Welcome West High Families and Friends,

West Jessamine High School is a public high school that believes that our current and future students have a great deal to offer our county, state, and nation. For that reason, we challenge them academically, physically, and socially each day. We offer a variety of courses that encourage our students to be college and career ready by the time they graduate. In addition, we continually work to define what it means to be C.O.L.T.S. In doing so, we show C-haracter, O-wnership, L-eadership, T-eamwork, and S-uccess.

Our goal is to be a top 5 high school in the state of Kentucky. I know our students and our teachers and that gives me a great deal of confidence that this goal is in fact within our reach. Help us by supporting your students at home and supporting our teachers in the classroom. Education is a group effort and I encourage you as families and friends of West Jessamine High School to embrace the role you have in this process.

Thank you for entrusting us with your students each day. I speak for our staff when I say we appreciate the opportunity to mold these young men and women into the productive citizens they will soon become. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we can help you or your student at any point. We are looking forward to a great year at West High!
