I'm an Alum from Western Heights graduated 2018. I had a very good experience mainly because I attended Western Heights Elementary schools and lived in the neighborhood surrounding Western Heights Middle and High School. I grew up with several students in that neighborhood. I was a student athlete, which also made my experience there great. My older brother graduated, played sports, and was involved in music and theater. Overall, I would say I enjoyed my time, peers and staff.

I love this school and all the teachers that work here. Great environment to learn and create relationships with. However, the academics are not so great. Classes don’t really push the students to their full potential.
The teachers will get out of their way and work with you as much as possible ! The staff is great . Our sports like cross country ,the girls have been going to state for years already . Our facilities are good especially our stadium. We’re recently working on building a science academy and a arts school as well ! I wouldn’t say our school is the best but overall we’re a pretty decent school. Things that can change is that we need bettter school food . The food isn’t very good and many students like me agree as well . We also have great JROTC Unit many students are involved in this unit and they’re always successful. Our band as well if very successful they’ve went to state And won state as well ! I would never switch schools , i know im going to be a proud graduate from western heights highschool .
