School Official Point of View

I am entering my second year being involved with Westminster School and can say it is a labor of love for the teachers, parents, staff, and administrators. To a person, they all seem committed to providing an outstanding classical education.

A traditional and enriched program from K to 8 will leave you wishing it would go until 12th grade. I have put 2 kids through this school. I believe that if the school discipline is combined with home structure, it ll lead to a well trained young adult ready to tackle challenges in life. I experienced it with my older child. She and her classmates still are visibly different, when observed among their peers from other schools. Their Westminster experience has clearly helped them raise a notch higher than others in behavior and conduct as well as academics. The majority of teachers and school administration will become an integral part of the student s life, and their teachings will remain with them forever. This is a school focused on the whole person, createing a well rounded individual, as opposed to just certain aspects of a child.

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.

Westminster prepares kids for life - long term. The education creates an environment that breeds articulate, confident, and charismatic students.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
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.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
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.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


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

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
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.
