  • I was a student at West High School from August 2004 to March 2007. I was not able to graduate from there, but it is one of the best schools around. The counselors are very helpful and caring. The teachers are without a doubt some of the most qualified and competent instructors I've ever had. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable and security is very good. I'd recommend this school to anyone.
