    "Our two daughters attend this school in preschool and Kindergarden and my husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision to send them here. The quality of the teachers, office administration and other staff is top notch. The classrooms have all the latest technology including Apple computers for the students to use and an online potal which allows parents to log-in to view their child's homework, attendance, calendars and more. The other families and their children that attend school here are very welcoming and polite and the parent involvement is very high which is wonderful. There are a lot of school events throughout the year and so many extra activities are offered including ballet, piano lessons, swimming, painting and much more. The curriculum is college preparatory based while honoring Christ and educating the students about the bible and their faith. Our children are so happy here and we can't wait for our one year old to start in a few years as well!"

    "I love and am committed to Christian education. My personal experience with Westminster Academy causes me to wonder if it merits the high ratings others have given it here. I was offered a job here on Aug 1. I accepted the position two days later on the 3rd. On the 6th they notified me that they were rescinding the offer and hiring someone local instead. (I live in Maryland.) My interaction with the school began in June and included emails, a phone interview, and a skype interview. They had promised to make a decision by a date in mid July. They postponed their decision several weeks, until finally offering me the position on 8/1. After I accepted their offer, I immediately began looking for a place to stay in Florida, pricing moving options, buying packing supplies, and packing my things in an effort to be there quickly and before their 8/14 start date. Then the news of the 6th arrived. Naturally I complained but did not expect it to do any good. I have sent receipts for the $103 I spent on moving supplies in reliance upon their word, but have been ignored. This is how this "Christian" school treats people in this economy. This is the example they set."

    "When looking for a preschool for our 2 yr old, I had extremely high standards and put in hours of research. My choices came down to WA and another private elementary school close by. When I called both schools, the reception I received from the staff at WA was very welcoming and impressive. We did the tour of the school and were further impressed by not only the facilities and activities, but the genuine love and sense of family shared by staff and students. So far, we are very happy with our choice and expect to continue to be so. The school culture encourages a love for Christ ( which I was looking for) but is strong on academics (which my husband was looking for), so I recommend WA wholeheartedly to anyone seeking the perfect blend of experiences for their child and an environment where they can thrive and grow."

    "We moved to south Florida four years ago from northern Virginia, where our children attended a premier college prep non-denominational Christian school. For the first three years in Florida, our kids went to a Christian school northwest of Ft Lauderdale, where our daughter graduated in 2010. We were very disappointed in the academics and spiritual life there. This year our son attended Westminster for his first year of high school. What a difference! Westminster's academics are top-rate, the student body is involved and welcoming, the teachers are spirit-filled and encouraging, and the administration is helpful beyond belief. It is well worth the 30 minute drive each morning and afternoon to have our son be immersed in such an environment where God comes first in everything."

    "As a parent who desires only the best for his children (just like all of us), I'm very proud that such a fine school exists. The difference between westminster and other fine private schools in our area is that education at westminster goes beyond excellence in academics. With children spending so much time in school and with their peers, the school's influence ultimately enters the home. For this reason, westminster stands far above the rest. Academic Excellence....the teaching of values and morals....sports....and an overall beautiful environment is why we chose westminster for our children.....and morals and values are the difference between someone like Bernie Madoff vs Bill Gates. Both very bright individuals who achieved 'worldly success.' But one of these men destroyed lives as the other pursues to give and assist those in need. Morals, values and Academic excellence."
