Westover was a really good school, I say one of the best public high schools in the Dougherty county school system to send your child too. The atmosphere is real family based, they show a lot of school pride #PatriotNation, the sports are a definite plus, and the way the teachers and counselors go out their way to prepare you for college and to push you to further your education is rather outstanding!
Review Westover High School
Westover isn't a bad school it's very repetitive. The school could be further than what it is if we as students and teachers stick to together to achieve a goal and that's to learn something that we need to know to pass state test and Westover has failed to do so! But I can say that most students at Westover are very Intelligent, Different, and Responsible . Most of us at Westover are committed to getting an education and wanting a better life.
"Westover is ALL about their academic focus." If you're doing anything to disturb that academic focus, there WILL be consequences. The consequences are not only for you but also for the whole school. They strongly urge that Westover is a safe, professional, and well organized. Fights, although there always seems to be some, are not tolerated. One small fight could cause the school to lose a pep rally. They are also strict on dress code: no ripped jeans, no crop tops, sheer clothing, sandals, etc. So, if you're one who likes to dress freely, this school isn't for you. Also, the school is predominantly black just like the city. As for the teachers, most of them do have a slight attitude but as long as you're respectful and do your work, that shouldn't be an issue. "If you're ever having problems, come see us." is a common phrase used by our principal and is pretty much how anything will get resolved. Don't be confrontational.
