West End Alternative

​​"I went to a few other high schools in the past, but West End stood out most to me.  This is because the teachers make the school a really great place.  If it weren't for them, I thoroughly wouldn't enjoy coming to school."

"I came to WestEnd Alternative at the beginning of this year to improve my grades. I I'm looking toward a career in screenwriting, so I took the Reel Program and the WestEnders writing program. I saw how much I had improved as a filmmaker in the space of one semester. "
