West Hall High School Reviews
West Hall High School is a small school built off of the sweat of hardworking and smart students who receive no recognition, unlike their sports teams that rarely participated in any elevated championship competitions. The arts, a diverse and talented department, received a total funding of $0, as our charismatic and intelligent principle believed that the football program was truly the best place to invest our tax dollars outside of their ridiculously large PTA groups that provided thousands of dollars. Academics did not fair any better than the arts, despite a rising percentage of students who dropped out or failed out, or the small IB/AP classes that were barely holding together the very seams of our school's credibility and integrity because, truly, high school is all about a bunch of mediocre 15 year olds failing to make a field goal six yards from the end zone. Go spartans.
While I have seen some moments of promise, high school was vastly underwhelming. Teachers will teach wrong material, outright admit to not knowing the lessons since they only are teaching to coach and even cases where a teacher did not show up in his class for almost a month, leaving class to a student teacher. They build buildings for the football team rather than help education, the arts or even fixing bathrooms. Programs may force students to pay for not being able to do fundraisers. Without IB and art, the education I would have received would be close to nothing. Between poor lessons, teachers who openly despise their jobs, weeks of literally doing nothing in class, and a multitude of other things that have occurred, my experience was lacking. However, there is hope with IB, AP, select teachers who do truly care and the possibilities the new principle may bring. Still, this school was the epitome of Georgia education.
The teachers and staff are amazing, they are helpful inside and outside of the classroom. I know that I have people that care about me and are willing to help me in times of need. This is important at teenage ages as I do not always have the right answers but I know that I always have people that I am able to rely on. I have made friends through clubs, sports, and the international bacculatoate program. I spent all four years of my high school career here and I do not regert it at all!
