It is the part of Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210, which also includes Lincoln-Way Central High School, Lincoln-Way East High School, and Lincoln-Way North High School. Students living within the Lincoln-Way boundaries of Liberty Junior High in New Lenox School District 122 and the Lincoln-Way boundaries of Union school district attend Lincoln-Way West.[4] The student body makeup is 53 percent male and 47 percent female, and the total minority enrollment is 11 percent. As of 2013, there are 1,280 students enrolled, with 66 full-time teachers, creating a 19:1 student to teacher ratio.[5]

Sitting on 100 acres, Lincoln-Way West is the largest site of the four high schools that comprise Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210. The principal of the school is Dr. Monica Schmidt.
