1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The Westover School provided me with an educational experience that has lasted a lifetime. My roommate from Westover is still my friend. The professors and staff are top educators and the school makes for being away from home fun exciting and educational. I would recommend Westover School for any young lady thinking about boarding school.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
The best thing that happened to me at boarding school was that I started a lifelong journey learning Spanish. I remember my first Spanish teacher at Westover like it was yesterday because she made a lasting impression to keep on studying languages even when it is tough. I speak fluent Spanish and some French from my studies at Westover.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I was a little homesick and I would have liked to join more activities or clubs to keep my mind off being homesick.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
The faculty and the classes were so influential on what I studied in college. All of the professors are experts in their subjects and I loved learning from the professors at Westover.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Wake up for Sunday brunch because it is so yummy.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Middlebury is a nice town. We used to walk to the convenience store in town and on the weekends the school provided transportation to the Mall in Hartford and other fun activities.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
The social life at Westover teaches fun rivalry. As a new student you will become either a West or an Over to play games against eachother. It was very fun to be team and school spirited. I loved the old traditions.
Alumni Reviews Review School
- Review Description
- UMBC Westover School is unique because of its community. No other school I have visited or heard of has the atmosphere Westover has. Each of the students have unbreakable bonds with each other and the faculty;. . .
- Boston College Westover School is unique, for one, because it is an all-girls school. Being one of the few remaining all-girls schools in the surrounding area, Westover strives to instill in students qualities of independence and confidence. . .
- University of New Hampshire Form the moment you walk into the great yellow walls of Westover, you are greeted with smiles. Westover's community is close-knit and comfortable. We not only support each other, but also push our friends, teammates. . .
Social media is an essential part of a boarding school's marketing strategy
Parents considering schools should read New York Times columnist Frank Bruni's book about college admissions entitled Where You Go Is Not Who You Will Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania. Much of what he says applies in the private K-12 world.
