Westside High School Reviews

My experience at Westside High has been a real eye-opener. From the school's online demographics, to my real life experiences, I've learned the true weight that self-teaching holds in my life. My mothers always told me that the world isn't just Bibb County, and I couldn't agree more. The school overall isn't bad, but everyone here doesn't understand the full weight of knowledge. Most of the students settle on being mediocre, and doing the bare minimum. As a student who prides themselves in doing the absolute best, I wish my peers would feel the same. The best thing that Westside could do now is revamp the learning style, and push students to be the abasolute very best they can be.

Being a student at Westside for the Fall 2015 to the Spring 2019 semesters I had an overall okay experience. The faculty and staff at this school are very dedicated to having students be prepared to their future careers and goals, and they push each and every student to do their best. There is technology based education along with face to face instruction which is a nice touch to having a more technological based society. Being a student here I was able to take the courses necessary to graduate and all students are given the opportunity to enroll in Dual Enrollment in order to take a course for college credit. There are also opportunities available for students to be in AP classes in which they can take the AP exam at the end of the course for an opportunity to get college credit for that class if they reach the required score. Westside High School is overall a well developed school with dedicated faculty and staff and I am proud to have graduated from this school.
I love my school. Once a Seminole, always a Seminole. I have attended Westside for all four years, although i did go to another high school for about 4 months one year, it was nothing like being at Westside. The makes you feel like a family. Every family argues, which is normal but at the end of the day we still have each others back. Thats is Westside, my family.
