I am a current student at Western High School. The teachers are exceptional. They don't get too angry unless a bad student is in the class. They will try to remove that student to give other students a better learning environment. Yes, there are a lot of fighting, but as long as you stay away from those people and be friends with the right people it's a good school. There are over 100 clubs which include community service and cultural clubs including Filipino,Polynesian,Romanian, and other cultural clubs. We also spread diversity in the school and promote anti-bullying. Everyone in the school feels equal.
now im a regular african american student of western highscool dont get straight A's but dont get F's i dont want to say its a good school but i dont want to say it aint bad i dont think parents can say anything that has to do with the inside of the school like its safe and the people there are good kids, yes the teachers excelent i say but dont think there still isnt gang banding and fighting involved if i got to choose i would go to cypress high. like i said teachers excellent many students not but its my opinion any one that goes there would say that but if you stay with the right people you should be okay.
I love western it is so diverse and the environment is so friendly students and teachers are so welcoming (well except ms. garcia) many students are involved in school activities and are willing to help anyone in need
The administration, faculty and staff of WHS are exceptional. As a member of the very active and involve WHS Alumni Association, I get a chance to interact with students from over fifty years of classes at WHS. There were some very lean periods at the school during the 80's and mid 90's, but on a whole, the school has a history of providing a quality educational and social experience for any children who put the effort into their own role as a student. The school embraces the diversity of its students, as well as its rich heritage. International Week and the Memorial Day recognition of former students who have sacrificed their lives in service of our country are just examples of the Pioneer Spirit which the administration promotes and encourages from all the students. Parents also get out of the school what they put into it. Get involved instead of complaining.
My son is a freshman this year at Western. He had gone to Christian school his whole life. We have not encountered any of the problems we anticipating in a public school. His teachers and sports coaches have been wonderful. He's made a lot of new friends from all walks of life. We did encounter one problem on his schedule when his sport changed, but it was quickly resolved with a couple phone calls to his counselor. I have not met the new principal but I have seen him frequently watching the different sporting events. So my overall experience of Western High School has been a very positive one.
