West Side is what you make it. When I was there it was not great but nor was I. When I decided that I wanted more, I did not blame the school I blamed myself. Since then I have served in the military, graduated from college and make a very good living. The city and school gas definitely gone through many changes. Most not for the better. They are still under represented and over taxed by Indianapolis. When I got a chance I left, only to return to visit family and every visit makes me want cut my wrist. I know that I am not part of the problem and I will agree that I am also not part of the solution. The city police and the state police who seem to harass people with out of state plates are going about pumping money into the economy the wrong way. When I am in Gary, I spend a lot of money shopping and such. However as soon as I feel the harassment I cut the visit short and spend my money where I think it is appreciated and not taken by the very individuals whose motto is to SERVE AND PROTECT. Humbug. I feel let down by the greed of the state not by the institutions of learning. The ball was dropped years ago and now we must deal with it or leave. I chose to leave.

I am a parent of children who did not originally attend school within the Gary school system. However I grew up in the area and when my family fell on hard times we ended up back in the area. I knew when my children started the system that the schools educational system was substandard. I apologize if many of you in the community will not hear this but it is so true. I tried to leave several times but if you don't have the means, like many of the people in the city you are stuck. It is so easy to say the parent need to get involved but the truth is that most of the parents are those that have been their all of there lives and don't know anything different. It is not until you leave the city that you find out what you are truly missing in terms of educational advancements or opportunities. Also what is not understood is that because of the low economic standard of the community as a whole they are not afforded the amenities as other communities and this would include education. I am 46 yrs old and many of the books that are used today are the same books that were used when I was a student at West Side High and the same is with some teachers. Sorry if you are offended!!

For all that posted positive comments about WS, thank you!!! For the negative posting, what are you doing to assist or correct the problems. If parents aren't involved, what can we do to assist the school with getting the deadbeat parents involved. A school is what parents make it. If no involvement is there, then the kids will act that way. Lets stop making it seem like the schools let down our kids, TAKE RESPONSIBLITIES FOR YOUR ACTIONS.

I left West Side after my freshman year and moved out of the state. Before this, I thought West Side was "the place to be", but now I just think its "the place to be, if you don't have anything better to do." Since leaving this school I have come so much farther in my academic endeavours, and I feel sorry for the people that are still there. I never knew there was so much to learn and so many opportunities for my future before I left this school. The only good thing that I can say about it is that I had some really great friends there, but, honestly, I didn't learn anything until I left.
