This school is terrible!! Dont send your child here he/she will hate it here.The students learn at a very low pace and rate that in my opinion doesnt meet core standards. plus! The scienr teachers and the english and language teachers all suck amd on eteacher even makes fun of people who have special needs,she calls all her students "retarded" when the dont get. Something right. I dont recommed this school at all! I give it a 0 out of 5 and i am a high school student

West Prep is a fantastic school! I started attending during the 2007 school year and it has changed a lot since then. It is a community within itself. I love the teachers there; they seem to care about us and what road we choose to take in life. I can proudly say I love that place. It may be missing many core parts of a normal high school/middle school, but offers smaller classes a more relaxed and easygoing environment and a very diverse curriculum. West Prep has broken so many stereotypes and rumors about what it used to be and with its first graduating class this past 2009-'10 year it is a school on the rise and I am proud to be a part of that.

I have been in this school since the 6th grade. At that time the school was know as Charles I. West Middle School. The school has changed a lot. West Prep has better teachers now. The high school division offers small class sizes, which gives students more learning opportunities.
