West Hills Academy Student Performing Stand-up Comedy

One Step Closer – Bringing Joy to Others

Program: West Hills Academy
Campus: Huntington

This student always had an incredible sense of humor that is mature beyond his years. Prior to coming to West Hills, he had a history of struggling to balance his quick witted remarks with appropriate classroom behavior, often causing strife that he couldn’t understand. Our staff embraced his funny bone, but also helped guide him in learning the “right timing” to showcase his talent. He is now a role model for other students in his class and thriving both academically and socially. He also recently debuted his talents to the greater community in his first ever stand-up routine! We are so proud of his achievements – don’t forget us when you’re famous!!
