Forty-nine percent of the students who attend West-area elementary, middle and high schools qualify for free or reduced lunch.  That's over 3,000 students.

ACT says the MOST predictable indicator of post-high school success is a student's involvement in extra-curricular activities.  Additionally, students who participate in after school activities have better grades and attendance, are more likely to graduate and are less likely to use drugs.
