Westford Academy, at first glance, is a great school. It has everything you would need/want in a school, such as school spirit, great teachers, and especially academic brilliance. There are many clubs to choose from, each which have somewhat adequate funding. This school has taught me that there is always room for improvement, which has pushed me to work harder but has also lowered my self-esteem. Although I have only been to this school for one year, I believe that with the right guidance students here are fully capable of achieving success.

Westford Academy is certainly a wonderful school whose teachers and staff is dedicated to helping their students. The only negative was that although WA is diverse it is not always inclusive. There is a certain disconnect between people of color, all people of color, and white people coming simply from a place of not understanding that microaggressions are a very real thing; but this is also a problem that permeates society as a whole. Other than that, Westford Academy is a school that will certainly give you the qualities you need to succeed in life and is where I formed lasting friendships.
The caliber of the administrative and teaching staff at Westford Academy is unmatched. Each of these professionals is a leader in their academic field and has a passion for what they do. This creates the ultimate learning environment for students with rigorous courses and engaged staff. Westford Academy has an extremely high graduation rate and is one of the best ranked public schools in the state. Upon graduating from WA and entering college, I found my reading, writing and math skills to be leaps and bounds ahead of my new peers.
