West Lutheran High School Reviews

If you are considering WLHS for your student, here are some pros/cons:

PROS:

If your student is struggling in a bigger school, WLHS might be the place for you since the class sizes are so small.

It is a Christian school, so religion is a part of the curriculum.

CONS:

Newer, less qualified teachers are being hired as older teachers retire; thus, the quality of education is decreasing and the students suffer as a result.

WLHS is geared more toward the WELS organization members than non-members.

Bullying is a big problem at the school. If the one bullying is a WELS member, forget about any action being taken. Teachers/administration won’t address it because they are part of the problem. Cliques form quickly and students are left out, causing low self-esteem, confidence issues.

DO NOT send your child to this school if they love/excel in sports. Gifted athletes are held back and not able to play at their full potential. There is a lot of bullying by coaches.

My son graduated with a 4.0 due to the fact that he had wonderful relationships with all of his teachers. The faculty truly cares for each student on a personal level and strives for each student to reach their full potential. The PSEO and AP courses, along with the educational and personal discipline, readied him for college.
The many extra curricular activities a student can be involved in, and actually play a vital role, is not limited to just one activity. West tries to accommodate a student's multiple interests without penalty of having to choose one over another.
The environment at West Lutheran is one of a nurturing family. No bullies or power cliques. Honesty and respect between faculty and students teaches how to relate with one another, no matter the age, grade or position.
A wonderful school and an excellent investment in my child's eduction and readiness for the future.
West Lutheran has a family environment and we think that is one of the greatest strengths. Details like having the various grade levels having lockers all mixed together fosters the upper and lower classes to know one another quicker and better. That makes such a difference showing in how well they interact in extra-curricular activities like bands, sports, mock trial, the traveling choir, and many more. The students' close camaraderie is evident. The teachers really know each student and can give more individual guidance to each. They truly care and are part of the "family", too. As parents, we value the West welcoming atmosphere and high standards of academics.

We're happy to have all our children being educated with the same morals and values we have in our own family so that learning is consistent throughout their teen years, both at home AND at during the school day. It can't get any better to have their education centered around's God's word and wisdom for their lives.
