My experience at Western High School was amazing! I loved the atmosphere and overall experience. It was an amazing 4 years. My younger brother will be attending this coming year. I recommend this school to anyone that likes a family environment. Everyone was always very involved and wanted to help all throughout my years of school. Western High truly prepared me for the next chapter in my life.

Western High School was nice but it definitely lacked in ALOT. All the English teachers were AMAZING! But Science (ESPECIALLY) and math teachers lacked skills to really prepare students to do well in higher level classes. I do believe these students ARE NOT prepared for the real world and the importance is only placed on grades and GPA. The school zones keep changing so there is a shift in culture from Davie (countryfolk) to Weston and Plantation (very diverse population). I think the administration NEEDS ALOT OF WORK for the student safety and facilities. There needs to be more funding in the FINE ARTS AND LESS ON SPORTS! The school needs to prove that they truly CARE for ALL their students because many students feel hopeless and unloved.
My experience at Western High School has overall been pretty decent. It is very easy to get used to and just the general structure of the school is pretty simple to figure out. The students and teachers are extremely friendly, everyone minds their own business and the environment itself is pretty calm. Guidance is incredibly helpful and will help you out as much as they possibly can for you to apply to scholarships and pre-college programs, and simply anything that you need to succeed in your future.In general, Western High School is a decent school with a friendly staff and respectful students, it certainly does lack in a few areas, but overall, my experience at this school has been nothing to complain about.
