My son is a rising senior at and is completing his first year at WCS. We couldn't be happier with the curriculum, attention to detail and genuine level of care for our child exhibited by every member of the administration and staff. We feel truly blessed to have found WCS.

I have 2 kids at WCS. We love it! It is the best place for my girls. They have grown in their faith, social development, and academics. The teachers truly love the students and their jobs; you can see it daily in the students. They know they are loved and valued. It is a blessing to be at this school.

We love WCS! The teachers and administrators are truly passionate about helping kids achieve academic success, but more importantly, spiritual foundations and growth. We have two kids in this school who are polar opposites of one another, but they both feel accepted, supported, and fulfilled here.

5 stars!!! WCS is a wonderful school! The Head of School, principals, and teachers truly care about and know each student. It provides a warm learning environment that drives our children to do their very best. From band competitions to sports, to community mission work, to a multiplicity of AP courses students receive an outstanding education. The Christian education is excellent. We see the students demonstrate what they are learning from their involvement at school and in their communities. WCS students stand out with compassion, integrity, and excellence because they are taught that daily. God bless WCS!

My son has been attending WCS since K4 and is now in the 10th grade. The exceptional academic curriculum and the school's commitment to a Christian foundation are nothing short of amazing! Their attention to small classes that ensure all student's academic needs are met has proven to be extremely effective, with 100% of graduates receiving scholarships to major universities. I recommend Westbury Christian School to anyone who's looking for a highly effective education with a Christian foundation.

My son is a preschooler at Westbury Christian School and we have been so impressed by the school and its leadership. My son looks forward to coming to school to see his friends and teachers. He loves the extracurriculars of library time, art, PE, and after-school classes. I think as a family we have been most pleased by his spiritual growth. He can recite verses and sing worship songs in the car and throughout the house. We have felt that Westbury Christian provides the perfect environment for students to flourish academically, socially, and personally. We highly recommend!!!

As a Westbury parent, this school has been an excellent choice for our family. The safety protocols when we returned to school were expansive and detailed, yet efficient. The option for in-person or on-line learning was important for our family to make the best choice for our child. We love that all of our children can go to the same school from pre-school through twelfth grade. The teachers and staff are exceptional in that the academics are rigorous, but the kindness and care for the students is always first. Class sizes are small, so the students are known. We choose Westbury again and again.

Westbury Christian School (WCS) is a hidden gem that offers a college preparatory scholastics program in a loving Christian environment. The teaching staff/administrators go above and beyond to challenge each of my kids, at an individualized level, to ensure that they exceed their potential. WCS has a robust sports program that is open to all and offers a number of best-in-class extracurricular programs (band, robotics, theatre). We are so grateful that we discovered Westbury Christian School.

We love this school. We've been here 3 years and have 3 children here. Preschool, Elementary and Middle school have all been great. The teachers truly care about our kids. The school is focused on excellence, and it's evident in all they do. It's a quality experience; academically, spiritually and socially. We highly recommend WCS!

Our family moved to Houston in the middle of the school year. Our middle school girls (mom & dad, too) were nervous about a new school. Immediately, from the first phone call and then visiting the school, WCS felt like family. With small classroom sizes and personal teacher assistance, our girls felt like they had been at this school for a couple of years. The STEM program is amazing, as well!

My wonderful neighbors are students at WCS, and I have been fortunate enough to be invited to several events there. The ambiance at the school is warm and welcoming from the moment one enters. Students and faculty alike are helpful in greeting visitors and giving directions. The diversity of the student body is a big plus, with students from all backgrounds. This is a positive attribute in preparing the students for living in the real world. It is obvious to me how happy my young neighbors are at WCS. They are always eager to go to school, and that says a great deal about the nature of the atmosphere and the education there. From my perspective, I heartily endorse Westbury Christian School! If I had known about WCS when my own children were of school age, I would certainly have considered sending them there. Five stars!

It's great to be a WCS WILDCAT!!! Our children have been a part of WCS since 2010. Our school is very diverse, with small class sizes and a wonderful sense of community. The teachers are excellent and provide a personal touch every chance they get. You become part of the family here and we look out for each other!

I am a parent of 2 WCS alumni and couldn't be happier with the education my son and daughter received while at Westbury Christian School. The excellence in academics, commitment to a Christian education and the inclusion of diversity has greatly benefited my children in their successes, not only in college but beyond as well. As a parent, I also appreciated the small class sizes and the personalized attention the kids received. I highly recommend Westbury Christian School to any parent looking for that hidden gem of a school!

I have 4 children at WCS - both in Lower and Middle School. The academic quality is incredible and the teachers are amazing. Strong community feeling and small class sizes. Personalized attention and 1 on 1 technology helps my children reach their full potential. So thankful we found Westbury Christian School!

My 2 children have attended WCS for 5yrs. It is a wonderful school. The school does what it motto reads "Training children in Christ from here to Enternity". I LOVE this school and would highly recommended it. My children love going to school here. The class sizes are great and your children will benefit from the loving, nuturing, and professional staff. There is no other school that measures to WCS (where you will feel the love of Christ from the staff, teachers, chef, maintenance men, and administrators.) Your children feel engaged no matter what age with sports, chapel, and music. My own children not only excel in academics but character, and confidence. You do your job (parenting) and WCS does their job, your child will excel in academics, character, and sports. GOD BLESS WCS!!
