This school is very old and in need of repair including no air conditioning- which causes a huge problem at the end of the year on the third floor when students are trying to concentrate on taking their final exams! The principal is lacking the skills needed to be an effective leader. Some of the teachers are very good and go the extra mile for ALL of their students, while the majority set a bad example, do not care to put in extra effort for the kids that need it, and the teachers and principal do not work well together. (The school does not even have a fax machine- if that says something.) I believe in the Scranton area high school students can choose whether to attend West Scranton High o Scranton High. I would choose Scranton High for sure.

I am a student at West, and I can honestly say that there are several excellent teachers. Unfortunately they are the minority and there are many teachers at West that can barely interpret the material they teach.

This school might be a lot better if it were a little bigger. More educational diversity could then be offered. Sure we live in an economically depressed area but we could do more for our schools.

This school has a very good academic selection for its students and I feel my child did very well in attending this school.

I went to high school here and and currently earning my M.Ed. in curriculum and Instruction in ordr to become a teacher. It was the teachers at West Scranton High School that prepared me for my undergraduate and graduate education, and inspired me to pass on my love of learning to others.
