Outstanding school. Teachers are well infirmed of students needs & most are available after hours to assist students; something that is rare today. Parents are treated as equal partners in their students education, a very refreshing idea. Mostly, the atmosphere is academic achievement & student diversity is welcomed. Students challenged to think outside the box, creativity & individuality is actually encraged, a combination my student has thrived in, especially stating her feelings of acceptance. She has yet to witness fighting which is something I can't say about other high schools in town. She has received honors and o never would've expected that. Teachers willingn
An excellent school! Topeka West High School has been like a second home for me. It has defined who I am and helped me realize who I want to be. Although this year we have an interim principle, he has done a very nice job adjusting and continuing to help West succeed. The Boomerang Mentors Program has been in existance for just over 5 years now, and it has been a huge success with the entire school atmosphere. The students want to be a part of the program and want to make a difference in their school. As a senior, I can say that I have seen a huge increase in the amount of school spirit at West. I have an overwhelming sense of pride to attend Topeka West and am proud to say that I am a Charger For Life!
