West Forsyth High School Reviews

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.
West Forsyth High School is really preparing me to be a responsible, studious college student. Many of the teachers prepare you for college classes based on the feedback they received from their previous students.I also like West because the principal , assistant principals and guidance counselors try their best to get to know every student individually and help them in any way they are able to.For example, the Assistant Principal, Mr.White, provided numerous students a way to attend the CIAA college fair.At the college fair almost all of my peers that went got accepted into at least 1 school on spot. Last but not least, my favorite part of West Forsyth is the student body. Most of us represent our school well, our slogan is "WEST is BEST" and we strive to live up to that.We are also the most spirited school in our county and we're proud of that.In conclusion I would not change anything about West Forsyth High School.
This school is super good. The teacher here make teaching in a fun way ! They never have you bored no matter what they have a fun way to teach the course. Many teacher here always offer you their help! Even if you don't needed their always offering really awesome. The campus is a really nice place, its big open space ! Walk a lot but it helps exercise. Our athletes including my self we work hard for what we have accomplished and not just is ! Everyone at the school works hard to get to where we are at right now ! We're second in the state and we are working hard to get to #1
