Thought I would provide an updated review for this school. Not a lot has changed from other comments available. Administration has no concept of recognizing students for academic excellence; my daughter was Honor Roll level, but guess what, they don't have an honor roll - to afraid it will target kids for bullying. Indicates they have other problems that need addressing. Facilities are overcrowded, several classes are in portable classrooms. Look else where in Hall County, for some reason West Hall remains a last priority to County School Board; perhaps because it has no representation on board. Same goes for WHHS, one of the oldest HS in county, but gets very little consideration for new facility. Consider Flowery Branch, even there old facility is newer and better equipped than WHHS.
This is an very good school with great teachers. The administration is easy to work with and does what it best for the kids. This school has great test scores and treats every with respect. I have been pleased with my child's education here. Great school!
Allowed my child to go here, but seeking out new school options for his future. Administration is horrible. If you want a great education for your child look elsewhere. The biggest plus they offer is the "extras " they get for being a title 1 school. It would be beneficial for them to focus on the students not a few extra computers. The principal likes to bark about the dress code but doesn't even follow it herself!
Do your research before sending your child here. The principal is on some sort of ego trip and could care less about the children. The teachers are hit or miss. The sports are average. Could be a much better school if they had leadership that worked with parents.
The kids, parents, and teachers at WHMS are awesome! You have to do your part as a parent and get involved. If you have a question, ask the teachers. There is a place for every child to exceed and succeed at WHMS.
This school is goo. I get a good education and they offer many great classes. They even offer High school Credit Classes when you get into 8th grade such as Art, Spanish, Math 1, Physical Science, Language Arts, and Computer Applications. There are not alot of perks at this school but you can get a good education if you actually try rather than not.
This school is great ! I get a great education and the teachers are so helpful and fun !!!all the students get along and if they dont the teachers work it out with them so at the end everyone is friendly and I feel very safe there!!!
This school has just been named the Georgia School of Character for 2009! The students wear uniforms and are ready to learn each day instead of comparing name brands of clothing. They follow rules of character and a character tree is in their main hall. The school is committed to excellence and I feel the best in the area.
I am substitute teaching at the moment and I love West Hall. Everyone on the staff tries to help you. I think that everyone is top notch. The students aren't perfect, but they are by far the best I have encountered.
