Most dysfunctional high school in Greensboro. Do yourself a favor and do not send your children here.You've been warned.

My son is a student in the A.P. Academy at Western High. This is an outstanding program in a top-notch school. We bought our current house in order to be in the Kernodle Middle School district (it had just been named among the top 100 middle schools in the nation). Gaining the new AP Academy in our districted high school last year was just a bonus. Guilford County has many magnet programs and this one received the most applications last year. The principal at Western High is the best I've ever seen. He truly cares about each student and he advocates on their behalf. Mr. Kashubara attracts great teachers who are committed to excellence in the classroom. As a U.Va. grad, I was looking for a school with a strong track record among both in-state and out of state college admissions officers. Western High is among the top three high schools in the county in this regard.

Just moved to the district and have heard terrific things! Previous students spoke highly of the school and articulated their points clearly.

The Math department at Western has been struggling for the past few years, which is apparent in the school's well below par math scores. Pre-calculus, calculus and statistics classes desperately need much more qualified teachers. The school has the students with interest and motivation, but the Math department has yet to find good teachers. French 4 is a joke and the students teach themselves in the back of the classroom during a lower level class. The English, Social Studies and History departments are strong. This is a school with a very diverse population, ethnically and socioeconomically, so we struggle for the resources to meet the needs of our diverse population.
