    "The school encouraged hazing of the youngest students. To be a Senior, you were required to take an oath to turn in your peers for any violation of policies. The Dean accused me of using drugs because I refused to take the oath. The Dean had also asked why I did not just take the oath and break it later. It was community over ideals. This is harmful when mixed with a lack of diversity. I had the unpleasant experience of working closely in the professional world at a hedge fund with a former Head Prefect from Westminster, a position that disciplines young girls. He was the worst and most sadistic misogynist I ever met in my life. So just have open eyes about that school identity with the black ties, senior lawn and the "we (meaning the lily white population) are the best in the world.""

    "Outstanding, well rounded program which brings out the best in a broad variety of different types of high school kids. Best fit is smart, generous, fun kids who really enjoy being a part of a tight knit and happy group of students"

    "However bright, motivated and talented high school kids are, they do need guidance, and to be seen as people, not just test scores and varsity letters. Westminster does a phenomenal job of balancing skill building with heart, and sensitivity to the needs of each student for their own growth. Because there are local day students, the best and brightest from the Hartford area, it is easy to misunderstand Westy as a "Connecticut" school, but the range of kids who thrive here is tremendous. So glad I turned down other "higher" ranked schools to be at the best school for me. West will meet you where you are and make you the best you can be, academically, athletically, and as a member of a community."

    "Westminster was a good experience. The teachers are always supportive and wonderful at their jobs. The only downfall is the student body and lack of inclusion and diversity."

    "Horrible experience for PG students, who are barely integrated into the community, and are dismissed as 'dumb jocks' by most of the faculty. Restrictive environment, very white, very wealthy, 2nd tier school."
