West Side Senior High School Reviews

For the most part, I view the time I spent at West Side High School as a very positive experience. Since West Side is a smaller school, you get to know all of your classmates pretty well and you develop personal relationships with your teachers. I loved that private help from my teachers was always readily available when I needed it.
The one complaint that I have about West Side is that not all of the programs are created equal in the eyes of the administration. All money was sent to the sports programs while the arts programs were left to struggle on their own. As I'm now a music major, I would have liked to have been provided with more opportunities to my chosen field prior to entering college.

We have a pretty great school, but some of the teachers, although they are great at their jobs, don't care. We need people in our schools that care about the kids more than their salaries. We need people to care about our futures, and although they might say they do, it seems like that is one element that's missing from our school. We have some amazing teachers that really do care, one in particular that puts in several hours outside of her normal teaching time because she wants to see us succeed. I just wish there were more like her.
My experience at West Side High School has been pretty great. I had a lot of my teachers that were willing to stay after or come in early to help me get my homework done. They were patient with me even though I had lots of question that I needed to understand. They had ACT practice in the morning the whole two weeks before we took our tests. Yes, we have a ton of homework that we have to do some nights. That is the whole point of going to school and getting and education. They encourage you to do your best and to not let anybody stop you.
