If I can have my other children attend WHS at the time they need to attend a high school, I will picked Westmoor for them too again.
As a student here at Westmoor High School I don't like it much. Because the counslers don't do anything they just make things worse. I am a current senior here. I also don't like how some teachers can be judgemental and racist towards students sometimes. Which isn't right.
My son is a star basketball player in the 8th grade and plan to move in that area so he can play basketball there. School seems cool but checked out their Boys JV Basketball team against Washington the other day, and they looked terrible and coach looked clueless on how to break a full court press. Son said he doesn't want to play there, Doubt I want my son to play there either. Hear academics is good tho. Have to debate with the wife. Will let my son talk my wife out of it so I am off the hook. The game was really that bad.
Teachers are good overall and most of the students are good. The only thing I don't like about Westmoor is that too many people are accepted. I can hardly walk through the hallways during passing period without getting squashed between some people.
WESTMOOR is a great school but they NEED TO MAKE A GUYS VOLLEYBALL TEAM! But also a lot of guys would try out and stuff
I love Westmoor because the people are nice, and the classes are awesome.
I love how people are really nice and smart. We work together to make everyone fit in. And we help create awareness on public issues.
i just love it so so so much. its just a great and safe school to go to. and it deserves an extra push.
What's not to like? Great students, superb staff, outstanding administration! Oh yeah, Westmoor is a California Distinguished School; only 4% of the state's schools are awarded this accolade!
As a former teacher, I have to say that this school is one of the best schools in the Bay Area. The teaching staff and administrative staff have created the perfect environment in which students can effectively learn not only subjects, but life skills. Other schools should take note of WHS' effectiveness as a distinguished school.
My two sons both went to Westmoor High (06 and 07 grads). Both are doing great in college right now (A's and high B's). Tells you something about the school I'm sure.
As a current senior at Westmoor, I take great pride to be part of this school. I am a Service Commissionar aka 'Green Hat' at Westmoor, therefore i have great insights of the staff and students that attend Westmoor. Personally, I can say that there is only a minimal amount of students at Westmoor that are soiling our 'California Distinguished School' title...and Westmoor's teachers are to be best! Several teachers that i have had, withold doctorial degrees and can legitametly be called Dr. _____. Every teacher has recently taken a paycut for our 09-10 school year, and earn incomes wherein they could recieve much more at other schools. However, I believe our teachers stay because of our respectful students and the school atmosphere. Lastly, Westmoor's future continues to get brighter with the numerous renovations that will include a new cafeteria, swimming pool, track&field, and library that are soon to be completed.
You may hear that Westmoor is great and have a lot to offer. But most of Westmoors teacher staff is lazy and really dont know how to teach. My daughter complains how most of her teachers waste time in class and have no skill in teaching at all. The teachers arent helpful at all and the counselors arent that great. They are largely in debt and they are selfish for money. Although its being remodeled, I hope their education and sports remodel also. You can find a better high school for your child.
Best for their high importance given to education,and their athletic progarams are the best in the area and also the drama teacher is a pro.
I find this school to be great overall. Good athletics and teachers. It really depends on some teachers though a rare bunch are not that great.
While I found I excelled at Westmoor, after coming to a prestigious university, I felt a little unprepared for the workload. However, I commend the teachers there greatly, especially those in the math and science departments. Our band program is wonderful, as are the sports teams and clubs.
Great teacher-student involvement. Extreme lack of quality and leadership in administration.
Westmoor has a group known as the Westmoor Service Commission, and are led by Mr. Delbon by being the 'rock of Westmoor'. They are student groups who help maintain safety on campus, and these students are often the creme of the crop of Westmoor. Many students at Westmoor have the opportunity to succeed with programs such as AVID, as well as the AP and honors program. Despite this school not being a sport powerhouse, Westmoor has made numerous appearances in sectional meets in swimming, state meets in track, and state championships in girls basketball. Daly City today as a whole is a safer community, take a tour for yourself, Westmoor has no room for fights, students are expelled or moved away.
Like most schools, Westmoor has some good and some bad teachers.It you're unlucky and get one of the bad ones, especially in a basic class like reading, you can get turned off learning. If you get a good teacher, you can get well prepared here to go on to university--if you work hard. If you get a bad teacher, complain in writing to the Superintendant of the Jefferson High School District. Telling only the counsellors may get your class changed, but it doesn't get rid of the bad teachers.
