Philosophy Statement
The faculty and staff of Western High School believe that the school should provide those experiences and opportunities which will help students to develop as individuals who are well equipped to meet the challenges of everyday living in our increasingly complex society.

We believe that, in order to enhance this development, we must encourage individual responsibility and respect for others while maintaining an appropriate academic environment. We offer a diversified curriculum which recognizes the uniqueness of each student and which will encourage development of intellectual and artistic capabilities.

We believe that formal education is not the end of the process of learning but that education continues throughout life. Therefore, we believe in stressing the joys and rewards of learning through the application of skills and talents which can create an inquiring mind desiring ongoing growth.

The faculty of Western High School encourages students to take their places as responsible citizens in society.We believe that a positive self-concept is vital to the student's emotional and physical well-being and the student's attitude towards others. We further believe that the school and home should work together in helping students develop self-discipline. We recognize that obtaining the support of the community is essential to this effort.
