I was enrolled in the West Hartford Public Schools my entire school career, starting off at Florence E. Smith STEM School and received an intensive, quality and interactive education that I will never forget. I moved up to King Phillip Middle School and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I ended my career at William H. Hall High School where I received knowledge needed for out-of-school success and college preparatory classes that challenged me and my mind to think deeper and beyond the known. WHPS is a district that is once in a lifetime and is a district I can recommend forever! You won't regret it!
I have really enjoyed my time at all the schools in the west hartford school district! The teachers for the most part have been excellent and very qualified. It is a very diverse town and does not discriminate at all!
