West Montgomery High School Reviews

West Montgomery has been an overall joyride. For me, I believe that it has provided everything that I've needed in order to get to where I am going. The teachers and all other faculty were more helpful than I can explain. Being that I had the chance to enter in the AVID program my sophomore year, I've began to take my education a lot more serious than i did my freshman year. On top of all that, our sports teams are phenomenal! Overall, West Montgomery High School has been one crazy ride and I really hate that I'll be leaving soon.

I'm currently a student at West Montgomery, I'm a senior to be specific. I've been attending West Montgomery for 4 years, and I've witnessed some things and some things have happened to me. Being at West, I've learned that you can not trust anyone, it's better if you don't have friends, and I've learned that the teachers really do not care. The things that I'd like to see change are the tasteless food, the careless teachers, the endless disrespect from student to student and student to teacher, and for the current assistant principal to be resigned. West Montgomery is truly an alright school, if I had the choice to go to another high school in the state then I'd probably leave. Truly, I guess West Montgomery won't change due to it closing down soon for a new high school to be built.
What I like about west Montgomery high school is that its in a small town. We have under 500 students that attend. However, with that we don't have many teachers is we have very big classes. I would like to change that we need more teacher and that would make less people in classes and might help some kids learn better.
