School Notes

  • The goal at Westbury Christian School is to nurture and develop the whole child, academically, spiritually and socially.  We believe that in order for students to thrive, all three of these dimensions and a supportive environment, both at school and at home, are required.  To that end, we desire to develop a partnering relationship with parents in an effort to mentor students into the young men and women God created them to be.  WCS strives to provide academic excellence and promote spiritual and social development at an affordable price for today`s families. The school is committed to continuing to improve in the three areas of its emphasis; spiritual, academic, and student activities. God has blessed the school with an experienced and credentialed faculty and administration and many fine families. These blessings have given us a united spirit and dedication which binds us together, promoting the good of Westbury Christian School.

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!!
