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
It is my daughters first year at West Boca. It has been a fantastic transition and she Loves it. She is in the Medical Program, enjoying every minute and has been lucky to get wonderful teachers. Very happy at West Boca.
West Boca is the worced school in Florida 1.every kid is on Drugs 2.Bullying all over the place 3.More Police is needed at the school
I need to know more about this school, results for fcat, advice from students attending this school
i love this school, it is great for our children. But there is a little bit of choas, but thats what high schools are like, Right?
Its a 3 year old high school with great teachers and academic courses.They care about the students.My son was in the first graduating class of 2006.
My son is in the drafting program and loves it. He runs cross country and could not be happier. The school is beautiful and I can't wait to send my other kids here.
i just graduated class of 09 babyy lol from this school i went to west boca all four of my high school years i love it the classes they offer are great the teachers really care i wish i can go back already
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 am a student at WBRH. This is my first year here but it is a great school. Few problems other than stuck up students. I am in the Drafting academy and its amazing.--
West Boca High School is the BEST thing to happen in my son's academic life!!
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.
