West Shore Junior/Senior High School Reviews

258 reviews
All Categories
West Shore is an academically rigorous and rewarding experience, with a vibrant student body. The small student body creates a tight-knit community with strong bonds and traditions. The classes can be rather intense, but if you crave a good challenge, West Shore will provide. Besides, you will never have to go through those challenges alone, as the students are generally incredibly supportive of each other academically. The school is competitive and stressful, but also entirely manageable.

West Shore is proportionally more Asian and mixed than the local population, and less black.

It would be false to say the teachers at West Shore are what make the academics great. The students, who are generally smart, dedicated, and driven, are what make the academics. That being said, I can only think of one teacher I truly hated, and can name at least a dozen who made my experience better. Most care deeply for their students.

We don't have many sports, don't come here for them.

I'm a senior who's been at West Shore since seventh grade, and I'm not ready to leave. If you're looking for a strong academic experience, then this is the school for you. However, if you're looking to play football, you're going to have to look elsewhere. Our football team may be undefeated, but that's only because it doesn't exist.
The student body can be extremely academically competitive but they also encourage each other to perform at the best of their ability as much as they can. It's also very rare to find a student who's unwilling to help you with a homework assignment that you don't yet understand.
As for bullying, it's uncommon here at West Shore and we take pride in that. From what I've heard, there hasn't been any kind of physical fight at West Shore in a very long time.
Students tend to form strong (professional) relationships with their teachers throughout the years and I've even known of many teachers who kept in touch with a few students after they graduated
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed and cherish my experience at West Shore Jr./Sr. High School. The teachers were generally supportive and seemed to genuinely care about the success and wellbeing of their individual students. There was never a moment in my time at West Shore that I felt I could not reach out to a teacher for extra help or questions. The rigor of the curriculum challenged me to levels I never thought I would be able to reach and helped me develop vital life skills such as organization, self discipline, focus, and independence. Thus, I feel West Shore did a wonderful job at making me feel prepared for college, which is what the school aims to do. In addition to academics, I have made some of the most amazing friends and formed unforgettable memories that I can only thank West Shore for giving me.
