My overall experience at West Lauderdale was great! Everyone that I graduated with was very close to one another considering the fact that we all grew up together. We stayed in school together our entire grade school career with the exception of a few who came and went. The teachers were wonderful, friendly, and always there for me when I needed them wether it was for something personal or I just needed a little extra help understanding the lesson better.

My experience at West Lauderdale High School was great. I enjoyed every year of my high school career. The administration and teachers there are great and really want to see you succeed in life. The overall environment at the school is also very good everyone is so nice and it’s a clean school. West Lauderdale High School was a great experience!
I like that most of the teachers care about you and they don’t give up on you. They give you an opportunity. Although, the staff is very strict on dress code and uniforms. Also the facilities are terrible. The buildings barely have working air condition and it’s just a very old school.
