My four years at Western Alamance High School has been an experience that definately has prepared me for future educational opportunities as well as college life. With the variety of classes and extracurricular activites, it has helped me to look towards the future with a positive attitude and a willingness to prepare for life time goals. Life long friendships were forged during this experience, which I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
Review Western Alamance High School
Overall my experience at Western has been good. The staff is helpful and they all seem to want to help us succeed. I felt like I fit in with the students and faculty. Sometimes the facilities did need some attentions and sometimes the food is not very good. Overall the school is great and the athletics are great! There are so many ways to get involved!
The teachers overall are great! There are some teachers that do not meet certain expectations, but the other teachers make up for that. The teachers do their best to fill the ninety minute class time and engage the students in learning the material.
