    "Full disclosure: West also has one of the highest achievement gaps in the country. It's also probably the most liberal: largest Freedom from Religion club, Marxist Club through to Young Progressives but no Young Republicans Club. Required reading in Eng Lit = book on the expriences of 6 African-American women (2 of whom are lesbians). There's a place for everyone but the vocal diversity is significanly skewed left. Just so you know."

    "I have two kids in West High School. My son is in chess club and my daughter is in cross-country. Neither of them could enjoy school more. There are over 2000 kids currently enrolled in this high school, so there are enough kids of each personality type that most everyone can find friends. For example, my son, who is on the autism spectrum, has never had a problem being bullied and is very happy with the level of social acceptance he finds. The teachers represent the whole range from good to bad, as well. The level of parent involvement - as well as the overall culture of this part of Madison - is great."

    "It's the highest achieving school in WI; over 7% of the senior class were national merit finalists. (33 semifinalists-the most in the state!) There were 3 perfect ACT scores this year. Overall, there is enormous drive to succeed amongst the students, with a good majority of them being 3.5 gpa and above. The pressure to do well, not just from parents and teachers, but from fellow students as well, is noticeably great. It was a family joke that hardly any of the seniors skipped all day on senior skip day- they didn't want to miss their important classes, even with two weeks of school left!"

    "I can't imagine a better school environment. The talent, diversity, and general culture of care and nurturing here are an example of what the world will be some day. All walks together striving for excellence. Public school kids going to Harvard, Yale, MIT, USC, Berkeley, Stanford and every school between."
