West Ottawa High School Campus Reviews

My first two years here were easier academically, I did do a few honors classes but it was easy to balance. The teachers are great! They're kind and helpful. My last 2 years I decided to do the IB programme so that was harder, but I had a lot of support from my teachers and IB classmates. Sports here were fun to do too. But while I had a positive experience, I have heard of seniors moving to other schools because WO teachers have so many students they don't know the student's name. But personally all of my teachers know my name and you'll have at least one teacher who you feel like you can share personal things with.

West Ottawa is a very diverse school, one of its many charms. Many cultures are displayed giving students the ability to forego racial injustices. Athletics are generally strong. In 2017 our boys basketball team made it to the Division 1 state championships while our boys swim and dive team won the state championship in 2019. Other extracurriculars are amazing, we have a cooking club, Gay straight alliance, lego club and so so much more. There are many opportunities to get involved at West Ottawa. The teachers are always very accommodating and understanding, yet challenging and prepare you to be college and life ready. They push you to do your best even when you become frustrated with a new topic at hand. Overall the environment is something that many people would be so lucky to experience.
