    "My favorite part of West High is that it is one of the most diverse high schools in the US and they are very accepting."

    "Teachers for the highly gifted program are very much exceptional--every teacher I have had thus far have been very engaging and very interested in the subject they teach. I've also heard very good things about the teachers for the IB program, but otherwise, I heard teachers of regular classes were of poor quality."

    "The thing I love most about West Anchorage High School is that it is extremely diverse. If you walk down the hallway on any given day chances are you'll probably hear about 10 different languages being spoken within different groups of people. Yet that doesn't cause much friction within the school. I, myself have 5 best friends, none of us have the same first language or skin color but that doesn't matter too us. West High School is an example of diversity at its finest. We have the regular drama that any school has but very little of it is race motivated."

    "It is a great school with an excellent IB program. I have attended the school since 2013 and would like to see everything stay the same. Although West is the oldest high school in Anchorage, it is one of the best and students love the history that it is part of. We embrace the history and have an exceptional amount of school spirit. I am a senior at the school, and in my four years, I would not change anything. This school has an exceptional amount of diversity and a number of accelerated programs, making this school well rounded and a good fir for people of all backgrounds."

    "It can be pretty segregated between the gifted programs and the rest of the school, but other than that, people are really inclusive and respectful. The school is really supportive as a whole."
