Most commonly used on a day-to-day basis as a place to eat during lunch by the students, the cafeteria is the less-shiny rhinestone beside the main jewel on West Shore’s crown. Inside the cafeteria, one can find rows upon rows of tables, 3 lunch lines, and a table or two attended by parent volunteers looking to sell something, amongst other things. In the mornings, waifish students with nowhere else to turn can be found in the cafeteria, huddled into small groups with the rest of their cliques.

The cafeteria also serves as the area for middle school and small-scale high school dances. These dances are usually heavily monitored and chaperoned, and pretty much the only reason for attending them is for the free, unlimited candy.

During the summer between the (we don't talk about this year)-2017 & 2017-2018 school years, the cafeteria was remodeled. Instead of being a big room with a bunch of hard, uncomfortable benches, it now resembles a much larger version of a McDonald's dining area with different colors.
