Westchester Area School is an excellent place for children to learn and live christian principles. The teachers are honorable and caring and do a superb job of wholistic education of head, heart and hand. This is a school for children whom you genuinely care about and want to prepare for life. With strong support from church and parents, Wetschester Area School continues to turn out progressive citizens each year. Our four children have been there from age 3 and our eldest starts her eighth successful year this coming fall.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
