West High School
There was only one public Davenport high school for the first 100 years. But then along came the baby boomers and the need for a second high school. In the fertile fields on the west edge of Davenport, a new high school arose: “Davenport West High School.” While not yet totally completed, the doors were opened to students on the Tuesday after Labor Day 1960!
The school’s cafeteria was remodeled in 2006 to bring it to a style similar to the food court style being used by Davenport North High School, which received national recognition when it was featured on ABC’s 20-20
The library was moved from the upstairs of the building to the main level into a newly renovated media center in 2001. The new library has four computer labs as well.
The building offices were remodeled in 2001 as well as the main entrance.
(Due to the recent addition of this school, we have only the short history of this singular school. For more detailed information about courses and sports, please visit Central)
