I transferred to westmoor from Terra Nova and it wasn't exactly a big change for me except that the rallies at westmoor are after school while TN's were during school and also that westmoor is a lot warmer than TN's campus! I'm not sure why but I really dislike the fact that rallies are Afterschool instead of during school and I think it is because Westmoor prioritizes the students' education here more than anything and we can't catch a break honestly. Not all the teachers are great, I've heard that there is this one teacher who is mentally and physically cruel to his students and no one is doing anything about it :(! One of the best math teachers (there're only 2 out of like 5) who is probably retiring in 2018 and not a lot of people are happy about it :(.

I loved the teachers at Westmoor High School. The counselors were very friendly. Joining band for four years was the best choice I made in high school. Each day in band was fun and the concerts were great. I joined the Music Leadership and we took care of all the preparation for concerts. I helped the treasurer with the money and that taught me to be more responsible. Going to Anaheim for the competition was fun because we got to play complex songs that sounded amazing. Playing in band taught me about teamwork, leadership, and responsibilities. I also participated in the Westmoor's Got Talent show and won first place by playing the Chinese zither, a horizontal 23-string instrument. Academically, I took 4 Advanced Placement courses, AP Biology, AP Calculus AB, AP Statistics, and AP Economics. They helped me prepare for taking college courses and one of AP tests covered a general education college course. Overall, I had a fun and exciting experience in Westmoor.
It's a safe environment. People were nice. We had the best school rallies in the area. I had a couple of bad teachers but, most of my teachers throughout my entire stay were really good at teaching the material. Ongoing renovation. Lenient(better) administration compared to when I was a freshman. Lacking funding on resources like markers (one of my teachers was complaining about not having any black markers because school wouldn't give them funding for it. He had to use his unused colored markers which were okay but, I just find it weird that they don't have enough funding for it?). Enough AP Classes (Calc, Chem, Physics, Bio, History, Econ/Gov, Art, Psych). Hoping they have AP Computer Science though (but they don't because school wouldn't fund it, I heard from one of my teachers). Definitely some funding issues. No football team. Only basketball team was valued. Other sports were not as recognized.
