West Ottawa High School is a Silver Medal school that provides many and varying opportunities for students in their pursuit of a successful future. The teachers made my high school experience a great one. I view the teachers as highly effective in providing opportunities for their students to succeed as well as providing the inspiration to get through the day. They truly are a dedicated bunch. Not only is the staff very supportive, but students are supportive of each other as well. In terms of being prepared for higher education, West Ottawa left me very prepared with IB, AP, dual enrollment, and online courses. There is also the opportunity to attend Careerline Tech Center which will prepare students for trade/vocational school.

I thought West Ottawa was definitely one of the better schools in West Michigan. The facilities were amazing. You will never find a basketball court as nice as this one. Although, the outdoor fields for football and soccer could be fixed. There are many clubs at WO, and you can even make your own club if you wanted. I liked being here but also, I feel like the only sports this school cares about is Boy's Basketball and Football. You don't really feel like an equal if you play one of the other sports because they only bring the student section to watch those two teams. Also, a freshman died earlier this semester and it was barely noticed because the school only cared about how the boy's basketball team was doing. It was tragic for the friends and family of this girl because the school didn't seem to care at all. West Ottawa is a great place to challenge yourself academically but if you want to be here for the social aspect, I wouldn't suggest it.
I took various AP and IB courses which helped me learn how to manage my time. It had a great atmosphere as well as many great people. I thoroughly enjoyed being educated there. There were various clubs and activities for every student to enjoy as well as good precautions when it came to the safety of the school and students. However, the only thing I would change in West Ottawa would be incorporating more diverse courses as well as a bit more clubs. They should include boxing or kickboxing in the sports category.
