West Catholic is a family in the truest sense. There's a sense of comradery in the halls when you can call every student by name. West is an unique school where family is evident at every corner. The teachers are all amazing because they're all willing to push us in the right direction and go the extra mile for us. The school is more than just a building, it's our second home. The friendships made here will last a lifetime and I'd love to stay in touch with my teachers. The city of Philadelphia is lucky to have such a school. I love my West Catholic family with all my heart and i will forever be a Burr.

I'm just a sophomore at this school and I know this is one excellent school. this school provides so much more than any other school can. The realistic measures this high school I've experienced will enrich my future. I know that the diversity plays a major role on why this school is an excellent choice. In this school we learn to respect and acknowledge other people's ethnicities.

West Catholic is the best High School I could ever enroll my daughter in. West Cathollic has challenged my daughter to succeed and follow her dreams as well as opening a new fond liking of Christ.

Being third generation to graduate from the halls of West Catholic, I have found my experiences there not only helpful in further education, but in life in general. The faculty is wonderful and prepare their students for the outside world, while keeping true to Christ's teachings.
