    I've had a son graduate from here and a daughter who is currently attending. I would recommend Wes-Del High School to anyone who is considering moving into this area. Small classes give a lot of individual attention. Honors classes are top notch--some even taught by part-time Ball State professors. If one is looking for academics this is the place to be. Sports are offered and Wes-Del girl's volleyball has been state runner-up and state champions in the 1A division in the past four years.
