    "From a kid like me and everyone else who attends WAIS thinks that this is a school is: 1. Homework Hall which is a punishment to kids if they forget to do the homework or get a questions on the homework it's automatically a homework hall, 3. Saturday detentions which follows with the homework hall, if you miss a homework hall then you have a saturday detention even if you went to the doctors. 4. The principles treat you with no respect and the councilors do not believe you at all if you need to say something important along with the principles. 5.WAIS has been taking out the electives that kids go to school for and love, kids want to express themselves without getting in trouble by their teachers. I hope you consider thinking about my comments there is much more but i can't write all so this is it."

    "I find that the students can be themselves and not waste time trying to impress others. Relaxed atmosphere, yet demanding courses. Very serious about academics."

    "When it comes down to it, you can make a child go to school, but you can't force them to learn. Many people complain about Westchester, but Westchester is the kind of school that requires their students to actually make an effort to do well. Unfortunately, many students prefer to coast on through without making the good grades. I will be a Junior and will be taking a mix of IB and AP classes (Advanced Placement & International Baccaluareate.) This is a good school because the teachers actually make an effort, and it's an interesting school because we have programs that few other schools do, and many students actually go forward with those programs. Students who complain should keep in mind they chose to go to Westchester."
