Everyone wishes to attend a safety school. Where their is diversity and no judgment. West Rowan High School has provided the safeness I have always wanted from a school. I started attending West Rowan High School at age 15 and since than I have loved the school. Yes, it’s not the biggest school but the interactions we have with our teachers help us gain the knowledge we need. Our school is based on agriculture and we have many diverse students who enjoy taking agricultural classes. My high school has been a great impact in my life. These 4 years of my life helped me grow as a person. Our school has many sports, clubs, and activities to attend! I joined Cross country and Soccer which helped me overcome my shyness to public speaking and helped me communicate better with others. I attended clubs which consist of Spanish club and Crosby Scholars. Our school has many classes or activities to attend which is why I love my high school, this is where I grew up as well.

If I could rate West Rowan High School I would give it beyond five stars. This school has given not only myself, but my peers the ability to grow and discover our interests for the future. The staff is so devoted to making us all well rounded individuals from the time we walk in as a freshman's to the time we walk across the stage for graduation. We are pushed to things to the best of our ability. This school has such a positive environment for students and visitors. When you walk into the building you feel a sense of acceptance. West Rowan High School is more than just your typical High school, It is a family. Id say my overall experience with West Rowan High School is everything I could have asked for plus some!
West Rowan High School has a variety of options that truly make every student feel welcome. Personally, I fell in love with the agricultural department and have been a part of it ever since I transferred from North Rowan Middle School. I have truly been blessed with some of the kindest teachers, mentors and friends. The only thing I would change about it is the removal of seminar. I do not believe that it is a productive usage of our time. Other than that, I feel everything is running very smoothly!
