West Point High School is a great school. They involve everyone and their parents, the school contacts the parents regularly. The academics offered here are wonderful. They have many extracurricular activities to choose from. Their art department is amazing. They win the math awards every year and go a long way with all the academic activities. They also do very well with their athletics program. The teachers at West Point do their very best to help every student in their classroom feel as safe as possible, as well as give them the best education possible. They also give one on one time with the students who ask for it. They make each and everyone of their students feel smart and important. In my eyes West Point High School is a wonderful school.
