My experience with West Seneca West Senior High School was satisfactory. There are many opportunities for students to get involved and express themselves. All of my teachers were great, but a few of them really went above and beyond your general expectations of an educator. Not only did they care about our understanding of the subject, but they cared about our well-being outside of the classroom as well. Overall West Senior is a great school and I am excited for my younger brother to attend in a few years!

I think my high school is as decent as it gets for a public school. There are some really great teachers there who are willing to help you and see you succeed. Although I do feel my school overly appreciates the students on sports team. Constantly letting them off the hook on certain circumstances, where if it were just a regular student they would not. I also feel that our student services staff doesn't care as much as they should, I've went to them with my own problems before feeling as though they did not care and gave me no help. Besides all of that I feel as though the students are pretty understanding of everyone, personally I've never experienced or felt that students were bullying anyone. I know it does happen sometimes but I feel as though the students at my school are above bullying and keep their comments to themselves. I believe some students are willing to help others more than some of the teachers here.
One big family! The teachers go above and beyond to make sure all the students to have the best education before they graduate. There is many different things students can get involved in from clubs to sports. The musicals are amazing to watch a lot of hard work and dedication goes into them. My time at West help shape my future and I will always remember the 4 years I was there.
