Last school year WIHS achieved High Growth (state measure) and met AYP (annual yearly progress, NCLB-Federal). West was the only high school achieve this in Iredell-Statesville Schools. Two of our EOC (end-of-course) tested areas, Algebra II and Physical Science were the highest in the district. These achievements are attributed to our outstanding staff and academically focused students.
We are continuing to try and help students achieve their goals here at WIHS. If our students are successful, our school is successful.
Fighting at our school went down from last year by over 30%, state reportable offenses dropped from 15 to 8, and our attendace rate increased to over 95%, which was the second highest amoung the high schools in our district. Our drop out rate continues to decrease with last year being 3%. Our graduation rate went from 75% to 82%.
