I love my school. The only downside is if the hall monitors think you're going a bit overboard (we often have birthday parties outdoors), and if your teacher is mean to you. I only have two teachers which I dislike; the rest are amazing. Kudos to Vidovich, McCord, Pantages, and Daigle. I have them this year and they're just plain great people who care about their students and aren't afraid to joke around. My grades do suffer, but it's because of my own actions. If you choose not to turn in assignments or study ahead for tests, of course you're not going to manage as well. But this school isn't just about our scores -- you will find a very warm attitude with the student body and most staff when you're on campus. (c/o 2011) KH

My daughter is attending WC as a freshman. The extraculicular music program is wonderful. She loved Marching Band and is also enjoying Drumline. Coming from a private school, we were concerned about her safety but at WC we never worry. I like that she is surrounded by other students who want to succeed and be involved in outside activities.

Honestly, I am attended this school, and it isn't all that people make it out to be. Some teachers miss so many days that students become behind in school. Some teachers do not know how to teacher and can hardly speak english. But other teachers are very good. Also, the school is very spirited which is good, but they do not care for girl sports that much. It is not all that great, it is okay.

West campus is the best school in sacramento, ca period. The experience was indescribably and unforgettable! First, the VP is not mean. I find him very caring and considerate. The teacher-student relationships are amazing. If you have the best teachers, you learn every second of every class, everyday. But, at the same time, you get to have tons of fun. Class rally, dances, student body activies like multi-cultural fair, talent shows, pancake breakfast, halloween carnival are just high school experiences every west kid will always remember later on in life. The students have so much spirit, even if some claim west is not spirited. then why do the gym seem to explode with screams during rally class competitions? All in all, this save and loving high school is worth the ride.

I am a recent graduate from the school and I feel like West Campus did provide me with opportunities to further my academic career. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I adored my teachers! The vice principal may seem like he is a mean person, but he is actually really nice. He is only doing his job by being strict. Honestly, the people at the school are great and it is really what you make of it. There may not be a lot of Advanced Placement courses offered, but that is changing within the school. The music program is excellent and I am really proud of what John Ousley has done to improve it. Most ofthe teachers dedicate their time and effort to help the students, and it really shows in the end.

West Campus is a great school. It academics are great. The teachers and staff do care. The only thing that's a bit off is the Vice Principal. He kind of ignore the student's feelings. But overall, this school's academic is great. The safety is great too. There hasn't been a fight in over ten or more years. The school is small, so you will probably get to know everyone there.

Staff at West Campus is disappointing unless you get the right teachers. West Campus is one, if not the safest school around. All four years, have I yet seen a fight. On the last note, West Campus was recognized as Distinguish School and has the API score since it's separation from Main Campus.

My daughter (who was also recognized as a GATE student) is an extremely academically motivated student. She aspires to go to the top UCs, and believes that West Campus would provide her with the tools to do so-and it did. West staff members (especially Anne Bestgen) generally do a good job of educating their students. However, this is a school that expects the students to be (or at least strive to be) self-sufficient. The West Campus adminstration does its best to accomodate each student. Although the tools that my daughter received were not particularly shiny or grand, they were sufficient. West has taught her to become more independent.

Honestly, I attended West Campus last year and I heard it was suppose to be a great school with great teachers. I was disappointed in half of my classes, I didn't learn that much. The Vice Principal is rude and not understanding to the kids that go to West Campus, and there isn't a bond or anything between the staff. Coming from Sutter Middle School, I expected a lot from West Campus and I thought I would learn so much from it , but I think that some teachers are there to just get money. I'm not saying all teachers because Mrs.Jung or Ms.Bestgen actually taught instead of other teachers. I wouldn't recommend this school, only thing that keeps me going is the enviroment its safe and calm.

We had hoped for a good public high school for our child. We did not find that here at West Campus. A great school requires parent/family involvement (and teachers that welcome involvement from the family instead of taking it as a threat), a good working relationship between administration and faculty, and a strong group of teachers who are enthusiastic about the subject(s) they teach instead of those who are just waiting to retire. Our child will no longer be attending West Campus. We wish the new principal the best of luck at West Campus and hope that it can be transformed into the school that many of us (still) hoped for.

I am a parent of a GATE student who went to Phoebe Hearst Elementary and Sutter Middle Schools. My child had superb earlier public education experiences and I was hoping for the same at West Campus (WC). After attending WC as a freshman we unfortunately decided - at least at this point - that it is below the earlier quality we relished and sent him/her elsewhere. There was just not one reason for doing this, but multiple small reasons: an innovative principal and some of the best teachers leaving, a school booster club/foundation that received too little parent/community support, athletics that were underfunded and in some cases badly coached, a poorly mentored student government, an unenforced dress code, and some physical facilities and landscape still in need of repair. If progress can be made in these areas by the new principal, we would again consider WC for a younger sibling.

I am a Student. This is an objective point of view. Students are supposed to have a minimum 2.7 GPA but it is not enforced. They assign projects that take an enormous amount of time to complete and complain later about grading them. They recently created a Science Fair which is absolutely useless. The hall monitors do not do their jobs of keeping students in the correct manner. Their only purpose is to inform one that he or she is not wearing a collar. Mrs.Jung the best teacher that ever worked for West Campus is leaving this year and she was the best part of West Campus.

Many good teachers but admin doesn't do anything to correct the teachers who really don't belong in a college prep environment. A couple bad teachers can really turn a motivated kid off from school. Instead admin is quick to blame students/parents for teachers' lack of ability. This is no different from other schools but I guess we had higher expectations since it was so hard to get in. Admin has really dropped the ball in some important areas like following up on reported problems and communicating with parents. Principal is impossible to reach.

My oldest two children graduated from HISP and my youngest child is at West. Nothing towards the HISP, but West Campus is definitely the best kept secret in Sacramento. The students at the school are the most respectful and spirited I have ever seen. The teachers are responsive and the principal is great. He knows all of the students inside and out. West Campus is demanding of its students and my child is having the time of her life.

This is one of the best in the area! For such a small school, the sports staff does an excellent job and is improving greatly. This has alot to do with the huge amount of parent involvement at West.

This school has great academic programs and a devoted staff. It is a nice, small and safe place for a student. While the availablity of extracurricular activities are limited, it is a smaller school so this is to be expected.

West Campus is a safe, friendly place for kids. It claims to be college preparatory. The test scores are high, and enrollment is small. There is a shortage of challenging electives, although the number of advanced placement classes is growing. For a kid who is looking for a safe place to grow up and get ready for college, it's fine.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
