very important; thus if you ask for help teachers are more than happy to help. The advisors are also great to put a student back on track or to give them a plan for after graduation. One thing that this school should improve on is the food, for there are not many healthy options to choose from, if at all on some days! This school is best if a student wants to be prepared for a university or be encouraged to see his or her potential in school.
Review West Forsyth High School
Teachers at West Forsyth are amazing! They all have different teaching styles which keeps the students engaged throughout the school day. If students are struggling in a class they will help the student by staying extra hours before or after work. But in order for them to help students, students must speak to them before, after, or during class or emailing. At West we have some teachers straight out of college, some that have their Masters degree, or even their PhD so they are all very well knowledgeable. Grading my take awhile because of the large number of students that attend the school but we get grades back in a timely manner.
I loved attending West Forsyth! The staff is amazing and really cares about their students, and the students themselves are friendly and supportive of each other. There are so many opportunities for all students and I am proud to be a titan alumni.
