    Overall Experience: The kids are good, the ones I've met. The problem is the lack of parent involvement either academically or athletically. I see the same parents out all the time. At least the football games are busy, like it's usually is, but for other sports or academics, not much parent involvement.

    Overall Experience: The school spirit definitely went up in the past year. I loved most of the people that I met, and I definitely made two life long friends from here.

    Overall Experience: The people within the school are really the only things worth it. The campus is nice, but the overall structure of GWHS leaves much to be desired. Every time there is snow or rainfall buckets are placed around the school in order to collect the water. The school could just be structurally improved. We do not have enough desks for all students either

    Overall Experience: Greeley West provides students with the resources to go beyond the norm in academics, arts, and athletics. It is nationally recognized as an Avid Demonstration School as well as a member of the International Baccalaureate Program. There is a Newcomers Program which is devoted to helping immigrants become accustomed to the United States. Greeley West is the best school to learn about the world around you, challenge yourself, and be surrounded with people who push you to reach your full potential. I would choose to be a part of Greeley West's International Baccalaureate Program a hundred times if I had to do it over again. Challenging myself with such amazing, intellectual individuals was the best decision I have ever made.

    Sports & Fitness: Athletics are popular amongst students to participate yet the entire school population has no school spirit. This problem could be contributed to lack of diversity on the teams, good instructors, and poor school conditions. The athletic facilities are extremely poor. Greeley West doesn't even have a pool for their swim team, they have to go to a local middle school for practice. There is no really no football field, or place to practice. The students even have to run around the parking lot if they choose to be in a gym class, there is no track. Overall, it's not a place you want to do your athletic activities at.
