Westminster School provided an excellent education for my child, who went on to high school with superior academic and personal preparation. The school emphasizes a classical education, meaning a well thought out, challenging curriculum in all the subjects plus an emphasis on the basics: clear thinking, reading for depth, being able to speak and write clearly, study skills, self-reliance, perseverance, and pride in his work--all crucially important to long-term success in school and work. But the school gave much more than this. It also provided a nurturing environment for my son as a developing individual. He was known and cared for by all the staff, expected to exercise good character and good manners, and given myriad opportunities in athletics, art, drama, music, outdoor adventures, and many enriching field trips. By the time of graduation, he had discovered a lot about himself, his deepest interests, and his own ability to make his dreams come true. That's a lot to receive from your elementary and middle school education. It wasn't always easy to come up with the tuition, but what a golden investment it has proven to be!
