I went here and I was able to be in the best part of the high school. I was in college programs and in most, in not all, clubs. There was almost no food diversity or diversity in the school since it is in the middle of farmland. I had the best experience with the teachers and each was deeply involved with each student. The few college programs were good and connected for a college credit thanks to the community college across the street. There was even an option that students could go to the community college during their senior and junior year. Other than that, there was little college readiness in the school. Getting into these college programs is hard and very limited. There is great sports teams and the athletics department is one of the best that I have seen.

I attended Mount Orab E and Mount Orab M. I then attended WBHS. Overall, it wasn't a terrible experience. I definitely recommend other schools when it comes to education. I have know numerous people who have moved out of Western and said that the educational system is more challenging at their new school. Most of the teachers are pretty cool. But some don't really care about teaching you anything. The students are very clique-like. But that's at every school. Best teacher by far at that school is Mr. Donathon. He teachers you absolutely everything you need to know. He is such a good teacher.
A majority of the teachers were very personal with the students, seeing that every need was met and any issue was taken care of, which is something I think is good about the school. Something I would like to see change is the way students treat each other. Also, teachers who are rude to students and unwilling to help them when they are having trouble with a subject should be talked to and change the way they treat the students.
