The Al-Qaeda all around the school cause problems every day. They come into disputes with some cartel agents as well. One day, some members of the church of Scientology began attempting mass conversion. That was the day when 30 kids were severely injured as the Al-Qaeda agents blew up.

My child is very uncomfortable with the school. It's incredibly overcrowded and teachers care little to none about student safety. We had a similar problem with her brother-and decided to send him to the nearby catholic high school. A good investment, for sure. Will most likely be transferring our daughter ...  Read more

There's SO many AMAZING things that I can rant on about this school. The kind and loving teachers helped me graduate at the top of my class with all honors. (and yes I am African American, not that it really matters.) I love this school and all the great opportunities and extracurricular activities it ...  Read more

I can no longer work at this school, my co workers seem to have hope but I have lost all. I have only a hand full of students in all of my 5 classes who care about success.

The staff and teachers have such a positive attitude and have a vested interest in their students. West Potomac is a Academy school which gives students the opportunity ...  Read more

There is good reason why this school gets a bad rap -- it's a bad school! The school is overcrowded and full of juvenile delinquents. As a result, the staff has become totally desensitized when it comes to caring for the kids or looking out for their needs. My son switched from West Po to Mt. Vernon ...  Read more

West Po is a GREAT school! The upperlevel classes that are offered are both accomodating and challenging to the students. It's extremely centered around bettering the student so that by the time they graduate they are a well-rounded individual. Every hallway has dozens of posters and information about ...  Read more

West Potomac can sometimes get a bad rep. However, let's first put some things into context: It's a Fairfax County school. A Fairfax county school will beat any private school in the Northern Virginia area by leaps and bounds. FFX county public schools are top 10 in the nation. Also, there are great ...  Read more
