West Limestone High School Reviews

I have attended West Limestone High since kindergarten. It is has an excellent community that is very involved with school activities. The classes offered are extremely rigorous and fully prepare each and every student for the next step they choose to take in their future. The teachers and staff care for the students and have a personal connection with each and every one. The resources that are available allow every student to learn to the best of their ability. Throughout my years I have seen growth and change in not only West Limestone, but Limestone County in a whole to reach our full potential as a School System. The opportunities Limestone County offers to its students involving service to our community are unlike any other. My peers have been trained to be respectful and responsible, each and every one learning to be a leader in their own way. My time at West Limestone High has prepared me for my future, not only academically but also for any future endeavors that I pursue.

The school itself is okay, I would like better administrators and teachers though. I would like more availability to express ourselves responsibly. When the work is put in they work with you on taking harder classes even if your already in honors.
My experience in West Limestone was all in all pretty good. I'm not that super popular kid or the weird kid, I'm the middle and most of West's students are. We are loyal be it from southern hospitality or just being at a small school I could tell. I have made some of closest friends through West. We like all schools have our drama and our ups and downs, but typically we stick it out. Our teacher's will help you if you need it, and they seem to enjoy their job more than not. In West Limestone, just like everything else, if you put in the work you will gain the benefits.
