West Linn High School has been a good place to go to school, the students are nice and all the teachers want is for you to succeed but you have to work for it of course. It's a nice environment and you have time to walk to your classes, even though the lack of parking can be annoying sometimes. There's a lot of clubs to join and you can also make your own club if you can't find one you like. The sports are awesome and they're so much fun to go to! There's a lot of nice teachers and there's a ton of opportunities for help if you do end up needing it. There's so many activities to do here so it's never really boring. Everyone is overall nice even if it doesn't seem like it , you just need to talk to them.

West Linn High School has some of the best teachers I've worked with. All of the science teachers have had prior work experience in their respective fields, and every teacher is committed to the success of their students.

There are all sorts of clubs and activities that anyone can take part in. We have everything from an Ultimate Frisbee team to a Pokemon Club. West Linn High School truly has something for everybody.

If I could change one thing about West Linn High School, it would be the schedule. The school only has six class periods, which doesn't leave much room for electives. The majority of students in performing arts end up having to take an early wellness class to fill out their graduation requirements, which isn't doable for everybody and presents barriers to partaking in these kinds of classes.
I attended West Linn High School for my junior and senior year. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at West Linn. The campus was phenomenal, the facilities were top notch, the teachers were very kind and helpful. The scenery and nature around the school created a beautiful atmosphere and the students were extremely welcoming. Of course with like any high school you will have the jocks and "popular kids", who more than anything think they run the school and that was very evident here as many and I mean many of the students that go here a privileged and stuck up, although that did not detract from my experience at West Linn, I developed my group and friends and never interacted really with those stuck up students. Overall a excellent school with great academics and very exceptional athletics.
