West HIgh is the BEST school in the city. It has the most balanced and diverse population, a little bit of every group here. The teachers really care about the students and continue to seek ways to reach out to them. We are big enough to offer a variety of activities for students to be involved with, yet small enough to not be lost in the crowd. Students helping others in many ways is the norm here. It feels like you're home when you see what is going on and interact with the people. They are REAL; you don't see so much of trying to put on a front of something they're not just to impress you. They don't need to. While every school has its personal strengths and weaknesses, West High majors on the strengths of the teacher/parent/student connection. You won't find it better amywhere else. Indeed it is true--WEST IS BEST!!
Amazing school with great teachers and leadership. A small enough environment for individual learing, yet big enough for lots of learning opportunities. The new IB programme is off to great start! As parents we know we could have not picked a better learing environment for our child!
West is an excellent school that cares about and adderesses each student and their learning. Beginning in the 2011-12 school year West will be the only GB public school to offer the IB (International Baccalaureate) program for students.
