As a 2015 graduate, I can definitely say that West Boca High has had a profound (and positive) effect on my future. I found this school to be extremely helpful, even from day 1 when I was a shy freshman. The academies are a great place for like-minded students to share their interests and the Performing Arts Academy has been added this year (the plays are phenomenal and any student who wants to pursue a career in theater, dance, or singing should check it out!) The guidance counselors will work with you with any questions you have and there are many organizations to join or help with homework. As for the quiet students, there IS a group for everyone! You just have to meet people halfway and look around the courtyard! Do not let any opinions that West Boca is a "snobby" school lead you elsewhere. This school brought me out of my shell and recommended useful scholarships, like Pathfinders and George Snow that I was proud to achieve and win overall, as a proud member of the Information Technology Academy. The teachers will work with you if you put the effort and realize that you need the help. Please consider this school if you want a successful future that prepares you for your career ahead! Go Bulls!

The school refuses to enforce anti-bullying policies and thus I was forced to obtain a restraining order on behalf of my daughter.

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
