West Seneca East Senior High School Reviews

I love west seneca east. I am currently a senior at the school and my overall experience has been so amazing! Everyone that goes here including teachers are absolutely amazing. Our sports teams may not be the best but being an athlete it has made me realize how grateful I am for the relationships I have made. The academics are not comparable, if I have any trouble in my classes all of my teachers are willing to help to improve my knowledge. Even if it isn’t for the same class, every teacher in the school is willing to help. Some people think the rules in the school are strict but I feel that the principles do this to keep us as safe as possible. There is no place I would rather be, and I am not excited to leave it.

I've genuinely found success and happiness during my four years at West Seneca East. It is certainly a wonderful community and has a family element to it, between the teachers, students, and rest of staff. The music program is excellent, having an Orchestra, Band, Chamber Chorus, Jazz Band, Drama Club, and more. Academically, the Academy Program is a rare opportunity for high school students to jumpstart their careers in healthcare, engineering, business, art, or digital media. I believe that the Life Science Academy has enriched my high school experience with specialized classes, internships, etc. as I continue my path to become a Physician Assistant. The teachers are a key factor in everyone's success in the school, as they are caring, supportive, understanding, motivating, helpful, and compassionate.
Most of the teachers I have had in the past three years are some of the wisest people I've ever known, and many of them are wonderful educators. However, the budget that the school receives is put to sports, and not to more important things such as the shoddy heating system, and the classes themselves. For example, band, both choruses, orchestra, and the drama department are given a collective $800 to share, and many teachers are forced to pay for their supplies out of pocket. I am also not a fan of how much they pay their bus drivers, finding that West Seneca Central School District pays their drivers some of the worst hourly wages in the state.
My favorite attributes would have to be the teachers, as I've learned much more from them than just their subject they are hired to teach. I have known some for 7+ years, which creates long lasting relationships, and some have taught me things like what happens in high school doesn't necessarily define your entire future.
