Westford Public Schools Reviews

Westford Public Schools is a reputable district in which I have always attended. Overall, the teachers are professional, educated, and kind to the students. While being pushed to our full potential, the school system educates on mental health and has counselors available to any student. As an incoming senior, I would change the way all people are educated throughout our school system on the possibility of school shootings and ALICE training. The training should be more frequent and have more than one option; the options being 'run and hide'.

Great school system, however there is a lot of stress put on students to have good grades. I think the school system could work on how they deal with students mental health needs as well as reducing stress which they have taken measures to help alleviate. The teachers are really great at the high school. In the lower level schools the teachers are less helpful and don’t seem to care as much about their students.
Westford has always performed above and beyond many affluent towns without the million dollar Home. A recent report from Niche
Ranking 2019 best Boston school districts in Massachusetts, and to no surprise Westford ranked #3 in the state just behind Lexington and Newton.
