My experience at WSA was a good one. I have been in this school since my freshman year and I'm proud to say that I am going to be apart of the second ever graduating class! The teachers care for the students as if they are their own. The students respect each other, and look out for each other. This school is all about community, self reflecting on yourself, collaboration, and discussion. All of these are exhibited in the classrooms and even outside of school.

After being in two different high schools in the past four years before being transferred to Westchester Square Academy, I have to say that Westchester Square Academy is the greatest one. It has its flaws like teachers always coming and going. However, it has offered me so many student resources that I did not receive in the other high schools I have been in. With so many students on the campus, it is amazing how many student resources they have. I am happy to be here.
In Westchester Square Academy, it helped mold a better me. I feel as if everyone thinks they’re an adult and acts like they are even if that may not be the best method. I learned to enjoy everything offered to you because you may not get that opportunity again. Half way through my high school career, new administration and staff was brought. Though it was a little rough at first, we all pulled through to succeed through the rest of our journey.
