Westford Academy Reviews

Westford Academy harbors a distinctly strong, yet rigorous, academic experience. Many students frequently take multiple high-level classes which are treated at such: high-level. A number of electives are available in each subject area, although certain departments, such as the science department, lack sufficient resources to deliver to the demands of students despite trying their hardest. The administration seems to have a bit of a power complex and does NOT enjoy students who believe they deserve a more independent experience. Finally, students can become toxically competitive and ruin the educational experience for others because such there is underlying, albeit intense stress on grades, test scores, and academic performance, but effort often feels unrewarding.

It was incredibly challenging and teachers pushed students non-stop, however it made me a better student because I not only became more equipped to handle high-pressure situations, but I was more involved in my education and wanted to do well. Students were competitive, however encouraged each other and most were willing to help their classmates. Overall, I wish the school would give less homework because in harder classes it can take hours to complete work after school, however the intensity of the classes helped prepare me for the real world.
Westford Academy has been a great place for me and has helped me mature as a person. Everyone supports and looks out for each other. Every student is treated as a young adult. The teachers seek to get to know everyone and understand that every person is unique. Creativity is encouraged and all students are valued. Teachers always make time to give extra help, both before and after school. Westford Academy teachers also work to ensure that the college application process goes smoothly.
