Cranston West is just a FANTASTIC SCHOOL...plain and simple. My two sons have matriculated through so I have been involved with the school for 7 years running. The teachers are serious and involved. The new principal has brought new passion and energy to the school. The curriculum is large enough to interest any student and there is a wealth of extra curriculum activities...art, music, theater, sports and academic clubs. My children have thrived in this environment and thoroughly enjoyed their high school experience.

My son started at this school with a "B" average and within 6 months he was failing. There are too many students in the classes and not enough effort from the teachers to care about the students that need help. I removed my son from this school to try to salvage his education and GPA, with the taxes I pay to live in this community they need to think about why so many kids do so poorly at this school.

This school has gone down the tubes. There aren't enough classes, the building is a dump, there is little regard for education, and there are bomb threats every other week.

Cranston West is an overall great school. Along with the school it also offers enrollment in the career and technical center program.The administration is involved in keeping a safe environment and they 2 follow the rule that they enforce. The teachers are friendly and involved in student progress. West has a Fantastic band program and other extracurricular activities. Student and parent involvement in extra curriculars is super. However, I feel that 'honors' classes are easier than college prep classes. Plus, you receive better teacher student feedback and you get treated with a little more respect. Overall, CHSW is a great school!
