“The Think Gold program is a school-wide effort to improve student academic achievement at West High School.  Believing that all students can be successful academically, the faculty set out to create a school-wide achievement culture where students are motivated to work hard to learn.  The Think Gold program strategically validates and responds to individual student academic success by recognizing student achievement.”
