    "As parents we wanted very good academics but also a nurturing environment with good values. Our son went to two other schools in Pennsylvania and England and neither came close to the quality of Westtown. Our daughter spent three years boarding at Westtown and the teaching was in-depth, the social life was great and sports were not, one size fits all. She got into her first choice for college, too."

    "This school has prepped my child for taking on the world. I couldn't have asked for a more diverse community to immerse my child in. Westtown offers rigorous academics and extracurricular activities. Coming from the East Coast boarding school experience myself, I highly recommend Westtown if you are looking for a one of a kind education."

    "Academics are weak and not because of the curriculum choices but because there are too many mediocre teachers at the school delivering uninspired instruction. Heads of all 3 divisions need to start looking inward at teaching quality and invest some time and money into bettering practices. I hope the school will also start listening to parent feedback and start letting some of the dead weight go! There are so many quality teachers looking for positions and too many mediocre to poor Westtown teachers who were hired and were either not very strong to begin with or have since burned out. That is the beauty of an independent school - no tenure. Set yourself apart from the area publics by making certain every student is afforded quality instruction every single year. Otherwise, it is just not worth the money with T/E, Radnor, and UCFSD districts nearby. Westtown should be more than just a pretty campus."

    "I recently toured this school and thought to myself, what an awesome school to put my above average child in too challenge him. First, let me start off by saying my child is 4 years old and very intellegent. He is involved with the chester county intermediate unit because he is gifted, his IQ is 133. The intermediate unit helps with his behavior and intellegence because most of the time when you have a gifted child they act out when they aren't challenged, hence why I was looking into getting him into a good private school. The person in the class room wouldnt follow him to kindergarten. After touring the school the women we toured with called me and basically told me that they wouldn't be able to get my son into the school because they couldn't meet his needs. I guess this school doesn't deal with gifted children and that's a shame; for the 20k they charge to go there you would think they would want gifted kids. I kinda feel discriminated on because I have smart child. After touring I had decided to send him there for high school but not elementary but my thoughts have changed now and I will be seeking different schools for sons future education."

    "Our child had a wonderful experience at the Middle School. Not so at the Upper School. The teachers at the Upper School vary from excellent to mediocre. The school is not committed to helping students with learning differences or challenges. The most frequent suggestion we received from the people in charge of learing resources, who were never there for more than a year, was to "hire a tutor." If your child needs any type of learning support, you would be doing him or her a favor to look elsewhere."
