12 Parent Reviews for West Essex High School

My daughter graduated in 1995, and is now a doctor. Many of her fellow graduates have equally successful careers. When applying to colleges, West Esses was rated very highly. If I remember correctly, about 90% of the students that year went to college.

As a former student, I can tell you that this is not a remotely good school for any student that is interested in fulfilling their academic potential and not having a stressful life. Although some of the teachers are okay, the school does not run properly. The administration at this school is terrible. ...  Read more

I am a parent of a student that graduated from West Essex last year. I also have a daughter who is attending the school. West Essex is a good school. You get from it what you put into it.

Not a good school- please look elsewhere. If you are looking to do anything in life, this is not a good learning environment. There is constant construction, and sports are more important than the curriculum. this is Kathryn Perez by the way a student to this school (soon to be former student)

West Essex gives a lot of homework. I always thought this was a bad thing but then when I look at my test scores they are above average and I must admit that I did learn a lot. The construction is out of control though. I think we really needs to get things moving.

I attend the West Essex Regional and I do enjoy it very much. The academics are incredible. I have looked at other schools and their ratings on how well the students performed in testing and its noting compared to West Essex. The students at West Essex strive more for good grades because we have the ...  Read more

It is my very strong belief that the West Essex Regional School District is exceptionally overrated. Given the amount of money spent per student, the end result is a fairly poor product. Most of the students do go on to college. Morris County Community. The 'star school' rating is a farce. The emphasis ...  Read more

West Essex has some great teachers and many programs for the students to participate in. Although the teachers are usually very responsive to the needs and concerns of the students and their parents, the construction project has been handled very badly by the administration. Rather than working with ...  Read more
