West High School Reviews

Reviewed on

I was a student at West High School from August 2004 to March 2007. The school often got a bad rap from the other schools because of low test scores and all that. Frankly, they complain too much. Most of my teachers there were very good at what they did, it's just that the students didn't want to learn. Most of them are good at teaching their subject and are also good at helping students to enjoy it.

The overall atmosphere is decent. Security guards are everywhere, so it feels pretty safe. Overall, it's just a good school.
