We had a very disappointing year at Westminster after transferring from a public school. It was very cliquey and not inclusive to new kids or parents. The school was very uninvolved and not accepting of learning style differences even with a bright motivated student. When we withdrew the school did not reach out at all to find out why and how our experience at the school was. They were only concerned about remaining tuition. On top of that our child was behind academically when returning to public school.

My wife substituted there today as she has before. She was teaching 6th grade Spanish and her third hour class refused to do anything they were supposed to do. They would not even respond when she was calling attendance. The students apparently have a certain sense of entitlement and can do as they please without consequence. My wife was scheduled to substitute again next week, but unfortunately has to decline as she does not feel comfortable in the current environment that exists at Westminster.

Excellent school. Outstanding teachers, leadership, parents and students. Consistently the best PreK-8 educational experience in Oklahoma City.

Excellent school! It was our first year and my kids just excelled. They are so excited about learning. It is summer and they miss their school. They love their teachers and made new friends. The school encourages students to think and work well with others. The school is teaching students to become problem solvers at a young age. It is not focused solely on doing more home work and believing more work is better. In my opinion, there is no perfect school. However, if you are looking for, academic excellence, impeccable social skills and a friendly environment for your student, I beat you will find it at Westminster in Oklahoma City.

If you have a self starter, great school. But if your child has any special needs, this is not the place for you. No communication just not welcome back. After they preach how important communication is. I emailed a staff member and no call back just a short email. But I think if you take out your checkbook, they will bend over backwards for you. Just glad I didn't give the substantial donation I was going to give. A horrible failure for my extra special child.

I strongly disagree with the parent who wrote that they do not help children with ADHD. My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and is not on medication. Her teachers are aware of this and have assisted us with many behavioral interventions and have sought to help develop talents that give her confidence to work through challenges. We communicate through email almost weekly and they have assisted us with study skills. My daughter is still easily distracted but reads at a 12th grade level and is making A's and B's. Communication is key; if you work with your teaching team they will help you. If you feel this is not the case, I know Mrs. Waldo or Mrs. Regens are there to help. Best of luck to you. We adore Westminster School!

They really should reconsider their rules limiting kindergarten child's birthdays. Seem very fond of stifling rules there!

School doesn't offer anything for kids with ADHD or needs an iep. The will fail and teachers don't care.

My son looks forward to school every day, tells anyone who asks that he loves it! He is learning things I don't even know, and hes only 6! His teacher gave me her personal cell before the school year started and has never ignored my calls :) She talks as long as I need to and always tells me how wonderful and amazing my son is. What mom doesn't love to hear that? Plus, I know he feels exactly the same way about her. Love love love this school
