    "I attended West High for my last three years of High School. My best experiences came from getting involved in sports and activities and from a few influential teachers. West High is over 50 years old and is only now getting its needed renovations to many of its old facilities. The school could better support its students by providing more counselors and better financial support to its academic and extracurricular programs. The school shines with some of its most committed and involved teachers and coaches, although the average faculty member tends to fall short. There is also a lot of competition among students both academically and athletically."

    "My father studied there so he brought me to his high school several times. We had a great talk with his teacher and found her really loves the students there. The facilities are great."

    "West High School has some of the most amazing, extraordinary teachers who truly teach their students about material beyond the classroom. Transferring to this school is something I do not regret at all. People truly care about your education here. There are many resources that can get you tutoring and academic help. Torrance is so full of diversity, it is reflected through West. I just wish I had been more involved at West looking back as a senior. Nevertheless West has provided me with some awesome memories and knowledge I won't ever forget."

    "Several good teachers with an environment enabling creativity and achievement. A slightly larger school, with around 500 students per year so it is a bit competitive. Trying to get to the top can be difficult, but the resources are there to improve. There are plenty of clubs and opportunity to make new ones."

    "West High School is a great school. The school does well preparing students for college and has lots of resources to help us be successful. ASB activities are always fun! Most of the teachers are very good, but there are only a few good math teachers. Also, students complain about their coaches a lot, but that probably happens at a lot of schools. The campus is old but it is getting an upgrade now that will be done sometime next year. I don't buy food at school so I didn't comment on that."
