Western High School Ratings & Reviews
Western is not the place to send a with special needs child. I have done everything in my control getting my child help outside of the school. The therapist gave me all numbers and contact information to give to the school to get my child help, for some reason they continue to not use the resource given to them to help special needs children. Though my child has on record the disabilties and I signed a permission paper for the doctors, therpist, and middle school to share information to help my child they continually refuse to help. Their answer to the problem is to suspend a child when they show behavior that is out of the child's control because of the disabilities. I hope they change this in the future and try to become more understanding of these types of students.
Since enrolling my child in this school, they have flourished. They have teachers, counselors and coaches who check in with my child to see if they need help and to make sure they are okay. My child is not only excelling in academics but excelling socially. My child has been in 5 different schools due to job relocations and this one is by far the best!! Everyone is super friendly and caring. School is updated and clean. Grounds and sport fields are well taken care of. They have an exceptional weight room. Just an overall great School experience here!
Awful school. Don't send your daughters or special needs children there
This was a new year for my son going into 8th grade and we really didn't know how the change would be. He went to a small private school for years and wanted to attend a larger school with more diversity. I simply can't say enough GOOD things about the school. The teachers are absolutely wonderful with this transition. They constantly are checking with him and making sure everything is working out. They stress compassion and respect. He has made many friends. He loves going to school everyday which he didn't like last year. His confidence is growing daily. It has been such a positive experience. Thank you Western Middle School!!!
The teachers do not challenge the students whatsoever and there is no way to move up in the grades without knowing just the right people. I know this like the real world but children shouldn't be just thrown into the world right away they need to be slowly weaned into the world. The principals just stay behind their desks all day and do diddly-squat playing games on their phones et cetera. The rules are not followed throw and there is no consistency between policies.
