Welcome to West Ottawa High School!

Located near the shores of Lake Michigan, West Ottawa High School serves a diverse student body within a wonderfully supportive community. A comprehensive high school of 2330 students in grades 9-12, West Ottawa is able to offer the largest selection of educational opportunities of any West Michigan school. These opportunities include 20 Advanced Placement courses, 15 International Baccalaureate courses within the IB Diploma Program, as well as nearly 200 course selections among eight elective and four core departments. This vast array of educational opportunities sets us apart from other high schools in Ottawa County.

We know academic success can be highly correlated with extra-curricular involvement. Students at West Ottawa are encouraged to participate in one of the more than 30 extracurricular clubs and organizations on our campus. We also are members of the highly competitive OK Red Athletic Conference and support 28 inter-varsity sports. West Ottawa’s performing and fine arts programs are continually recognized for their excellence at local, state, and national competitions.

Our high school campus consists of two 9-12 buildings on over 60 acres of green space. Students often travel between buildings for classes, providing a small “college-like” atmosphere. In fact, Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) also hosts college courses on our campus throughout the year. Our close proximity to Hope College, Grand Valley State University, Davenport University, Kendall College of Art and Design, as well as GRCC, provides many dual enrollment college credit opportunities for our students.
