Athletic Philosophy
The program of Educational Athletics in West Ottawa Public Schools is an essential element of a student’s instructional experience. West Ottawa Athletics is a part of the district’s goal to make sure our graduates are “College, Career, and Life Ready.” It has been proven over time that when students are engaged in extracurricular activities their achievement level and pride in their school is increased. It is our goal to develop the whole student and we believe that Athletics provides experiences that cannot be duplicated in any other area of life.  Go WO
