    "This school has to be the worst in Broward County and the new principal is just as bad as the last three. If you set your expectations low you will still be disappointed"

    "Parents beware do not send your child to this high school you will be very disappointed and your child will be abused by the staff. Principal Jimmy Arrojo is a 20 year Broward County School Board robot only interested in keeping his job and covering up for his unmotivated staff. The level of education your child will get could be compared to an intercity hood. The office staff is rude and uninterested in helping even with the most simple of tasks. Consider Private school or gaining a transfer to a different high school"

    "If you know that your child will be able to handle Advanced Placement coursework off the bat, then Western may be what you're looking for. Otherwise, don't bother. The school is underfunded, undersupplied and understaffed, and its instructors below the AP level are a mixed bag at best. Administration is unorganized, unmotivated and incompetent, as virtually any faculty member would argue, and the guidance staff exists only to (sluggishly and reluctantly) process paperwork. Again, only commit to Western if you're certain that your child will excel with a schedule comprised mostly of APs. The school hosts a cadre of adequate (and in some cases, excellent) AP teachers, and the classes themselves are taught independently of Florida standards. That means in turn that the classes are rigorous and if a student were to flunk out of a class he or she wasn't ready for, it would mean having to experience the horrors of honors, regular or remedial-level courses taught by people who'd fail if forced to take their own tests. So if you think your kid can stick it out on his or her own, go with Western. But if he or she can't and you still want him or her to succeed, find a private school."

    "I'm going to be completely real and straight up about this school. If you're a student who talks too much, gets to know many people, or are very social. Do not come here. This school has a lot of problems when it comes to being social. There are many fights, but if you don't mess with people and go to school to do your work, get your grades, and leave then you won't have any problems. I'd have to say that at least 70% of the students here are involved in drugs, honestly. Besides that there are a handful of good, nice teachers, yet the majority of the teachers are rude and out of place mostly nagging about their paychecks and assigning a lot of homework. Most teachers do NOT teach, so if you're like me and actually want to go to college you're going to have to do a lot of self-teaching. Also, bullying, drugs, violence, etc. are all very common in this school. Rude teachers are also extremely common. Just try to stay out of problems and watch with who you talk to at the school and you'll be fine. Also, I'm a junior here. So, honestly consider everything I've said when making your choice of schools. Also, I am an all A student and all honors/AP classes."
