West Catholic High School Ratings & Reviews

"The staff and administrators of West Catholic School give of their time and talent to provide excellent academic instruction and just as importantly, they are constant role models of strong christian living. Students are offered opportunities to challenge their critical thinking skills in the multiple on-site teacher taught AP level classes. Technology tools are employed to enhance creative learning and global thinking. Leadership skill building is strongly encouraged through all the multiple sports programs, extracurricular clubs, service organizations, and community based programs. The parents of this school act in community to support the staff and students with sports, music, and faith booster activities and have become our ""family"" in faith and community. We are so blessed to have our children attend this fantastic school and would strongly encourage others to enroll their children in this school that turns learners into leaders,"

In a world that has moved toward enabling and the dumbing-down high school students, West Catholic defies the trend and challenges students to the academic rigors they are certain to meet in life beyond high school. Our son is currently finishing up his sophomore year in college, yet, because of his earned and transferred high school AP credits, he is a senior. This gives him 1st pick at college course selection each semester, a perk should you want your child to complete college in 4 years. It also makes minoring in more than one subject an easy reach. West Catholic is challenging! It shows you how to work hard and raise the bar on living a life devoted to principle, discipline and conviction. A great investment!

"Attended West Catholic from 1965-1969 and had the honor as a Senior to be the mascot Freddie Falcon during the football season. Caring/compassionate/knowledgeable instructors, a community of students that have a common bond and form a strong camaraderie with each other. ""One the west side of the valley, there's a team we love so well. They're the boys from on the hilltop, all together hear us yell"". GO GREEN - GO WHITE - GO FALCONS FIGHT - FIGHT - FIGHT"

"I wasn't raised Catholic. I attended public school. I am not from Grand Rapids and we don't live on the westside. We tried to get to know the local public high school and they reacted in disbelief that we might have questions and might want to meet a teacher or two. Then we called West Catholic. What an incredible place. It's ugly. It's on the westside (who's from the westside?). You have to PAY money to send your kids there (wait, isn't school ""free?""). Your kids are held to high standards of conduct and when they make a mistake, they're held accountable-because this place cares. REALLY cares. Not like, ""let's wear pink to the football game to show we care,"" but truly cares. Our sons are thriving here. God willing and with West's great faith-based education, they are becoming young gentlemen scholar athletes. It's a modest, humble place that excels at preparing kids for responsible, faith-filled adult lives. Everyone associated with it cares so much about each kid and family. The teachers and staff are Saints. It's not perfect, but the ""perfect"" places are lying about themselves anyway! If you love your kids, send them to West. They will love you for it forever."

West Catholic is my alma mater, the school of my three children, and the place of my employment for over 25 years. I would not have sent my children to any other school; all three are college graduates and are very successful and happy. WC helped them realize their potential both academically and religiously. Go West!
