    "As a student of Rock Bridge now, I look back at West and think of how unexceptional it was. Some of the rules were there seemingly to make the school appear structured, when they had no real purpose. For example, the sweeping. If a student wasn't in class by the first bell, even sometimes just outside the door, a good ten to fifteen minutes would be spent in an office filling out paperwork instead of being in the classroom getting an education. I also find it ridiculous the students can't leave the cafeteria during lunch. Off-campus would be a bit much, but the no cell phones during lunch (what's the point of that?) and not being able to switch between cafe areas is ridiculous. The teachers weren't fantastic, but not bad. It was restrictive, but an okay school."

    "West Junior High is an excellent school that has maintained a strong focus on academics throughout the years. The principal has been instrumental in training the faculty and staff and it shows! The faculty fondly call themselves the "West Family". Teachers collaborate and enjoy what they do. They still do not have air conditioning, but that is not any fault of their own. They are just in an old building."

    "I didn't like this school at all when I went there. The kids were immature, the teachers were mean, etc... my 8th and 9th grade years were the worst times of my life all thanks to this school. I would never go there again."

    "What a terrible School. I had a really bad experience there. The only good thing I have to say about the school is, the cookies were delicious. Other than that, I would not step into that school EVER AGAIN."

    "This school is really a very nice learning experiance for the students. They get the right amount of freedom and learn well. The principle is not involved in the school at all, but claims to be. She shows up at the band concerts and gets thanked and credit for what she doesnt do. A tip: put your students in honor classes. They believe that it is less work for regular, but the regular curriculem is very shallow, and very easy. Overall a very great school. I am a former student, and I had a great time at this school. The lunch ladies there are extreamly nice, and the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because of the principle."
