    "For all of the smack talk that this school gets it is certainly not a bad school. Most complaints involve things such as overpriced food. My three years have been pretty enjoyable and I've felt safe the entire time with the security that we have. I do however feel like the gap between Accelerated classes and normal classes are very large but I'm not sure if that is a nation-wide problem or not. I'm looking forward to my last year at the school and I will make the best of it."

    "Maine West has a reputation of being the most spirited high school in the area. Every year the school-wide fundraiser, which raises money for a charity voted on by students, is a huge success. Both students and teachers are overall helpful, kind, and generous. Tons of sports, clubs, and activities are offered. Starting a new club is fairly easy and encouraged. West has many electives: fine arts, engineering, computer classes, family and consumer science classes, internships, just to name a few. They have several AP classes, and in recent years have begun expanding their AP program. The college and career resource center is an excellent resource for answering all your college/career questions. The principal Dr. Haugan is incredibly involved, competent, and respected by students, parents, and faculty. She is always willing to hear student suggestions. She has high expectations, and in turn, makes sure to create a fun and welcoming environment for all students."

    "I truly enjoyed Maine West because it was a place where I had grown so much and found a road to follow. It helped me understand what I was good at so that I could master it and challenge myself by being in many AP courses. A great school to achieve anything that might be out of reach."

    "The academics at this school were easily the best I could have possibly experiences. The teachers are incredible and the vast majority of them are willing to help any student at almost any time. There are an incredible number of resources for students to use to be successful. My only complaint is that whilst teachers were great and willing to help, I would have found it to be more effective if the teachers pushed the students to get further help."
