West High School is a community of learners. We strive to provide a rigorous, stimulating academic environment in which students, our first priority, find both challenge and support. We nurture a sense of curiosity, connection, and love of learning that extends beyond school years. We believe that exceeding state and federal academic standards is a non-negotiable. With equal regard, we support the development of social skills by encouraging a fundamental respect for oneself, our environment, and the larger world.
We believe that all students deserve to be surrounded by adults who believe they are capable of high achievement. We believe that every child deserves to be surrounded by a culture of high expectations and a rich array of options for the future. We believe that every child deserves dedicated educational and career guidance in order to define the pathways to the options he or she chooses. We believe that every child deserves quality curriculum, instruction, and services to be able to realize his or her personal aspirations by making well informed choices.
