I am currently a student at Westmoor High School. I have attended this school for the last three years and have grown to love it. The faculty are dedicated to helping students grow and develop as not only students, but also people. However, as excellent as our teachers and staff members are, we don’t have enough resources or money for our students to have the best experiences they can in their departments. For example, our music and science departments get nearly no funding for the entire year and must rely on donations and fundraisers to maintain them. In my few years here, I’ve learned many things from these two departments and I can only imagine how many more students could develop and grow if all our departments had adequate funding as well as equal resources. Overall, Westmoor is an amazing school with incredible potential to become a place for students and others to become outstanding human beings!

My experience in Westmoor High School isn't the greatest, though not the worst, either. As i'm about to graduate in about 35 days, looking back on my 4 year journey, the school's definitely improved. Freshman year, I felt scared and alone (like most freshmans), but it was for the reason of not having any resources at all! Counselors were always busy, teachers weren't friendly, and bullying was everywhere. Although, believe it or not, the people were friendly- most of them. Now, with all the new workshops and faculty that's been added, it's not that bad anymore. One thing I'd like to see improvements on is the school spirit and their ability to help others with their mental health since not many people struggling with emotional issues know where resources are.
Westmoor is a very diverse school and is strong in academics, but there could be some improvements. For starters, the facilitates could be renovated. The theater is dusty, the lockerooms are outdated and the science labs don’t have proper equipments. There are some teachers who could care less about the students, but overall, the majority of Westmoor teachers are excellent and truly care about the students. I would say that the biggest improvement needed would be the administration and counseling department. They seem to never be around when students need help and when they are around, they are no help whatsoever.
