In my opinion, our school needs more experienced and more knowledgeable teachers.

West High is a great school with wonderful teachers. I believe they need to work more on athletics. As far as training goes, West has the worst support from 95% of the parents, and west doesn't provide enough training for these kids. I say let the kids earn the money through a fundraiser to earn money ...  Read more
