2013 Newsweek’s Best School

Kansas Senator Moran recently visited West after we were listed in Newsweek’s 2013 America’s Best Public Highschools. The article included schools that provided students with the opportunity to experience various areas of study in preparation for college. Our signature program, Biotechnology, helps students develop research skills that may assist them in future scientific careers. The senator visited to get more of an idea where the states education budget should go. Moran saw our Biotech program as a great example of how our education system can support and sustain growth in Kansas’s bioscience industry. Out of 2,000 we were ranked 1,749. Good job West!
