Westmont High School Reviews

Westmont high school is generally a decent school. There is a new pool that is amazing. The students are nice and welcoming. Some parts of the campus are not in great shape, though, namely the bathrooms. Many students are bad influences and abuse their circumstances while being a nuisance. These troublesome students are often not even reprimanded. With teachers, it is hit or miss. Some teachers are alright, others are terrible. For example, Westmont high has a good theatre program, but the theatre teacher often disrespects students (sometimes female students) and is extremely rude, which ruins the experience for many.

I love Westmont and all the students that go here. Regardless of what movies always say, I have never felt unsafe at my school and I have always felt welcomed by all groups of students in my classes. The problems I would have listed here are already beginning to be resolved- the drug problem is now controlled by the administration. Principal Miller has agreed to take on environmentally-friendly practices this year. However, our ASB is very grade-driven, leading to many activities to feel forced because the students organizing the events are forced into it in order to get a grade for the class. Our administration is also very friendly, but tend to have difficulties communicating with the student body (many events, like college visits, are forgotten because the students simply did not hear of it). Overall, a very good school for student community and the humanities that is obviously working hard to improve.
Although my transition into high school wasn't the smoothest (whose is?) I can confidently say that I ended high school countless good memories. Freshmen year, I branched out and took advantage of all the opportunities Westmont offered me, joining several clubs, actively participating in Homecoming activities and dedicating my time to athletics. By sophomore and junior year, I had found my friend group. Not only does Westmont offer endless opportunities, but the teaching staff is stupendous. I believe Westmont's english and history departments are the best in the district. The teachers I have had in these subject areas truly cared about my learning and my well being as they checked in when I was having a bad day and always tried to make me feel better. By senior year, the stress of junior year was over and I began the school year with the strongest friend group I had ever had. I could not have wished for a greater start to senior year and look forward to the rest of high school.
