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.

I loved my time here at WA! There is such a great variety of courses you can take in all subject areas, and you can challenge yourself with a variety of challenging AP classes. The school is great at preparing students academically and has so many great teachers!
At Westford Academy, I think our academics are pretty great in general. There's a general culture of hard work and studying, (even sometimes to the point where it's toxic). However, there are resources in place for burnout and students such as Challenge Success, which is an organization at our school that aims to reduce stress (though many people disagree on how effective it actually is). Sports are fairly competitive, though it varies between the sports - for example, our football team isn't great compared to others, but our soccer teams and swim and dive teams are pretty stellar. The faculty and students are all great in general and everyone's really supportive of each other. You'll always find great people here at WA, and there are tons of ways to get involved, from clubs to theatrical productions to community service organizations to athletics - you name it.
