West High School. I really really really really really really really really really really like!!!

Posted by a other on 06/16/14

What makes West so special? First, it's the most diverse school in Knoxville. Students have friends from other cultures, other races, other social classes. It makes them more tolerant and better able to understand the real world, not the "white" student body that most Knoxville schools have. Second, ...  Read more

I currently have 2 children attending West right now, and I have nothing but good things to say about it! They offer so many challenging AP and honors classes, and the faculty is wonderful.

Not only for rich and gifted kids. In fact, we are working class and my child had severe problems. West High School was the only school in Knox County that was concerned for my daughter enough to eventually have her diagnosed with a form of autism. No school or teacher had ever bothered before. The classes ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. This year they introduced two new exams in algebra II and English III. Students must pass the algebra I, English II and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
