All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I am a student at W.C.H.S and I really do appreciate the grading scale to be harder than most schools around the western kansas area. I like knowing that I am going into college more prepared for the college criteria. In college we are pushed harder than we are in high school and by having a more difficult grading scale and higher GPA, I feel that it is more beneficial for the students.

The grading scale is a problem. Bottom line: GPA is a huge factor when schools are evaluating perspective students. We are handicapping them because it is not an 'apples to apples' comparison. Also, the condition of the elementary and Jr High buildings is something the school board and community should be ashamed of. Yes, there have been attempts to pass bond issues but none have. Bottom line: the community is divided and without leadership to drive some much needed changes I am sure things will only get worse. I look forward to moving my kids to another district.

I too am a parent of a child at WCHS and I so disagree with the above review. Why do want to settle for average? One of the reasons our school does well is because they are expected to succeed at a higher level. Also as a parent of college students, the scholarship part is just not true.

I do not like the grade scale, it is really hard for kids to get a good scholarship for college that they are interested in. 94-100 is A, 90-93 B, 85-90 C, lower grade scale is D and F is 62-, as a parent it hard for my kid to get anywhere, by this grading scale. The school needs to lower the Grade Scale 90-100 is a A, A-, A+. 80-89, is a B, B-, and B+, 70-79, C, C-, and C+ and D, D-, and D+ is 60-69, below is F. It is really hard for kids to get there grade up if they already fail.
