I was their for my whole high school career but since I didn't grow up with them it was hard for them to accept me into their little groups. I had a great time once I joined the cheer team and got really involved in JROCT which I loved and wish I could still be in a group like that.

There are good things about Westside, like how the people in your "clique" are genuinely nice and loyal to you. There are also bad things, like: People in different cliques don't get along People are judgemental The teachers pick favorites Most of the preps are rude to minority students The school's budget is irresponsibly spent.
