I graduated from West Bay over 20 years ago. I loved it and now my daughter attends West Bay and loves it. My only regret is that West Bay does not have middle school.

My oldest son attended West Bay after failing at 2 public high schools and graduated last year with close to a 4.0 GPA. The individual attention helped my son tremendously. He said that there were too many distractions at the regular public school setting of 32-38 students/class. He really did need a smaller class size in order to enable him to focus. I highly recommend the school and have recommended West Bay to many parents in the bay area.

My son who is now a sophmore was not getting what he needed in a public school system. His grades were slipping, his self-esteem lowered drastically & he just didn't care about school. Once he entered West Bay, after 3 weeks his teacher made a difference in his life that his wanting to learn has changed drastically... I was & still am in shock that my son is loving education!! He had mentioned that now he wants to graduate early & is looking forward to college! Way to go West Bay & all of your positive encouragement for our children ~

This school makes for a great learning environment where I can learn at my own pace! I makes working fun and easy, and prepares me for college. I love West Bay High!

Great school. My son is entering his senior year and will graduate early. His GPA went from 2.0 while attending a private school in San Francisco to a 3.8 at West Bay. He is focused and loves the smaller classroom size and coaching and feedback from the teachers. Great school, I wish we had come here first.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
