West Theater Presents

A hapless floral assistant is an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant that feeds on blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, smart mouthed, R&B
singing carnivore who offers fame and fortune, revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! The music, composed in the style of early 1960's rock and roll, doo-wop, and early Motown, includes the well known
tunes, "Skid Row" (Downtown)"& "Somewhere That's Green".

Innovative School/Business Partnership

Cick icon for more inormation.

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.


Congratulations to the Appleton West Science Team for capturing first place at the 2014 Department of Energy Regional Science Bowl. This win qualifies them for the National Science Bowl held in Washington, DC in April.

Seniors!! Graduate with a Smile!

West High School and the Partnership Community Health Center have teamed up to bring a smile to students this school year. Starting in the fall semester, seniors eligible for free and reduced hot lunch can be enrolled in our NEW dental program. Once you are signed up, you will travel by chaperoned school bus from West to our dental clinic on 5337 Grande Market Drive for a check-up and exam.

Students will get personalized dental care and learn about taking care of their teeth. To make it easy and convenient, , this will happen during the school day. We will make sure that they don’t miss much class time or afterschool programs and sports.

This program is at NO COST to eligible families with Medicaid coverage or enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program.

NOTE: Program will start with eligible members of the senior class and then spread to all students in the school over the school year.

Healthy kids make the grade and we want your smile to show it.
