I love the wide variety of clubs and extra curricular options. The teachers I have had so far have all been wonderful, and the overall environment is very welcoming and supportive! The only reason my rating wasn’t a 5 was because of the handful of students who disrespect the school’s classrooms, bathrooms, and educators and staff. The students disrespect the rules more often than not, which saddens me greatly.

Westminster high school was amazing high school. Rebuilt for the incoming 10-11 school year. With those new renovations came high end tech for computer classes, whether that be for their STEM classes or for their digital art classes. The teachers there were always helpful and I'd be pressed to find a teacher that didn't go out of their way to try to help their students be their absolute best. Westminster also knows the importance of the arts with classes offering theater, traditional painting, guitar, piano. There was also a little bit of everything, most of the students were involved with at least one extracurricular activity. I would love for my kids to go to that school and have an amazing experience like I did.
I am a former student and this school has been overall beneficial by building a strong base for my education! The school offers many student services like TRIO Upward Bound and one on one sessions with the psychologist. The students are mostly "minorities" but they are all very connected with each other. If you attend this school expect the best of experiences here!
