    "This is the worst school I could ever have imagined. Maybe just the attendees and their self-absorbed parents. Friends in other counties look down on the kids at this school. I'm truly ashamed to be part of this school."

    "Outstanding high school! My daughter is a Sophomore at WFHS and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience at the school. The extra-curricular programs are outstanding and the teaching staff is top-notch."

    "I am graduating this May (2015). I have been to three high schools. This is my last. I started my senior year at West. The students and teachers alike are genuinely nice. Yes, like all schools, people have cliques but I've noticed that while everyone knows who their friends are, they still talk to pretty much everyone else. I am not an athlete, I didn't join any clubs this year and my GPA is one of the lower ones at this school (3.2) but I can honestly say that I still enjoyed West for the year I have spent here. The teachers are hard on us academically but they are really nice people, who actually care about their students. One of the AP Literature teachers have a Doctorate and she is AMAZING. West was voted Best of Forsyth 2015 and they have won yearbook awards two years in a row. The teachers work hard and so do the students. West is a melting pot with great academics and friendly faces. This is the first year of high school that I have not been bullied."

    "I graduated from this high school. All of the bad reviews on here are from the yuppies that live around here and expect everyone else to worship the ground they walk on. I didn't particularly like it myself, but most kids hate school. It feels like a prison because we never went outside like we did when I went to South Forsyth. Even just the small class break walking outside from the new building to the old building was nice. The teachers were great as long as you weren't getting in trouble, but as you can imagine they get irritated when you screw around. The problem with that is that most of these kids are really good at exploiting the school "justice" system and do just enough to not really get in trouble, which really pisses the teachers off. Then the parents come play the "my child is basically the second coming of Jesus Christ" card and complain that everyone is out to get them and their child. All of the "problems" people have with this school are actually their bad kids and their worse parenting. I went on to a good college and am very thankful for all the great AP opportunities that let me exempt classes in college."

    "if you are a stud football player, this is the place for you. if you're not, all administration hates you. the administration and majority of teachers are arrogant to the point where they won't make eye contact with you or even speak to you in person. granted, there are several teachers whom I absolutely adore. in fact, there's one teacher who has offered to make me lunches when my mom was in the hospital, and even offered to show up to my court date (for reasons not related to West)."
