i would say if your looking for a school in which provides adequit attention and appropriate manners and behavior and allows students to push their selves and prepare for the future, DONT SEND YOUR KID TO WEST. I will admit they have an outstanding JROTC team which I am proud to be apart of being S2 in my battalion staff but besides such manner WEST is not the school for you. The teachers ignore you and treat you as if they are a babysitter and the fellow students are not only rude and immature but are very uneducated.
West is a wonderful school where students learn to take charge of their future. The students at West are gifted, intelligent, hard working, and innovative. I have never been a part of a community that takes so much pride in what they do. At West anything is possible.
There is not a lot of learning going on at West High School. There on not enough teachers and the ones still working there are plagued by poor leadership put in place by DPS. The classrooms are are overcrowded and the teachers end up as babysitters. Next year I intend to transfer my child to a school where he will have a chance to prepare for his future.
HIspanic based population that is very gang related! West has always been a problem and continues to be. Kids who would rather rave then learn, girls that would rather be socially open than learn and get out of the ghetto they grew up in.
I LoVE WEST HIGH IM A SENIOR THERE CLASS OF 2011 bby i been at west for three years my junior year i went to kennedy and oh boy i didnt like it im glad to be bakk GO COWBOYS THE TEACHERS MAY GET YU MAD BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS BE THER TO HELP I RECCOMEND YU SEND YUR CHILD TO WEST TO HAVE AN AMAZING FUTURE
I have one child attending West and as the principal was the same as when my child attended Middle school, he knew what my child needed to do well in school. With that in mind, my son has done quite well and is now preparing to become a sophmore. West is a great school now in thanks to the new principal
West is a great school if the student wants tol learn and has supportive parents. I graduated from there in 2003 and there was alot of peer pressure but my parents were great role models and that made me excell. The teachers were also very supportive when they saw a student wanting to learn and grow.
West High School was an excellent high school for my son. In particular, the Center for International Studies(CIS) program provided him with international travel opportunities, a broad range of international classes and a very diverse group of student peers. West High School itself has some great teachers and opportunities. Though the school has a bad reputation, we did not see it often, and the experience there was generally good.
