What Students Are Saying

2.92 Average Rating
An ideal place for students in the area to get a great head start on post high-school education. Comfortable atmosphere welcoming all ages of students, as well as a highly qualified faculty. Mason County is experiencing a lot of attention for its Arts, Music, and Culture lately, thanks in large part to West Shore's presence in the community.
