Good school however many teachers lack care for their students. My child has a couple she loves and have guided her amazingly through her 4 yr high school journey. The rest however sadly could care less about the kids or the lessons and studies they teach. That is a big downside to this school.

This is a school that does not work towards the betterment of students. Most teachers are not there because they care about helping students, they're there for the large salary. As an alum, I could see that if a student was not "smart" they wouldn't even bother with them. My brother was not the brightest student and not one of his teachers ever reached out to my parents personally or my brother about help. I feel like the teachers here see no potential in their students and do absolutely nothing to help them. My sister goes to a different high school and wow what a difference. She receives an endless amount of support from faculty there. This school has a LOT to work on. Begin by hiring faculty that actually care about students and aren't just there for the money.

Incredible students, teachers and a great principal! AP school district of the year in the entire country 3 years ago.

My two children go to West Leyden. They have ample opportunities to join clubs, sports and even volunteer programs. The school offers honors and AP classes. I am not sure why the reviews are low, but your child needs to have the drive to succeed because if they can't handle high school they won't make it to or even through college. You get into your education what you put into it, if your child is lazy then they won't go far.
