WESTCHESTER! Is a place you can call home, a place that people feel welcomed and can excel academically. This is a home for the students looking to greater their education and taking chances. We are a choice school and we have the option to be part of the IB program. WAIS is a very academically challenging campus and we are always striving to be the best we can be. Administration is great. And this school has so much history. The tall and stately arches will always be my home!

I am presently a senior here at Westchester, and I have gone to this school ever since 6th grade. Words can not express how thankful I am for having gone to this place all these years. I was able to learn the true meaning of hard work, and what it took to do my very best. Not only did my academic skills improve over time, but so did the way I thought about school. Westchester has taught me that the more I learn the more I will be able to help the world...my world.
Our mascot is a wildcat, so like High school musical says "Once a wildcat always a wildcat". Westchester Academy awaits you, so hurry up and enroll for this school now!
I liked that the school is very small and contains very few students. That way, a sort of 'family' aspect is created amongst students, even across different grade levels. The faculty is very good mostly, except for very few exceptions which is why I only rated 4 stars. Even provided little funding from the government, this charter school has given me many opportunities for my future. This is the school I chose for my junior and senior year because it propose an IB (international baccalaureate) program which is - to me - more challenging than AP. So it's a great school that provides a variety of programs one can pick that can suit any kind of student.
