Westbrook High School Reviews

I have spent all of my middle school and almost all of my High school education in Westbrook. Comparing and contrasting those years to the ones I spent at my elementary school in West Haven my Westbrook education has been surreal. From the day I stepped into the Westbrook's school system I finally felt I had the possibility of becoming a professional in the future. I was given all the attention, time, patience and comprehension a child needs. With all the instruments the school provided I unleashed my ambition and need to work harder than ever to make my dreams possible. I am now a hardworking individual who is in the honor roll every semester and is also very involved in extracurricular activitys. I strongly believe that if i was not currently attending Westbrook High School I would not be the dedicated National Honor Society student that I am today.

Going to Westbrook almost my entire life I really got to see the ins and outs of the school system. The teachers cared little to none about the students and lacked any sort of compassion. The students were terrible to each other creating an awful enviroment for learning. The new grading system is setting you up for failure and promotes laziness. The whole enviroment is depressing and almost pushes you to not try and fail completely.
The teachers are pretty split down the middle on many principles. Very few show adequate care for the student and show the student the same amount of respect the teacher assumes to be given to them. however, most teachers don't put in that extra effort to connect with their students and run a more authoritarian classroom with very few student interactions that are portrayed as pleasant. Though if connections are made with the few teachers who go the extra mile a student will always have someone to rant to about the other teachers.
