    "This school cultivates leaders and the teachers (many from the town or nearby) have deep rooted concern and interest in the students potential and ultimately, their success. It is proof that the school raises students to be leaders and concerned community members because throughout the community the schools are filled with teachers who are alumnae. As adults we come back and give workshops and information sessions on how we made it and what we are working on now and just helpful hints, because we care. Those are the kinds of students that Westbury High School helps develop! Class of 2002 :-)"

    "Westbury High School is an excellent school with good leadership if a student wants to succeed and thrive they can do it there. Last night I attended a seminar for students interested in engineering which the high school prepare students for, the seminar was hosted by Bucknell University a college of engineering, I was impressed with some of the students. After reading negative things about this school I almost send my child to private school but I decided to give it a chance and I am not sorry. This school needs parents involvement if a parent don't care then the child most likely will not. This is a very very diverse school and I can see why some Old Westbury residents opt for private sometimes we are afraid to have our children in certain environment but at some point in their lives they are face with the things we sheild them from. I recommend this High School if your child wants to succeed and you as a parent is willing to get involved in your children lives they will succeed at any school they attend. Parents lets get involve and make Westbury High School a desirable school. The teachers and tools are there."

    "Horrible, horrible and horrible some more. Second from the bottom in H.S. graduation rate in Nassau Cty in 2013 and at the bottom or near the bottom in all categories on Long Island. A great majority of the students attending this school don't live in the district as most residents choose to send their children to private schools. A struggling school in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in America. The surrounding school districts would never put up with this level of apathy from school board, teachers and most of all parents."

    "Westbury H.S. is a horrible school. It finished second from the bottom in Nassau Cty in 2013 in terms of graduation rate and last if not the bottom in all other categories. It is one of the worst high schools on Long Island period. The irony of this is that it is in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in America (Old Westbury) . Gerrymandering at its best this school is a dumping ground for under achieving students and trouble makers from other districts and offers a remedial curriculum at best. Apathy reigns supreme amongst the school board, school administration, teaching staff and parents. Surrounding school districts would never put up with the lack of caring and respect for education exhibited in Westbury. Those who can afford to send their children to private schools do; avoiding the situation at the high school all together. A possible solution to the woes of this school might be state intervention as nothing else has seemed to help."
