We love Westchester. Our child was here from Kindergarden through 6th grade. She wanted to try a different school for middle school. A year and a half and she was ready to come right back to Westchester. She did not feel challenged at the other school nor did she feel that the teachers cared as much. The relationships between the kids and the teachers is the key. They are stellar teachers that genuinely care about the students.
Westchester is the best school at teaching my children. The classes are small, the teachers are dedicated and their teaching methods show in the utmost performance of the students.
Westchester has great academic program. The classes are small and the kids are close.
Westchester provides a well-rounded education where students learn to think for themselves, while enjoying the opportunity to be involved in a strong academic program as well as outstanding extracurricular opportunities. As a parent of two alumni and two current students, I have experienced first-hand the value of a Westchester education from many perspectives. I know that our students are well prepared to succeed in college and in life.
There is an incredible faculty-student-parent relationship at our school. It is open and honest and respectful.
Westchester is a diverse independent school that offers an excellent education. The faculty nurtures a zest for learning as they challenge students to think critically and to care about the world and the people around them. I am grateful that my children have an opportunity to learn multiple languages including Mandarin Chinese and to gain an appreciation for art as a part of their educational experience. I think a Westchester education prepares them to compete with anyone in the world. Westchester helps fulfill one of my responsibilities as a parent, and that is to provide my children with the best education available.
Love it! My kids have had a fabulous experience here. Teachers are stellar, as well as the administration. Like having a second family!
We love Westchester. My son started two months into the school year, and he truly loves the school. Westchester has provided him with a exceptional academic, fun-filled and social environment. The staff has been extremely helpful and supportive since our first visit to the school. We are looking forward to having two kids at Westchester next year.
I love this school because of the small number of students in the classrooms. My son has a better chance to succeed at school getting the personal attention he needs and deserves.
Incredible teachers, advanced academically, wonderful extracurricular options, safe and nurturing environment
We love WCDS for so many reasons, the enthusiasm of and for the school, the love and care they show the students, the campus, the academics, the athletics, the arts, the faculty, the respect...We love WCDS b/c our child loves WCDS! (as does his little brother who will be a kindergarten wildcat next year!)
Wonderful teachers! Dedicated staff! Devoted volunteers! My children are so happy at WCDS!!!
fabulous teachers, great kids, nurturing atmosphere, fun athletics, impressive college admissions
My daughter is in the 10th grade and has been at WCDS since Kindergarten. I would not change a thing. The Best School and Teachers in the area.
WCDS is family! Our kids are very well rounded and confident. Adjusting to middle school this year has been a breeze!
The campus is beautiful. The staff is excellent and kind. The children truly thrive in this environment.
I think Weschester is a great school it try to encourage the kids to do in school so that they can be successful in life.
The school focuses on learning and making it fun in the process - at WCDS it's cool to be smart! The smaller classes allow for more interaction between the teacher and the students as well as between students. They have great sports programs and extra curricular activities that enhance the fun learning experience. Our son moved over to WCDS in 6th grade so we ve been there for 3 years now. We wish we had moved him sooner!
Our son spent k-12 at WCDS. Small classes and the oportunity to interact with teachers gave him the confidence to be successful in college and beyond!
