    Alumni After students graduate from high school, they usually miss their school, their friends, and their teachers. So after these Topeka West graduates went to college, they came back to teach. The school has changed since they were students here.The covering over the walkways, while in the original plan for the school, were not added until recently. We didnt have any awnings, Charles Thomson, ELC, said. You just got rained on or snowed on. The canopies are not the only things that have been added. Before the classroom behind the auditorium was added to A Building, the students knew the large, grassy, area that stretched from the Caf to the library as the hill. Pep assemblies were held there on nice days, and the students could eat lunch there. Everyone would be on the hill,Liz Fisher, Gear-Up, said. Kids would be doing somersaults on it. We lived on the hill. Granted, there were not as many students attending Topeka West as there are now. There was not a freshman class. There were only sophomores, juniors, and seniors on the campus until 1980. Students would still be at middle school for their freshman year, and come to high school as sophomores. Topeka West did not have a tardy system either. We have really firmed up on attendance and tardies,Shari Waters, associate principal, explained. Everyone used to be responsible for themselves; it was really up to the teachers. But the teachers had high expectations; you needed to be there.
