A Fresh Look for West High School
After spending more than a year working on this project, we are proud to announce a fresh look for West High School. Parents, students, teachers, and administrators have met over the past year to refresh the school's website, mascots, and logos. The results are stunning and reflect the strong traditions and history at West. At the same time, the new logos and mascots are designed for easy use in today's digital world.
