WRHS truly cares about each individual child. Students are provided with small classes and many opportunities to be actively involved in sports, clubs and classroom activities. It is truly a great school!!

I attended western reserve and I think it was an alright school to grow up in. The teachers were helpful, granted I dont think I learned as much as I should have--but I guess It was my fault as well. The person named 'george' who posted is a big idiot and didn't even go to the school but for one year, then was homeschooled. The school let me be me, and thats what I liked. You graduate and then dont realize how good you actually had it.

Western Reserve is a wonderful school to attend. I was really pleased with my 12 years. I found that the teachers are very compassionate about their course of study and is willing to help anyone who asks. The key to success in class is to ask for help. They aren't going to spoon feed you; you have to work for it! I wouldn t want it any other way. I enjoyed the challenges I had to overcome in some of my classes, mostly because I had to do some critical thinking. The extracurricular activities are well organized and fun. Participating in an extracurricular activity even pushes you to do well in your studies. You have to keep good grades to be eligible to play or participate. They keep a close eye on the students by doing random drug testing.

I was a student at this school,graduated last year, some of the teachers where kinda ok, but mostly you could see that its a close knit Christian society. So with my religion being a minority they did there best to single me out and ridicule me. I have no problem with other religions myself, its mostly other peoples problems. I think people need to set aside there differences and just get along. Life is to short. George

I went through this school system from K-12. Many of the problems I had early on stemmed from persons other than teachers in elementary school. I was a horrible student. I literally hated school. But what it comes down to with Western Reserve is the academic level and willingness of the staff to help the students. Many teachers during my time there set the seed for my success today. They say you don't use any of the things you learn in high school in real life, but I have had to use everything from math to proper literacy in order to succeed. It has taken me many years but I owe the credit to those men and women in this school system. I will be returning to the area and sending my kids there for them to get the higher standard of education this school offers.

I think this was a great school. I learned so much there. I was in the OWA program and also the ROTC. It really was nice! The teachers are terrific for the most part. They taught me how to read, write and do other things the proper way. The only bad thing was the sports programs. They don't offer enough sports. I was interested in Golf, Tennis, Chess Club, Swimming and many more that were not offered. Also the transportation is top of the line. Western has the best bussing in the whole are! I think everyone should go to this great school. I became so sucessful off of what I learned there.

Western is a great school! Its small but not to small. Your kids could play almost any sport with out the fear of them being cut. There were no problems when I went to school. The 1 thing to remmember about High School, is that its not what you learn in the books, its the life skills you learn, communication, pressure, leadership, deadlines, accountability for your actions. These are things I deal with everyday in the advertising world, and with most other jobs. Science, Math past the 6'th grade, History, I never use them. But the other things you learn at a school this size you will. Reputation means so much in the real world. You get a bad rep, good luck getting a good job in your field.

The 'average' student graduating from the school does not appear to be at the level necessary to be successful as a first semester college student without significant prep work, even though they may have taken college prep course work at WRHS. Of course, this is a nation-wide problem, but it seems that student stats are comparably lower than other schools their size in the geographical area. The drug testing policy at this school is certainly a consideration for all parents, and the potential for misuse is great.

The school is good sized and is in a good neighborhood. There are just not enough different classes and choices offered to the students. They have just recently begun an advanced placement program and honors classes. The students having a hard time are often in the same classes as though students who excell. Leaving the better students bored covering the same material over and over, and the slower students left behind still trying to understand the previous material.

As a former student, I believe that a large amount of the teachers do not give the extra attention to students that are having a difficult time with the subject. I always wished my teacher would take me aside and offer some extra help. Very few teachers offer one on one help for students with problems. If a student trust a teacher enough to tell them he or she has a problem then the teacher should try to arrange time for that student. I am aware that teachers are very busy, but so are many students. And if a problem, either at home or in school, is effecting a student than the teacher being confied in should help as much as possible. As far as a principal goes, I was never very happy with any of the principals in the 4 years that I was in high school. I was very impressed with the principal in 1995. The only thing that I can thank the principal for was block scheduling. I noticed that it gave more one on one with the students and teachers, and it gave more time for understanding and going over material learned in class. Over all I can say that I was not entirely impressed with the staff in the school. However, I was impressed with the enthusiasm some teachers had, the cleaniness of the school, and the disipline actions of the principal. Other than that I was very disipointed how little the staff gets involved with students that are in the shadows of the classroom. P.S. Sometimes the kid in the corner is the one most in need of the front row...meaning...the kid that looks like he is alone is in most need of someone showing him he is alive. I would know. I was that kid
