    Food: I am probably the worst person to judge West's food options because I rarely stray away from my pizza, a bag of chips, and some cookies. However, many cafeteria workers have offered me salads and healthy wraps that look really appetizing so I may try one sometime.

    Administration & Policies: Although I am not a big fan of the dress code, I must say that it is one of the most reasonable I have experienced.

    Sports & Fitness: West students are so involved in sports such as football season. Even if you don't know anything about football or if the idea of physical activity terrifies you; you'll feel welcome at West home games.

    Teachers: The teachers here are great and easily available to talk to if you have a question or had trouble with homework.

    Extracurriculars: West offers a variety of extracurricular activities for everybody. Some clubs are better represented in the student body than others ,but otherwise, I believe the amount and diversity of the after-school activities are amazing.
