I like that Westbrook High School encourages its students to succeed in every possible way. Because the school is so small, the teachers have a lot of time to dedicate to each and every student. They work so hard to make sure their students not only complete their work, but also understand the topics they learn and are able to apply those concepts to other, real-life scenarios.

I couldn't have had a better 4 years at WHS! I love it so much here and I am sad to let it go. The teachers were friendly and welcoming from the start. They have helped me learn and grow as a person and without them I do not know where I would be. I do not think I would be so involved with art because thanks to all of my teacher's encouragement, I will be pursuing Photography in the future. When I walk down the halls I feel so comforatable and confident and definitely believe that I have become such an open book thanks to WHS. We are all like a big family here; everyone knows each other and are extremely friendly to one another. I am so close with all of my teachers and I hate to have to leave them, but I feel prepared for my future and certainly look forward to coming back and visiting everyone at WHS!
My post-graduation experience has been amazing. I absolutely love my choice in college, Quinnipiac University. I constantly compare myself to my peers and believe my high school experience at Westbrook High School more than adequately prepared me for my academics; however, I wish I had learned more life lessons, as in how to do taxes, how to change a tire, etc. These are things I must learn on my own, however it would be very beneficial to learn in high school, especially considering not everyone progresses onto college after graduation.
