My daughter is a freshman and absolutely loves the school and her teachers. The school made for an easy transition from middle school and does a great job communicating to the parents about what's happening on campus. Look forward to all the years ahead.

My daughter graduated three years ago, and my son has 2 years to go. Great school, high standards, but some of the teachers ...??? I've been around the block a few times, and some of the teachers (a very small percentage) have issues. They don't teach. Learning to be an independent thinker and learning to be resourceful is one thing, but this one teacher could have done so much more. Dissapointing and frustrating. But as a whole, the school is great and there is a lot of opportunity. We moved to West Boca even before WBCH existed, and this only made the area better, we were lucky to choose this area to live in.

Some teachers are good while other teachers just want you to get their class over with and move onto the next year. They also push you into taking AP classes just so they can get the money from it. But other than that, this school is just phenomenal. This school does a great job for preparing you and challenging you to your academic needs

I am a student currently attending West Boca High School and I absolutely hate it. I went from an A-B student, with high GPA and HPA to a D-F student. Teachers are intimidating and make everything uncomfortable. The students are very snobby and are not open minded at all. The experience I have had at this school made my high school experience so far a dreadful time! Do not send your children here!

As a West Boca graduate I would like to say that West Boca is an Amazing school. I was there when it first started and trust me it only got better as the years went by. The school is great acdemicly and performing wise and everything in between. West Boca is such a well rounded school increasing performance in areas your child needs, as long as he/she is willing. If the student at this school wants to acheive great thing with a good attitude, he/she will find everything for this school provides it all. It simply depends on wheter you really want it or not!!!!!!!

I have now had one child graduate in the first graduating class and another child graduate from the first 4 years of the school. This school is terrific. Guidance counselor, Ms. Capps, is exceptional and very caring. Performing arts department is the best around. Vanguard band and director are absolutely incredible. Drafting and Design and other academies have much to offer our students. I have another child in elementary school and am very excited she will be attending West Boca in the future.

The Vanguard is phenomenal, best band and best band program in the state. If your child has an interest in music, this is the school for you.

The School after it's three-year life has been integrated; you can now find great diversity in both student and faculty bodies. Great School.

If your child went form A-B to D-F, then this high achieving school is not the right place for your kid. This school provides a wide range of paths for the students to follow and its curriculum is rather on the difficult, but achivable side. Highly recommend school for hard-working and knowledgable students.

I'm not a parent, but a student, I was enrolled in wbhs for 2 years, they were the best two years. This school makes students feel as if they are part of something, if not in sports, in academies and other programs, there is something for everyone. Teaching wise, the teachers are amazing, always willing to help, the learning environment is great, I had a lot of fun in this school and still did great academically. The guidance is also amazing, the counselors are always helping, the parent involvement is good. In my opinion, West Boca Raton High School was the best school I attended.

This school is intimidating and uncomfortable. It is stark and fortress-like. My child went from an A-B student to a D-F.

My daughter is in her second year of West Boca High and loves the atmosphere and most of her classes. Very close to home if you live in West Boca. My daughter is an exceptional student and manages well with poor caliber of some teachers. If your child needs to be constantly motivated you won't find it here. Principal is shamefully never at sports events, choir or band events...very dissapointing, not accessible to students and parents. Teachers should be reviewed every year. Edline is the best part of the whole system...like spying on your kids without getting in trouble. Overall: I recommend but you need to stay on top of your child!

West Boca has a modest academic program. The physical plant is new but 7 miles west of 441 makes the location inconvenient for most. the student body is relatively small, not culturally diverse.
