West Wendover High School Reviews

50 reviews

While the school is better than a lot of others, it still lacks qualities that make it exceptional. The campus is filled with about three hundred students mostly from white and Mexican decent. Like a lot of other schools, it depends on the kids who you hang out with that'll help you progress or fall behind. They are not the most mannerly students but some have utmost talent like taking State in sports or clubs. Teachers are helpful and care for the students as they hope to see them have a successful future but some have very little patience. This could be difficult for students and parents, but they are willing to stay after school or show up before school. Sports are a big deal for students that show an interest and clubs help provide students an activity to do. The lunch has improved over the past four years attending this school and the cooks very much enjoy listening to a review. Children's safety is a top priority for this school. This school does provide an educating basis.

What i like about this school is that everyone knows everyone. It can be a good thing but also a bad thing. Everyone is somehow related and that's how most friend groups begin. Being from a small town like West Wendover, not a lot of people are rude to each other. When you walk the halls, you rarely see people talking bad about others. You see the smile on their faces and like they are excited to be at school. I also like how the teachers don't have there " Favorite" students. But if they did, they never show it. Here everyone is treated the same, and i will be so sad to leave this upcoming year.
What did I like about this school? Well I liked that many teachers wanted to help you, I like that the school was tiny so it was easy to find rooms, students, teachers, etc. What I didn't like about this school was all the testing. My grade (class of 2018) were like gerbils, we tested every test before we actually made it an actual test that had to be passed. Other than that, the school has some amazing teachers and an overall amazing staff.
