I love attending West Monroe! It is a great place to be a student. We have great teachers who are always willing to help us and get us ready for college. The best thing about our school is how passionate and spirited our student body is. It is an indescribable feeling to be a Rebel. One of my favorite things at school is our arts program with the art classes, creative electives, choir concerts, band concerts, and the annual Spring musical. We also have a number of new and improved facilities for both academics and athletics. I am going to miss my time at West Monroe once I graduate, but I am looking forward to my future in college.

Imagine a crisp Friday night in Rebel Stadium where the student section is always cheering, the band never ceases to bring excitement, and the football team never disappoints to fuel our school pride. Picture teachers and administrators who truly care about the safety and education of our student body and will go above and beyond to ensure our wellbeing. West Monroe High School is not like any other, because the experience that you live at West Monroe is one that will stay with you for a lifetime. When I walk across that stage at graduation, I know that I will be well equipped for the future ahead of me. No matter where I go I’ll always be a West Monroe Rebel.
Its a great school to be apart of. West Monroe High School is the 4th biggest high school campus in Louisiana. West Monroe has a lot of diversity in sports and clubs. There is like a million clubs for different people of all types. Also West Monroe is very good in all of there sports.
