West Shore Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Academics and college readiness were amazing! Multiple Advanced Placement classes are offered as well as Dual Enrollment opportunities. Administration also takes the time to fill out the Bright Futures application with the students to make sure that they receive all of the aid that they qualify for. With that being said the food and facilities could definitely use an upgrade from their current condition. The water pipes and AC are in desperate need of repair.

Excellent teachers, competitive environment, and motivated student body. There is a reason that it is the highest performing school in the area. West Shore, Best Shore!
West Shore is a small school and is 7th grade through 12th grade. It offers a really challenging education and does a great job of getting students ready for college. I have personally taken 7 AP classes and my teachers have, for the most part, been very helpful and understanding in helping me accomplish my academic goals. The culture of the school is very unique. Since it’s small, most people know each other and you almost always can ask a peer for help in social life or academic life.
