Pushes you to do your best academically, athletically, and socially. You learn a lot and get hands-on experiences that you can not get at a public schools or many other private schools. A close community, where you know your teachers by their first names only. You are able to participate in many extra-curricular activities and meet diverse people. I got the best education I will ever get here. It's very unique and fun, and more difficult than college. (But definitely worth it). People say that the people you meet in college, you will be friends with them forever, but my forever friends are from Westover.
