I love the community at Western Michigan Christian high school. There so many ways to involve yourself in our school! Weather student council, sports, musical, please, science Olympiad, student section leader or small group leader there are so many enjoyable ways to stay involved. Are Christ centered focus really helps our students to strive! It's so crazy to see how God can push his people to work hard and to work through our trials! When we are struggling those who are part of the WMC body really step up and encourage you to resend or your focus on Christ! That we may face some hardships and go through some tough times, WMC sticks together and sticks up for one another! The love here is contagious!

WMC prepared me well for life beyond school. When I graduated I felt that I had a community of parents, teachers, and friends that would continue to support me as I went off to college and welcomed me back when I returned. The classes were reasonably difficult, challenging but not overwhelming. The best part of attending WMC though, was the amount of spiritual growth that took place over the most formative years of my life. The teachers brought the gospel into the classroom, the administrators extended grace and love and the students worshipped God through their praise and their willingness to embrace others.
I like the diversity of this school. I also like the opportunity for rigorous academic load. I do not like that this school holds sports above everything else. Sports often seem more important here than academics and worship. This school has a good academic program, and the teachers are knowledgeable. The teachers care about their students and their curriculum. Western Michigan Christian has lots of extra curricular options. There are plenty of opportunities to try lots of sports, theatre, and technical/science extracurriculars. Western Michigan Christian has a good choir program. Overall this school has a good core academics, but the small programs (foreign languages etc) need improvement.
