Approach to learning/instruction top-notch. Cross-curricula approach amazing & all subjects integrated in thoughtful, engaging manner. Tuition very high w/ annual increases. Beautiful campus & outdoor learning large part of program. Open campus creates safety concerns. School has much work to do in safety department. School is very liberal. Say they present both sides, typically do not, especially political issues. Community inclusive & diverse on all fronts. Safe place for gender identity/LGBTQ community. Admissions should be balanced w/ due diligence. Promises made but untrue. No accountability for these "sales-driven" misrepresentations. Teachers are amazing & know their students. Teachers specialize. Children are not relying on one teacher to teach all subjects. Teachers hone their expertise & focus on new ways of engaging students. Teachers just as excited & engaged as the children. There is no complacency. Overall, great place to learn, grow & thrive as whole person.

Westtown School has been amazing for both of my children. It has allowed them to develop as individuals and gain confidence while learning how to collaborate with others. The use of Design Thinking in the classrooms has provided them the confidence to ask questions and think of out of the box solutions. They are excited and engaged learners in a safe, fun, and loving community. Middle school has been great for my daughter and provides s a safe, nurturing environment for her gain more independence in his studies and everyday life.
I went to Westtown from day care to 12th grade. The boarded experience was hands down the best thing I've ever done. The Quaker education and experience blended with the boarding experience to create an atmosphere where I felt safe, cared for, and supported. I really cannot say enough about this school. I know I have made friends I will love forever at this school, and I cannot wait to go back for reunions! It was a life-shaping and life-changing experience, and I can't imagine my life without it. It was truly a family there.
