Western High School Reviews
Western a great place to work
I have been at western for over 30 years and have seen the many changes. For the most part they have been very positive. Its a great place to teach, coach and interact with the staff. Our demographics have changed and we are getting hurt by students leaving for Kennedy/Cypress/Oxford, but we remain strong!! GO BIG BLUE!
This is the sad truth... Western kid's are like the heart of our nation. Surrounding schools like Kennedy and their million dollar budget for band, Cypress not far behind opperating athletic programs no wear near Westerns consistant "running in the red" with an actual 6 figure surplus year after year. The cold hard truth... None of them have 3 alumni playing currently in the NFL!!! None of them have superstar athaletes like Andy Messersmith!!! None of them will ever have the greatest golfer that ever lived!!!! Tiger Woods. With all those near billions in famous alumni, how so that we have to borrow helmets from other schools and can barely cover our athletics budget. Something is'nt right?????????????????
