All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I really like the school because it gives you a sense of what college will be like in terms of work and "late policy". It is also a small school so you really get to know everyone.

This school is a great school that offers so much, and I think students should take advantage of it at all times. I think this school should keep expanding because it's a great school!

The school is enjoyable because the teachers keep it challenging and keep the burden of completing assignments along with keeping grades, up to students which offers a very college like environment for students to grow in.

I love that Western Institute is always finding ways to expose my child to college experiences.

I like this school because it's small and convenient. This school has a lot of one on one with the teachers. The school isn't all perfect though the food isn't the best and they don't have a good enough amount of sports, but other than that it's a pretty good school

It gives plenty of freedom for the students to grow and become independent. Es un tiempo para crecer.

Esta escuela como cada otra escuela tiene sus defectos, pero si en verdad el estudiante le hecha muchas ganas en aprender el curr culum de los maestros los estudiantes pueden tener un futuro brilloso. Although, as a fellow student here at the Western Institute, my personal opinion for this school is for staff to connect and understand where my fellow students are coming from. Throughout the year this school tends to become more unorganized and unsettling.

Esta escuela tiene muchas oportunidades. Mucha gente nos visita, y nos cuentan de sus carreras y como llegaron aser lo son hoy en dia. Otra cosa muy buena de esta escuela, es que los estudiantes tienes su voz, y trabajan por lo que quieren. This school has many opportunities, many people come to speak with us, they tell us about their career and how they are what they are to this day. Another good thing about Wild is that students have their own voice, and they earn everything.

This school has a lot of growing to do. Unfortunately during the time my child went, things were very disorganized, understaffed, there were a lot of unkind kids and not a lot supervision or structure. Students were allowed to input and govern on too many of the school rules and events. I don't think allowing kids to help run the school is appropriate at this age. So if your child is vulnerable to bullying, needs structure and set rules or has special needs you may want to look elsewhere. The only positive things I can mention are that I think the school wants to be a great school, the humanities class is challenging, and the facility is very nice.

This school has potential to be a great school. But the administration needs to step up their game on many issues. Teachers are thought of as peers. And there are many times where there isn't supervision & incidents have occurred where a student could get sexually &/or physically assaulted. They allow non-students to participate in dances or events at the school without having the non-students parents sign them in. The curriculum in good & allows the students to do a lot of hands on.
