The students are the best part of this school. The kids are very welcoming and friendly. The students carry themselves with class and are very respectful. If you are new in town, this school is the better choice for enjoying a friendly atmosphere which promotes a better learning environment for students. The campus and school are both beautiful and very friendly. Great programs such as BPA, and MESA and athletics are competitive for both boys and girls.
When we moved to Las Vegas recently, we toured both of the local high schools. I was surprised, after having lived in in a neighboring state my whole life, by how nice this high school was. We enrolled our daughter here, and we were never less than ecstatic about how family-like this school is. My daughter was able to take several of the AP courses offered at this school, and she always talked about how challenging most of her classes were. Glad we ignored some of my coworkers that said we should send our daughter to Robertson high. We made the right decision with this one for sure.
Great! Everyone cares for what goes on day to day, with dignity and respect for all.
If you want a great education come to West Las Vegas High. The school board was just named school board of the Year in New Mexico.
I HATED THAT SCHOOL. The teachers were lousy. The janitors were lousy. The toilets always had fecal waste on them. I do not like green eggs and ham sam I am.
West Las Vegas Schools are like a family. The teachers care about their students and the students care about each other.There seems to be no evidance of social class division. The leadership of the administration is great, they have two new board members helping the other three and are now able to get things done. I'm a graduate of West Las Vegas and very proud of it. I'm a AVP of a fast growing company. Thank you West Las Vegas. "GO DONS GO".
I'm a graduate of West Las Vegas High School and I feel that I got a great education. I am now a student at UNM and the classes are a piece of cake. West did a very good job preparing me for college and life. Many say it is a bad school, but kids from west have class, respect, dignity and intelligence. I am very proud to be a graduate from West Las Vegas High School.
The staff is very helpful and have done well to prepare me for life and a higher education. No matter what people say about west it is a good school and it's getting better everyday. Go DONS!!!
New Blood, New Energy!! Its Looking Better every day at WEST Lets keepit up.
West Las Vegas high school has a core of excellent teachers and counselors. The problem lies with the board which for the most part is more interested in enriching themselves than with trying to ensure a quality education for all.
