Westminster School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Teachers are very tuned in to a student's needs and work with the student and the parent to address any situation. I have seen the school go above and beyond in this area on many occasions.

Students are daily encouraged to live by these core values. Honesty and Integrity are critical components of this.

Westminster School provides not only a superior academic education but an excellent all around foundation that prepares a student for the future . The entire program focuses on developing the whole student (not just the academic component). All students participate in plays and musical events annually and are encouraged in arts and sports. The recent 8th grade play (South Pacific) had many 8th graders performing outstanding singing solos. Truly Westminster is an amazing place for your child to grow and excel.

The staff care immensely about their students. You will often see teachers on the phone calling parents. Administration is extremely supportive of teachers. They are willing to assist in way that they can.

The students at this school are the most respectful students I have ever witnessed. All students want to learn and are motivated to do so.

This is the biggest message that is conveyed by this school. Students are taught to be respectful from day one by standing to greet adults. Students know their expectations and boundaries are clearly set.

Westminster is an excellent school with incredible values. The school values respect and responsibility and this is carried throughout the entire building. Children receive a consistent message and discipline is handled the same through every classroom. This helps students with expectations since they have the same rules since kindergarten. Instruction is able to start within the first week of school because not as much time is needed to review procedures and routines. The small class sizes provide an incredible learning environment for every child. Teachers are really able to learn about their students and speak easily on strengths and weaknesses. The staff truly cares about the students at this school and they are willing to do anything to provide the best education for them. The students leave this school as respectful, well-rounded citizens.

The school does not realize that there are various types of learners out there, and everyone does not learn best through memorization and regurgitation.

Westminster School
Amount of homework: Too much

The students are inundated with homework from every subject every single weeknight. Children are up for hours trying to read, write, and research. It is beyond overwhelming for both parents and their children.
