Welcome to Western High School!
Welcome to the Western High School web site. As Principal, I believe you will find our website informative and a useful tool to gather information regarding Western High.
Western High School is an outstanding school where we are committed to the success of each of our students. Strong parental involvement in the education of their children is a vital component to our success. Working together, we are helping the children grow into readers, writers, creative thinkers, and problem solvers, as we prepare them for life in the 21st century.
Our school is a traditional high school with approximately 800+ students, in grades 9-12. The educators, support staff, and volunteers work together to provide an outstanding program where each student has an opportunity to achieve his or her potential in a safe and nurturing environment. Our School Improvement Plan guides our continuous school improvement efforts.
There are many ways for you to communicate with us. Our address, phone numbers, and email address are listed here on the website. We look forward to hearing from you regarding anything that can help us continue to thrive as an excellent school.
Have a great year!
Juuling...What is it & What does it mean to Juul?
The Juul, a trendy vape that resembles a flash drive and can be charged in a laptop’s USB port, accounted for 33% of the e-cigarette market as of late 2017, according to Wells Fargo data. The product is made for and legally available only to adults 18 and older, but in many cases, media reports suggest, these devices are being used by kids and teenagers even younger than that — leaving parents, educators and medical professionals concerned.
