When I first came to WHS as a freshman, we had just received a new principal (Mr. Baldermann, Principal of the Year 2017) who really changed the school for the better throughout my 4 year of being there. Our school was recognized for three national rankings: U.S. News & World Support "Best High Schools rankings", America's Top High schools 2015, Washington Post "America's Most Challenging High Schools 2015."
It was such a great community that was accepting and supportive. Also, this school had such a great staff!

Great School.

The teachers and staff are very caring for all students.
The test scores and rankings excellent.
Because the school is smaller, there are many outstanding opportunities to get involved. The students are very well behaved and positive. Great culture and climate at Westmont High School.
The school earned the highest rating, Exemplary, from the Illinois State Board of Education. Westmont also has an amazing Advanced Placement program.

This is a special highs chool.
There are many opportunities to discover new interests, get the grades you want, and have fun. The teachers are very accommodating. If you want to try out for a sport but have never played before, chances are you will make it because the tryout process is not hyper-selective since the school is small. This is good for when you want the opportunity to try a new sport, but bad for when you are serious about the sport you play (so depending on your skill level and the strength of your passion for the sport, it might be better to join club sports as opposed to teams in the school). The English wing could be more organized, especially in the AP curriculum. The math department is amazing, always willing to help, functional, well-informed, and genuinely care for student success. There are numerous ways to prepare for college at WHS and classes like College Readiness make it easier to improve SAT/ACT scores. I wish the fine arts department was not a mess.
