This school has such a wide variety of extracurricular varying from Field band to football, to tennis to drama. The academics are also very wide spread. Each High school student has a chance to accumulate up to 24 MVCC credits by the time they graduate. The business programs are very well put together and the faculty is very well organized. Of course every school has their little quirks but overall, very good school to attend!

School for the most part is adequate. In my opinion way to much emphasis is placed on sports over academics. Administration also refuses to address and work towards solutions for special requests of students for courses offered by other school districts that are unable at Westmoreland,

This is a great school. The technology is far ahead of the technology in surrounding school districts. There are so many AP and MVCC courses available that a student can come out the school with a semester's worth of college credit! The principal and teachers are terrific.
