My four year experience at Westside High School was a great time in my life. My favorite part about the school is the family type environment. Every staff member was always willing to help any student with any situation. It really makes students feel comfortable when they know they always have someone looking out for them. The teachers always did a great job of involving all students and helping each individual learn in their own way at their own pace. I had zero complaints with Westside High School during my four years there. It is a great place to go to school!

My experience at Westside has been incredible! The teachers treat you amazing and they are so caring. They help you every chance they get! I have made some awesome friends who are more like family to me. The environment is wonderful and our school is great! Everyone has renegade spirit!
Westside High School is, in my opinion, one of the best high schools in West Virginia. Luckily, many parents and students across the county, and board members representing the state hold the same respect for Westside.
Although we have new administration, Westside is still at its top notch game. We have had some struggles getting some students to adjust, but they are now happily living and learning as a Westside High School Student. However, one minor flaw I find is the nonexistence of awards for doing well on the state tests. This may seem childish- and it is, I'll admit- but this encourages students to work harder when they see no point in testing. But that is MINOR. Our education is like no other; our teachers constantly encourage us in life and work, and quite frankly, you cannot find quality education like this easily. However, Westside has found the formula for quality.
