School Reviews

My daughter has attended The Westridge School since grade 4, the first year of admittance. She is currently a freshman. Westridge is indeed a special place where anything is possible. It is a supportive, inclusive environment with an emphasis on academic excellence. A Westridge girl is a force of nature. My daughter has not been shaped or formed, rather engaged in the empowering process of honing her best, bold self in a constructive, expressive manner as to affect good. The Westridge School does an amazing job of admitting quality young woman who are bright, confident and diverse. Its highly educated teachers, administrators, and specialty staff, model a culture of higher mindedness. The campus is stunning and impeccably maintained with attention to safety, architecture, and sustainability. A most gracious institution with deep ties to the community and a history of turning out well adjusted, happy young woman. Among them are many of the best and brightest in our nation. Its an honor to be a part of The Westridge School experience. -E. J-K
