I have one son at West Seneca East now and another that will enter next year. The school offers many programs for him to flourish in from service-driven pursuits to athletics, to one of the highest level music programs in the state. He takes part in all of these things which doesn't leave a lot of free time but provides him with exactly what teenagers need: the ability to discover who they are at a formative age. Culturally I wish the setting was a bit more diversified, but I guess you can't have everything.
