Westhill is a great school! The AP classes are amazing that they have. The administration is tight, so you shouldn't worry much about it.

The school is filled with thugs that roam and deface the halls, do drugs, and are disrespectful to everyone around them. Security is a joke and the administration isn't much better. No one does anything to improve the school climate. If you're in honors or AP classes, the experience is much better, and those are pretty much the only kids that participate in the extra curriculars. Unfortunately, they have to suffer with the trash that surrounds them.
