Who We Are


For several years the West Band Booster Club has been behind the scenes raising money for the band to provide food on trips, scholarships, and so much more. The boosters also help during games and performances. If you have a band student (any grade 6th-12th) please join the boosters!


Mark Dorsey and Matt Reilly are two of the best band directors to be found anywhere and are both dedicated to the betterment of each student’s musicianship and growth in the band. Their leadership is paving the way to a bright future for the West band program at middle and high school levels.


The West High School (and Middle School) band students are hard-working and determined performers who practice tirelessly to be better musicians and performers – whether it’s on the field marching or in a concert setting. The Pride of West is just that, and the students live up to that nomenclature.

Want To Help?

We need volunteers to work the concession stand at football games and various events.

2017 Area Finalists

The Pride of West marching band competed in Groesbeck for Regionals on October 21, 2017, and advanced to the Area competition on October 28, 2017, at Midway's Panther Stadium. The band finished 4th in the preliminaries and for the first time since 2000 advanced to the finals of the Area competition where they finished 6th out of 10 bands and just missed advancing to the State competition. The video here is from the 2016 marching season - we will have this year's performance soon.
