WEST HIGH IS A TOP-NOTCH SCHOOL

SHARE WEST HIGH IS A TOP-NOTCH SCHOOL

During this past school year, I have had the opportunity to visit West High on a very regular basis. Over the last 20 years, I have had the opportunity to be in about every high school in Utah as a high school teacher, counselor and principal. Utah has a lot of very fine schools guided by great educational leaders, and West High is one of the best schools in Utah.

The first time I visited West, I was impressed with the rich heritage that is reflected at this great school. The halls are lined with beautiful art. Their Hall of Fame composed of West graduates reads like a "Who's Who in Utah." Tableclothes adorn the tables in the lunchroom. West has a beautiful library that would be the envy of many schools. I am impressed with the students and the diversity at West. Students always treat me respectfully, and never once have I felt threatened. West is a school that really cares about learning and programs to serve young people who attend.Every school, like most homes, has problems, and West is no exception, but I say this without qualification. If I were a resident of Salt Lake, I would be proud to have my children attend a fine school like West High.
