Review West Point High School
My high school experience at West Point High School has been filled with great memories that I will never forget. Not only is the atmosphere of a small public school with small class sizes the perfect school setting, the teachers are educated in every field they teach and only want the students to learn and grow. The school community is tight-knit because of size. I will be graduating concurrently with my local community college with an Associate's Degree. By the time college comes, it can knock off 1-2 years of my classes. The fact that West Point offers students this opportunity is amazing and I am so glad that I am able to go to this school.
They have acquired high caliber teachers and music directors. Our Chorus and Band have won numerous awards. The Drama Club does a one-act play in the Fall and they've reached State Competition the last 2 years. The Spring Musical is a much loved tradition and is supported by all. SOL testing results have scored in the top percentile. West Point High School is also a "blue ribbon" school. It is a well-balanced school that is totally supportive of academia, sports, drama, band and all other extracurricular events.
