Teachers at West Forsyth are amazing! They all have different teaching styles which keeps the students engaged throughout the school day. If students are struggling in a class they will help the student by staying extra hours before or after work. But in order for them to help students, students must speak to them before, after, or during class or emailing. At West we have some teachers straight out of college, some that have their Masters degree, or even their PhD so they are all very well knowledgeable. Grading my take awhile because of the large number of students that attend the school but we get grades back in a timely manner.

This school is super good. The teacher here make teaching in a fun way ! They never have you bored no matter what they have a fun way to teach the course. Many teacher here always offer you their help! Even if you don't needed their always offering really awesome. The campus is a really nice place, its big open space ! Walk a lot but it helps exercise. Our athletes including my self we work hard for what we have accomplished and not just is ! Everyone at the school works hard to get to where we are at right now ! We're second in the state and we are working hard to get to #1

West Forsyth has a great athletic program and its evident through the massive parent and student support. There is an amazing music program. There are a lot of AP classes and opportunities to challenge yourself academically and there are lots of different clubs and organizations to get into. If there isn't something for you, it's a simple process to get one started!
