West Sound Academy is a very comfortable environment to learn in. The teachers are generally good and administration is more than willing to work with students to problem solve when issues arise. The culture of the school is caring and open-minded. One issue that I notice at West Sound Academy is the startling lack of diversity for an International Baccalaureate school. The student body is overwhelmingly caucasian. Despite this lack in diversity, West Sound Academy does a good job encouraging exchange students to share their culture and to not merely adopt the culture of the United States but to create more of an equal trade between their own culture and the culture they are surrounded by in the Pacific Northwest.

West Sound Academy is a diverse, welcoming, and tight-knit community that also offers incredible academic opportunities through the IB program. The teachers are engaged with all students and invested in their success. The student body is cohesive and diverse, the school admits many international students each year, some even return to graduate. Though the school is too small to have any kind of sports team, it makes up for it with its Knowledge Bol teams that have gone to state many times over the last few years. Overall, the academic, social, and cultural opportunities at West Sound Academy encourage its students to be open-minded and internationally aware, as well as prepared for university, and contributing to their community as a well rounded individual.
West Sound Academy has given my daughter a huge edge in the world academically, emotionally, and intellectually. The school creates an environment of respect, kindness, academics, and good work in the world. The students at this school are hard workers and who help in the community. We were told that sometimes are kids are actually shocked when they go to college how much drug and alcohol use there is happening by teenagers because they just don't see it in their community.

The students from WSA have been accepted in top universities. Their IB work in their senior and junior year is rigorous, but the teachers make the classwork interesting and engaging. My daughter is a critical thinker and someone who strives to do well. I am truly thankful she started at WSA in 6th grade. As a parent, middle school and high school were a lot less stressful for me knowing she was surrounded by such good people and getting such an incredible education.
