Westbrook teachers are wonderful and the new facility is incredibly modern. Having a school focused on early learners is a huge advantage. My children had a fantastic experience at this school and their early reading and math skills are advanced thanks to the outstanding education they received.

Mixed review! Loved the teachers at Westbrook but unfortunately the quality of the entire program there has gone downhill in the past couple of years. Public battle within administration did not add anything positive to the experience. Teacher & parent morale has gone way down. Preschool program recently changed - not necessarily for the better. Glad we are now done with Westbrook.

Westbrook was a euphoric experience. The school is run on a loving and effective system of Friendly teachers, amazing resources, and knowledgeable programs to help all students learn. Our son attended for kindergarden and we were truly blessed to have moved across the street and stumbled into this school. I was concerned about the lack of diversity, especially since he is an only child, but I learned when kids are this young, they don't notice it--they only see everyone as a friend. I only wished the school went beyond preschool. My son, who is a first grader now in a different district, still fondly talks about his Westbrook teachers and plays with the crafts he made in his before/after school programs. Parents have lots of opportunity to get involved with the school also which helps the home/school connection. I can't thank them enough. Great Job to all!

Preschool teachers need to provide better accomodations for special needs children to better facilitate inclusion.

We have had a great experience at Westbrook School. The school has excellent programs and there is a high level of parent involvement. It is a great place for young children to begin their academic journey. The teachers seem very caring and the principal takes a genuine interest in the students.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
