Read what parents are saying about Westminster High School
This school has a lot to offer when you take the time to look. I see there are a lot of critiques, especially concerning the Competency Based System that Westminster Public Schools employs. Every member of this community should be thankful that we finally a high school ensuring that every student graduating is certain to have competency is all required subjects. This alone is going to strengthen our community and increase every Westy High student's level of success no matter where they go next.

I loved this school. Especially for the music department. I ended up entering to CU Boulder with scholarships that I never thought I would get. I got the support I wanted to. I entered the IB program and it helped me tremendously. I was involved in almost everything. Three choirs, drama, IB, sports and marching band. I loved being involved and I made the most of it.

I have two kids at this school and we heard alot of negative things going into the school. I have to say we have had a great year! Despite all of our hesitation sending our kids here, we are glad we did. The teachers do care and are excellent. If your child wants to learn and has a positive attitude, he or she will make friends and do great academically. There is a club or after school activity for everyone. This is a school where everyone can fit in somewhere! The teachers are very supportive and are there for your child if your child is interested in learning. Go Westy!

I totally agree with the student below. The teachers and staff are amazing! The school itself has so much to offer if only the students cared. Majority of the students do not try as hard or even put any effort into school. I see so many people who leave school and they clearly are ditching. There is also way too many girls that go to the bathroom just to spend time putting on makeup. Though there are the many students that actually put their time into their education. The Ib program the school offers is wonderful. Those students are dedicated and help each other out with work. I would say they are the ones who show that school matters. Overall the school is very good. Teachers to the best of their abilities but I think the thing that needs to be worked on is trying to engage students with how important academics are.
