Overall the school system is very good to excellent. Teachers and staff at West Genesee are friendly, helpful and passionate about the pupils. The school district offers a lot extra help if needed and has clubs for the students to be involved in if they want to be. It's clean, well maintained and pretty safe. The sports teams and coaches are very good and have a fairly successful season year to year. We've had a few bumps in the road with our transportation department in 2019 and also our administration department. Hopefully, all the issues have been resolved for our last year at the high school. I believe all schools have good years and bad!

I have had a great experience at West genesee. Great teachers and staff with a great building. The down side to West Genesee is that people are mean to each other and lots of vandalism. They’re fights daily and Juuling in the bathrooms. There is also a weed problem in this school but I don’t get into any of this, so high school experience has been great!
Teachers were very nice and supportive. The activities were good. Great guidance councilors. There were just a lot of rude students there and people vape and do drugs in the bathrooms so they closed a lot of them. I have a hard time finding an open bathroom and an often late to class. Also we have no homecoming dance!
