Overall, Western is an amazing high school. I have learned a lot both in and out of the classroom. Many of the teachers have become people I can turn to with any problem, academic or otherwise. The administration is not the best, but there are so many opportunities to get involved in the school and change that! I have loved my time here and while I hate the idea of leaving, I know I have life-long relationships and a bright future that Western has prepared me for!

What I like about Western is that we have a variety of cultures and all our classes are mixed so you will not catch just seniors in all the same classes , unless its English IV. I love the school spirit , almost everyone participates in school events like homecoming, trunk or treat and also football games. My experience with Western has been a rollercoaster , I've had my up and downs , but some of the staff has always been there and also some of the students. I could not imagine myself going to an other school beside Western. Most times I am comfortable with being at western unless we're on that rollercoaster .
This is my first year here, yet i felt very comfortable on my first day attending western! I cannot wait to continue my year here as a hornet. I am for focused here and i feel that i have more resources than my previous school & im glad i made the switch.
