Change in Administration
We want to congratulate Mark McQuade on being named principal at Wilson Middle School. Wilson’s gain is certainly our loss as Mark brought a skill set to the Activities Director position that allowed him to contribute to West High School in many ways.
Mark and his family have been Appleton West Terrors for many years and will continue to be a part of the Appleton West Community as Mark educates our future Terrors.
We are pleased to announce that Jim McClowry has been hired as our new Activities Director. Mr. McClowery comes to West with eleven years of very successful experience as an activities director. He spent three years at Oshkosh Lourdes, seven years at Sun Prairie High School, and one year at Kaukauna High School.
Innovative School/Business Partnership
Community First CU and the Appleton Area School District have been working
together since 1996 on a collaborative effort to address a lack of financial
literacy among young people in Wisconsin and nationwide. This innovative
school/business partnership led to the development and introduction of a unique
education program to provide ongoing financial education and hands-on learning
opportunities for district students.

West High School is committed to ensuring the safety of each and every student and adult associated with our school. Many instances arise where a student may be aware of a dangerous and/or illegal situation or bullying and/or harassment they are uncomfortable with, but do not know what to do about reporting the situation. West has developed the following procedure for allowing for student reporting in a confidential manner. The form below is provided for the reporting of any problem or situation that you may be aware of. Students or parents may complete the form. These situations may take place either in school or out of school. Please provide as much information as you can so that the problem can be addressed appropriately.
