Westmont Hilltop High School Reviews

My experience at Westmont Hilltop High School has been great so far. When I talk to students who have transferred to my school, they always say that Westmont is their favorite school yet, and that the atmosphere is fantastic. Our school has a wide variety of electives that can help decide what career path students are interested in. Our class sizes are small, letting us create good relationships with teachers and students, and gives us a good learning environment. This also leads for one on one time with teachers for a better understanding of material covered in class. We also, as a whole, have a caring and positive attitude to our fellow classmates and teachers, making our high school experience a great one.

Westmont Hilltop is a public school in a small city in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. It is hands down the best school in the city for academics, and has a competitive theater program. There is definitely a social hierarchy that dictates certain clubs in the school, primarily student council, but besides that, it is great!
Westmont has a very welcoming atmosphere and prepares you for college well. However, there are certain teachers who teach core classes and do not do their job effectively. Because of these very few teachers, I have found the academic part of Westmont frustrating. Most teachers at Westmont are amazing and will get students well-prepared for college.
