  • I absolutely hate Westside every since Mrs. Perkins came. The rules are ridiculous and it seems that her nor the teachers like to see seniors graduate.

  • Westside Highschool is a pretty good school but some of the rules are outrageous. I feel that placing a student in ISS for being late is ridiculous. The drop out rate is at an all time high and placing so many strict rules on the children will only deter or delay some students from completing their education. I do believe that rules are important and necessary but the tardy rule is extreme.

  • Westside is a great school, but teachers and principals need to consider the students when they come up with so many unnecessary rules. Is it worth putting everyone in ISS. I've been in ISS for a week before because i was 5 min. late. I had to spend 3 hold days in ISS, missing a whole lot of work. Is it worth it. You rather see me at westside some extra years because this school wants to be extra strict. THINK ABOUT THE STUDENTS
