This is one of the worst small town public schools my children have EVER attended. This school puts more of an emphasis on sports than on learning. The children are totally unprepared for college. When a parent brings concerns to the principal it is largely ignored if you are not a parent from an affluent family. The absolute worst part of the school is the lack of a real English teacher. She doesn't not teach the children basic read, writing, or comprehension skills. The child will never write more than a book report their ENTIRE middle school and high school career. When confronted about the lack of English prep, the teacher simply stated that she must just teach differently than other teachers. This 'teacher' actually encourages student to watch the movie instead of reading the book! Horrible. Science and math teachers are good, but students get held back from learning because certain affluent children basically run the school and dictate the lack of progressing education. Children spend the day texting and on their phones with teachers afraid to discipline. If you have a choice don't send your child here for an education unless they make some major changes!!
This school insults the already crumbling American education system. There is a major lack of discipline amoung the staff in fear that their jobs would be in jeopardy.The school is run by parents of problematic children.If any concern rises against these children it is immediatly shot down by the school board.The children are disrespectful to the staff and don't suffer any repercussions.The students swear and yell in the classes, they use their cell phones and throw temper tantrums if they get called out about their actions.This pertains to mosly all of the high school students.The school offers brilliant math and science teachers but has a major problem in the english department.There have been many complaints from already graduated students about not knowing how to compose a college level essay,or a regular high school level essay for that matter.The school is focused on sports more than education, it actually scored below average on the state required exams for three years in a row.This school is not a good learning enviroment and should be avoided.
This is a small, rural school with an exceptional administration, teaching and support staff able to provide personalized, professional instruction almost one-on-one to nearly every student. Supported by an outstanding state technology program, Westhope High School is able to provide better than average technology education and support to their students.
