Greeley west high school, might be not the best school to attend. This school is not the prettiest, nor the one with highest SAT scores. This school has given be many opportunities and has open the door for the path of being success. There is something unique about here. Greeley west makes me feel that I actually belong here, this place reminds me of home. My last three years in this school, have made me realize that there is someone out there caring for you, someone that wants to see you progress by going to college and becoming someone in life. From here I also love the diversity of students. When I enter Greeley west everyone treats you good it's like if you knew them from a while ago. Lastly I love it's programs that Greeley west provides for students like AVID and IB, in here you gets close and become a family with all students. Greeley west high school is special for many reasons, nothing can replace it in me. Love Greeley West high school.

My experience at Greeley West has been the best. I always get to interact with different people everyday and the diversity there makes it even better. From my experience I can tell that our school is very accepting of different races and we treat each other as equals. The teacher are always willing to help and to add to that some of the teacher can be very nice and they don't scare you off. Overall my experience there is the best I meet new people because of the population, my friends are great, the teachers are great, and I just love the environment I get to be in everyday.

Most teacher are very passionate about teaching us and you can tell because of their willingness to tutor and give one on one help for kids. The administration is also very involved and passionate. They are supportive at every game they attend! Even though our school is a little low on funding, our school spirit shines though all we do!
