Westover has a overall great academic program. When you are in class you can feel that it is a learning environment. Their AMA program is also wonderful! It gives a great chance for many students to get their hands into the medical field and learn the basics. They have a awesome Band and Chorale Department. Both are Superior rated but the LGPE festival. It is also the only school in their district with a Show Choir which is all a amazing group of singers and dancers. My only recommendation for WHS is that it needs numerous renovations the last time it was renovation was in the 1920's. Otherwise this is a great high school for learning and I recommend it.

As an alumni of Westover high school, there were a couple of things I enjoyed and some things I disliked. For example, I loved the people within the school. Everyone felt like family and was always there to help. The clubs that I was apart of made the experience very enjoyable and memorable. While this is true, some things could be changed to benefit the students attending now and future patriots such as the college readiness. While it is not terrible, i feel as though students should feel a little more prepared for college after graduating. I believe the academics should be above average, to in turn, produce above average students.
Westover High school is a decent school when it comes to academic activities and achievements. This school, however has more than just academic clubs and activities, they have extracurricular activities such as a Thespian Society, a chorus group, band activities and other fun assortments. The staff, however is not as decent as the activities around the school. If it was anything that would change about this school, is more hardworking,active, and more understanding staff.
