Westport School District Reviews

3 reviews
Westport has some of the top public schools in the nation. It is absolutely a rigorous high school and great preparation for post secondary education. The academic opportunities were definitely a wonderful challenge and set me up for success in college. The town itself is exceptionally safe and offers students tremendous opportunities for sports, singing, band, plays, and clubs, both as extracurricular activities associated with the schools and as well in the town.
Review Westport School District
School very well prepares students for college and offers many extracurricular opportunities. While there is not much diversity, there is good class options, including art programs, and teachers who care about what they teach.
I was very prepared for college after leaving the Westport School District, but there is a lack of diversity.
