Westhampton Beach High School definitely prepared me for college. They offer a wide variety of honors, AP, and college level courses. I am currently taking two college level courses through St. John's University, one for math and one for Spanish. In addition, they provide opportunities to visit SUNY and private colleges, as well as host college workshops at the school. Westhampton also offers lots of opportunities for extra curricular activities such as sports, drama, and various clubs. I have participated in their soccer program as well as the plays and musicals. There seems to be something for everyone!

I very much enjoyed attending Westhampton Beach High Senior School. The school is filled with wonderful teachers in every subject. With them teaching me and guiding me through high school, picking my major and getting through the college application process was a pretty smooth process. Its athletic program is very good and there is a lot of music/arts representation as well, which is especially important to me because I am a music major. There are so many different class electives and extracurricular clubs/activities that cater to all student interests. The school is big enough where there are many people to befriend and small enough where it’s not overwhelming for new students. On top of that, it’s a very safe school. There are security guards at the front and walking through every hallway at all times.
Great high school experience! Kids are nice, and there are activities for everyone. Atmosphere leans conservative, and few minorities.
