    "At my school, most of the popular classes are general electives, in which case, the course is pathetically easy with little to no actual instruction from the teacher and grades are almost always a "C" or higher unless a student doesn't even try. For the core classes, most of the classes have average students, meaning that they care and try, without acting out, and the teacher instructs properly but there is sometimes some deviance from the troublemakers. In honor or AP classes, the teachers are excellent in staying on track and the students have to work for their grades. The students are challenged. Most of the teachers put in effort for their curriculum but I wish that the classes were more selective sometimes. I don't like being in a honors or AP class with students who don't try to get good grades or even behave properly. The scheduling process is fairly easy for enrolling in classes but very slow and lagging when try to reschedule, often leading in coming into a class weeks late."

    "When is comes to the knowledge and teaching expressed by each teacher throughout the building, I would say that they are all experienced in their specified fields. They communicate the information well to the students' understanding. Interest and maintaining control over student behavior is largely mixed throughout the building. Some teachers prefer to punish all students as a result of one's actions while others would issue warnings and inflict punishments on the single individual. Overall Shawnee Mission West teachers are great at what they do."

    "All 4 years I've been attending West, all of my teachers have been great. I even enjoyed all of my classes that i struggled with because of my teachers."

    "Most teachers positively engage students, and incorporate the student laptops into the lesson. All teachers that I have had know everything about their subject, and in some cases, continue to learn more."
