Dear Student,

Welcome to Arvada West High School, home of the Wildcats!

You are joining a proud tradition of excellence as you embark on your final years of K-12 education. Your time at Arvada West will prove to be both challenging and rewarding as you explore the many opportunities available to you here at our school. In these rapidly changing times, with ever more demands on your time and attention, I encourage you to develop strong study and time management habits and take advantage of the many supports available to ensure successful outcomes for yourself. Additionally, take the time to get to know the many professionals in our building that will assist you on your educational journey and never hesitate to seek assistance from any one of them.

Success in high school requires thoughtful planning and commitment. Hard work, regular attendance and engaging in your learning are integral to a positive experience. Challenge yourself to become a strong self-advocate and take responsibility for your own education. This is the time to seek new challenges and explore the many courses, clubs, activities and sports important to our school community. Show your Wildcat Pride through community engagement.

We look forward to getting to know you and providing the best possible education so that when you leave us in four short years you are well prepared for the next stage of your life.

Wildcat Proud! Wildcat Strong!

Mr. Micah Porter, Principal
