    "I really love this school! the classes are pretty small (about 60 or 70, depending on your grade), so basically everyone knows each other. We are sort of like a big, dysfunctional family. Because of that, being new can be a bit rough here, especially in middle school (i came in 7th grade) just because everyone is really close. Ive noticed, though, that if you are outgoing and work hard to make friends, you will do just fine. Middle school here definitely has cliques, just like any other school, but when high school comes they DEFINITELY start to dissappear. Mostly everyone is nice and easy to get to know, if you're outgoing. In terms of the teachers, I have found that some classes are way harder than others depending on who you have. I have had a couple teachers who basically treat the students like kindergarteners, giving out "classroom dojo points" or "privilege passes", while other teachers genuinely challenge the class. There are brilliant people here, and i know a lot of kids who are talented students, artists, photographers, athletes, and more. The school is very religious, and they teach from a christian perspective, which is good, but it does get in the way of students thinking for themselves. Basically every time I have tried to challenge a teacher's perspective, whether it has to do with theology or science, I have been shut down. They really try to avoid tricky subjects like evolution and stuff like that, but the new headmaster is trying to improve in the whole "talking about controversial things and letting kids think for themselves" area. At westminster, the entire upper school has a split day schedule, so we have A days and B days, each with four classes a day. It can be exhausting having so sit through an hour and a half of lessons, but it definitely makes the homework load lighter. Its also nice because we get long elective periods, too. I honestly just love it here, it's a place where i can be myself have fun, but still learn and grow. It's great!"

    "Gosh, i have had so much fun here. The people are honestly hilarious. It's a really great place to grow, just because there are a lot of genuine and real people here who are open about the stuff they're going through. I have had so many fun things happen to me over the years. When i was in eighth grade, there was a girl in my class who found a tiny pair of whitey-tighties on the ground next to a picnic table, so she literally picked them up, carried them upstairs, and hung them on the civics teacher's door handle in the middle school hallway so that the owner could find them again. Obviously she got in trouble, but i don't know, it was hilarious at the time. My entire class went on a trip to D.C. last year, which was SO amazing. Lots of the kids hadn't seen snow before, and even though it was dirty and gross they were totally amazed by it. While we were there, me and my friends and i stayed up till like ten o'clock in the hotel watching tv and eating ramen. It was great. We sang tons of songs while in the bus and got lost in museums. I will never forget it. If you come to this school and you are kind and outgoing then i PROMISE you that you will make real, quality friends that will stay with you forever."

    "Love all of the teachers from the school. I am in college now and can still go to them and ask them questions about school or talk about everything."
