  • Reviewed by Parent or Guardian on April 14, 2011
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • First Impression - absolutely disgusting the amount of trash scattered on the school grounds.
    Suggestion - if the faculty spent as much energy keeping the grounds clean as they have with the dress code, it would have been cleaned up months ago.

    Take a drive up the entry way and look at the landscape to the right. Shame on you West High Faculty - let's hope the quality of education is better than the appearance.
