I really like the school and the staff


Posted April 10, 2005

I have been most fortunate to have had my son to attend Westminster Academy since pre-k. The teachers are excellent and seem happy to work there. I have observed that the school staff tries to communicate with parents and seem very interested in the well being of the children. It is true that the parking my be a little difficult at times. It the responsibility of the citizens to obey the law and park thier vehiciles appropriately. It is not the responsibility of the school principal to ticket people. I have noticed signs that state ' No Parking' however I do see the same people violating the law without any remorse. C.A.

My daughter has attended Westminster Acadamy since Pre- K. The classes have kept her interested in learning and she has made great strides in reading and math while in First Grade. While the food leaves much to be desired( We send lunches) the parking for pick up and drop off is horrendous. The parents whose children don't take the bus double and triple park on Westminster Ave. and make it so difficult to find a parking space. They need a better system!

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.
