To the Booster Club: I paid for 2 tx to the pancake breakfast and the wait was 45 minutes mininum. You were able to take my money, but no breakfast was eaten. The campus was full with busloads of people and huge lines. Also as for the other donation of $20 for coupons, they only work if there are two people using them. Another bum donation. Good thing you got cash from me, cuz I want my money back. Support should work both ways. I'm writing cuz I have yet to receive any phone call back.

I'm not sure about the first two reviewers, but I actually attended this high school. This system they have is one of the better systems when it comes to educations. The teachers are excellent with the exception of one or two which all schools have. The campus is beautiful and clean. From my own personal experiances this is a much better choice then any other local high schools.

PROS: good education
CONS: none

Ordinarily, antiquities hold a high magnitude of value to the public - primarily for the sake of nostalgia. Unfortunately, such nostalgia should be restricted to the useless hole-in-the-wall pawn shops and eBay - certainly not a High School.

Technology, or lack there of, at West High is deplorable. After having spent a semester at this institution some time ago, myself as well as fellow students were dismayed at how far behind our school was compared to our rivals. While studying World History (this was 1996) we were taught not of the Democratic Russia, but of the 'present day USSR' ( our text books were circa 1985).

The food, like most high schools, was awful, and the staffing was slim to none. As another reviewer mentioned, they couldn't even afford Kleenex (or any other generic substitute, for that matter).

Of all annoyances, however, the greatest was their incompetent administrative staffing. Often, I felt myself going to the Torrance District Office to resolve my teacher / class conflicts.

Do your future a favor and instead transfer to Redondo Union High School (look for my review).

Although the API scores may seem higher than other institutions, its not because of the teachers. The students are all self driven and have learned not to trust the faculty.

PROS: Great Location
CONS: Read the review, everything!

California is facing a deficit so the school couldn't even afford Kleenex for us and they would charge a ridiculous amount for food though the quality of the food was quite low. The teachers are also horrible - they were as uneducated in their topics as their students. The students also lacked school spirit, though that would partly be because the school's lack of enouragement for it. The only thing special about West High would probably be the people you meet.
