West Seneca West Senior High School Reviews

School provides a variety of specialized education routes to follow such as the BOCES and academy programs. These classes help build real life skills and should be strongly considered.

Student life is interesting, the school is accepting but cliques are obvious and at times can be limiting to less than popular individuals.

Teachers are very decent at what they teach but blatant favoritism by staff and administration means that certain individuals can get away with a variety of violations that others may be punished harshly for.

Loved doing the sports I did. Best part of high school for sure. A little under funded but still made the most of it. Most of the teachers are amazing and super helpful in many ways. The school could use an update on the interior as some of the pain is falling from the walls due to water damage. Student services was a terrible experience for me and many other students who have the same counselor. Little to no help with college or problems with school. Don’t know if its the same for others. Still loved every second of it with the amazing teachers who are the reason for so much success.
During my experience as a student at West Seneca West Senior High School for the past three and a half years, it has been some of the best days in my life. School will always be school, but when it comes to the academic success, kindness of the staff, involvement of the teachers, West Senior has made it more than just that. Most teachers are readily available to help, and if your specific teacher isn't available, others are always eager to take their place in helping you. Although the school has gone through budget cuts, it is noticeable that they strive their best to make every students high school experience prepare them for the future within the classes given to them.
