West Lake Junior High School was built in 1964. The school is located in the heart of West Valley City. The school has 64 classrooms, including 8 relocatable classrooms and a Parent and Family Center. West Lake is a Title 1 school and receives additional funding from Highly Impacted Schools and Safe Passages II. These grants allow West Lake to reduce class size, offer after-school and summer programs, and additional opportunities for our students, faculty, and community. Students come from many parts of the world, creating a rich diversity amongst our student body. A majority of the school staff is ESL endorsed and/ or trained in Sheltered English Strategies.
West Lake serves approximately 1,100 students in grades 7-9.

Computers and technology
West Lake has a computer network system that is accessed by every classroom in the building. The Media Center is a central lab that can be used by all students for research, access to online information, and many other library systems. The school has a series of labs throughout the building designed for enhancing curriculum and testing purposes. We have three laptop computer carts (with wireless Internet access) that teachers can check out and use in their classroom. West Lake has a small studio where student video broadcasts are created and shown during the morning announcements. We have grades, attendance and student information on the Internet for parents. Parents can come to the Parent and Family Center to access their student’s grade and attendance information and to take various classes such as Computer Skills, English Language, Parenting, and Relaxation. We have an extensive summer school schedule and after school programs.
Students promoted from West Lake will attend Granger High School.
