  • Great school! We sent our three sons there and while it is a sacrifice financially it is worth every cent! We all enjoyed the time spent at West and would recomend it to everyone. Top notch academics, sports, the arts all presented from the Christian perspective. Our only regrets is that my wife and I did not have the opportunity to attend West ourselves.
