"Western High School , I will almost guarantee statistics at Western are flawed in favor of making the school look better, than it it appears in NV State rankings. A simple, yet blatant discrepancy is demonstrated by the level of racial integration with the percentage of white students. The percentage is closer to 1 percent, than 11 percent. Testing stats are based apparently upon the best this school has to offer, since a huge number either drop-out, or fail to a level of not taking these state exams. Bad administration, worse students."
"When choosing a school district to live-in Las Vegas, it is much better tho stay away from schools such as Western High School. Consistently students are out of control, because of poor behavior, and an administration that wants the money for each student, rather than transfer clearly disruptive students. Teachers attempt to provide high school lesson plans for 70 percent who have elementary school reading levels. If the administration would allow the bad students to be placed outside of the classroom, then the teachers would be able to teach to the students who go to school to learn; otherwise, you are wasting your time, if you have a child who must attend. Make your best attempt to live in a better school district, since nothing is going to change, except whatever this school district wants to "spin" the propaganda to make your perception that this is a good school. Do not waste your time, your child's time, or if you are a prospective teacher check to see why 90 percent of the teachers are quitting when they receive little or no support from the administration. Bad school, bad environment. There is no green grass in Las Vegas at Western High School."
"I'm tired of hearing all these complaints about Western. Honestly the school really isn't that bad. "All the fight's"? what fights? there are hardly ever any fights that happen here and if there is it's because of little freshman that want to act bad. Also people talk as if we are such a bad school, but most of the people that say that don't even go here. yes in order to actually enjoy school you need to make friends and be more social, but isn't it like that at every school? WARRIOR PRIDE FOREVER!"
"I love this school! Yes it has its history however, its a school that offers a great deal of resource to parents if they want it. From helping pay for Summer school, ACT, SAT, the clubs the scholarships and heck free tutoring (at the best tutoring centers) if you feel your child should be placed in Honors or AP classes, they are always more then willing to help. At the end of the day the student has to want to succeed and not get caught up in drama, and this school offers opportunities to those that want it !"
"I am a junior at western. Class of 2013! & although many people say Western is one of the worst schools in the valley i love attending there. Yeah we do have alot of fights & drama, but at the end of the day as long as yhu dont involve yhurself in anything yhu dont need to worry about a thing. I have attended western for the past 3 years and have NEVER been in a fight, nor have been about to be in one. Also people talk sh** about how the administrators are so rude, but yet they dont put themselves in some of their shoes (not all of them are rude) that they have to deal with all the stupi* kids that go there ALL day & (WERE NOT ALL LIKE THAT) there are students there who appreciate school and want to be there to learn. One thing that does need to be changed is the campus monitor who thinks hes soooo cool and decides he can give dresscode only to certain people, and not to the ones he knows or is somewhat friendly with. hes nice but he needs to stop the prefferences between students. we are all the same..but ya at the end of the day western isnt so bad:P & well idk and idc what others say I LOVE WESTERN and that wont ever change ! :)"
