History

Joliet West was originally constructed in 1964, one year after its identical sister school Joliet East, and has since been added on to 4 times. The first addition, completed in the early 1980s, added a bookstore to the cafeteria, additional space around the maintenance area, a multi-purpose room by the gymnasiums (primarily used for dance and wrestling), six additional classrooms, and a greenhouse.The second and third additions were completed as two consecutive projects, adding several additional classrooms, a new band room, cafetorium, conference room, dean's offices, and student commons area.From 1964-1994, Joliet West competed for many conference, regional, sectional, and state championships. In 1994, Central and West combined athletic teams. The Steelman became the mascot of both schools. However, with the passing of a referendum, JTHS was able to completed its fourth addition and construct fieldhouses at both campuses. Due to the fieldhouse additions and massive amounts of time and effort by JTHS administrators and staff, JTHS have been able to reinstitute athletic programs at both campuses. During the 2008 - 2009 school year, Central and West began to divide the schools athletic programs, beginning with Freshmen team sports. During the 2010 - 2011 school year, Joliet Central and Joliet West had their own, entirely independent, sports programs.  Both schools will compete in the Southwest Suburban Conference.
