West Perry Senior High School Reviews

Overall, my experience at West Perry was one of fair value. Although West Perry can sometimes receive harsh criticism from surrounding areas, it is not that horrible. We have teachers who truly care, average students, and guidance counselors who are willing to help. While West Perry may be lacking a new building, air conditioning, and the other commodities finer schools can offer, the major dilemma is not with the students, the teachers, or administration, but rather West Perry is in a small, rural area with few people and businesses to tax. Because of the smaller area and limited number of businesses, our school does not have the money larger districts have. West Perry may have financial problems due to lack of state funding and the rural community, it is this small community that makes West Perry special. Because it is so small, West Perry seems almost like a family full of comradery and a desire to stand together despite the flaws.

I like the technology they involve in the classroom with issued laptops and the atmosphere with high-quality personalities in teachers. They also renovated the entire building giving a more modern and stylish feel to students.
I did a project my senior year where we had to go around the school and take pictures of things and then redesign it. There was a lot of water damage, the water fountains didn't work, no air conditioning, a brick actually fell out of the wall and landed on a kid's head. There are definitely a few great teachers here, but also some not so great one's. I feel very unprepared in the math and science areas especially for college. In my opinion sports are funded too much, and the arts (music and theater included) not as much. Even though the band has won more competitions in my high school career than the football team ever won games. The no air conditioning is one of the worst problems, because it can get really hot in the beginning and end of the year. The dress code is pretty strict, but maybe girls wouldn't have to wear tank tops and short shorts if the building was a tolerable temperature.
