West Haven School District has given me multiple opportunities in and out of the four buildings I attended growing up. With all the continuous helpful from teachers, principals, and counselors, I've gained knowledge and lessons I can use in the real world. Every student has the chance to grow and with the numerous help sources provided in the schools no one is felt alone or has to stress about anything.

I really do appreciate the diversity amongst the students and openness to appropriate change of the West Haven School District. Of course, the burden of the city's troublesome financial situations falls on the schools, to a very significant degree, but we do with what we have.
Great school! Offers a good variety of athletic programs and other clubs and activities for students.
