Westminster Christian School Reviews

Our son has been attending Westminster for both middle and high school, and has thrived in the welcoming, Christian learning environment. WCS is a true gem in the Fox Valley area, helping to ensure all students can succeed academically, interpersonally, and spiritually. Small class sizes, dedicated faculty/administration, and varied opportunities for students inside and outside of the classroom help to make this school such a great value. There is a right balance struck between technology and traditional educational strategies for students of all ages at WCS. We have been so grateful for how this school and the wonderful people therein have helped to engage our son's learning journey and further build into his spiritual journey as well. Kudos to the Westminster Warriors!

I love Westminster. Having been there for twelve years now, I have no complaints about the school. I love how small it is, and I have gotten to know just about everyone in the school, which gives WCS an upper hand over public schools. The teachers are able to focus in on individual progress and development, and the small class sizes allow everyone to get involved in discussions and activities. The school also offers a much more rigorous education than public schools, and there are always copious amounts of extracurricular activities to participate in. If I could do it all again, there is no doubt in my mind that I would spend my entire education at Westminster.
Seriously, I have never felt unsafe in this school, in a any way. The nurse/whoever is around takes care of everyone who is hurt or sick immediately, there are teachers who would do just about anything to protect the students, and if a student is sick for a couple of days or even weeks, faculty members get together in order to make sure that student keeps up in their studies. This may be a poor example, but one time I got a fairly large (and extremely painful) splinter stuck under my fingernail. Two teachers help up their class for a couple of minutes to help me dig the splinter out. Knowing that the teachers at WCS are willing to help students that much is very comforting.
