The WPHS staff it's the best in the country, their principal won the best principal of the nation award and WPHS has a five "A" ratings in a row!!!! That is like winning the super bowl five years in a row! Both of my children have attended West Port and are in college or entering college and will excel~ The key to WPHS success is their teamwork, and the genuine personal concern for each student, and most important the talent staff at WPHS is amazing~ Everyone there from the principal to the janitor take pride on their campus, their students, their performances, sports, choir, band, jrotc, etc, etc... That is why they are the best; I know it was an honor and a privilege to serve as the school advisory council board/president for the past 7 years! If as a parent you want your children to be safe, grow, get educated, and move to college WPHS is the place to go. The school has a motto that states "At West Port You can do it All” and it’s true!

This school is overcrowded and average at best. Every tear, after the first nine weeks, every student in the school has a schedule change because the fail to hire enough teachers over the summer. The Principal created this nightmare of a concept called Power Hour, where the students basically have an hour in the middle of the day to socialize. She is not open to any ideas that are not her own and is poor at decision making. The Assistant Principal for Curriculum is fabulous. She really listens, is solution driven, cares about students and is the workhorse of the school. Other than that, I can't wait till my son graduates from the chaotic circus of this school.
They offer so much... you need to take advantage of it though. They don't make you do it. Power Hour is a great idea. (again, if you take advantage of the time.) Go West Port Band!!! State is calling you. 2014 Marching Band is great, this year.
Amazing school with teachers who really want you to succeed and our principal is nominated for the best principal in the nation, she is a top 3 finalist as of now, West Port High School is a model school for the country as many principales from around the nation have toured the school to see how Mrs. Ellspermen runs her school of at least 2700 kids
