I believe all of the teachers here are incompetent and lack drive to see the students succeed. It redefines coming in for 8 hours and leaving. I've tried contacting the teachers with no return response. 8 hours prior notice is required before monitoring a class. Why? It's stupid. We should be able to do surprise visits to see the lack of teaching and call them out on it.
This school administration lacks follow through and respect. The attendance office never keeps track of notes provided to them. The absences always remain as truant due to the schools neglect to detail. I get non stop recorded calls every day. I've requested for the calls to stop 6 times and I still get them. The principal never returns calls after several requests and visits. The vice principal tried to give detentions to students getting picked up by parents after school. He sent formal slips home with the students. The district office knew nothing about this, nor did the principal. This school should be closely monitored by Sacramento for their unprofessional behavior and the ongoing low test scores. 60% of the students shouldn't have low test scores. This falls on the teachers for not properly educating our children. If anyone has an option, do not send your child here. Your child will not get into college from a high school like this.
low test scores for 60% of the students...athletics have way too many walk-on coaches...administation has a high turnover rate...most classified were hired because they could speak Spanish or Vietnamese...school looks like a prison with gray bars around it
WHS has been warm friendly kind and understanding, the receptionist is doing Multitasking and has so many things going all at once, she does her job with compassion and class, the attendance secretary is very receptive and she has a keen sense of whats going on with the students she does not judge and is helpful, attendance has gone out of the way on a very busy day to make the issue i am dealing with in regards to a teenager i have been heard and understood, helped and validated by the vice principle of discipline. The school is patient with all the students, even in supervision...a much need sternness is given but i observed what I would call a great deal of love behind the disciplinary motives that came to the students who were there as i was waiting, it was very nice to see people being concerned and respectful to each other to the parents and to the students even as trouble is brewing with a student they are well trained to be an understanding sounding board.i trust WHS to care, they are very fair God be for you WHS!
A lot of reviews might criticize this school, but if read carefully, those reviews are rating this school based on that are no longer valid to Westminster High School's current condition, such as experiences a whole decade ago. This school has many resources for its students, the problem isn't with the school, but with the students who don't try or use the resources. If WHS was to have admissions requirements and entrance exams like top schools such as Oxford Academy, then this school would be one of the best, but this method is not deemed as fair here and so the school's credibility is left in the hands of its students and demographic and I can tell most of the current teachers and staff try to help all of these students. Your high school experience is greatly differentiated by the level of classes you take too.
