      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with Westtown School: Westtown is special, the minute you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 step on campus you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 feel it. There are unique Quaker aspects which only benefit you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experience. The community at Westtown is unlike any other place. There is an atmosphere of mutual respect between students and teachers that paves the way for discussion based curriculum and a deeper understanding of subject matter. The community fully supports you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 and always has you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r back. Westtown feels like a 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 away from 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗, and the people feel like you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r second family. I will never forget my time at Westtown, because I found myself and made life-long friendships.

      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with Westtown School: The Quaker philosophy at Westtown creates a unique atmosphere where all students and teachers are encouraged to be active members of the community, creating an ideal learning environment. By addressing teachers by their first names, students immediately feel equal to and comfortable around their teachers enabling the formation of meaningful relationships in the classroom, on the field, and on dorm.

      All classes are discussion based and encourage students to explore their own understanding of the material rather than memorizing facts. Westtown students are beyond prepared for college coursework, but more than anything they will graduate with a much more powerful thirst for learning and passion for their studies.

      Boarding at Westtown was absolutely my favorite aspect of my high school experience. By living on a dorm floor with my entire grade I built life-long friendships and felt a great unity between my class as a whole. Nightly study halls, check-in times, and room inspection helped students develop good habits for independent living that will prove invaluable for the transition to college.

      Westtown's location offers the best of both worlds being situated on 600 acres of beautiful secluded farmland yet only 10 minutes from downtown West Chester, a small historic town with shops, restaurants, and events on the weekends. Westtown is also only 45 minutes from Philadelphia and in driving distance of both New York City and Washington, DC.

      Westtown School had the single greatest impact on my becoming a confident and strong adult. Feeling appreciated and welcomed in class discussions allowed me to open up and speak my mind in front of teachers. The support I felt from my teachers and peers encouraged me to be more outspoken in all areas of my life. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have grown up in such a nurturing and inclusive environment as it has truly made me who I am today.

      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with Westtown School: Westtown School became my true 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 during the 4 years I spent there. I came to the school not knowing a single person, and I graduated close relationships and friends I know I will always have. After graduating, I realized the true impact that my teachers, coaches, and especially fellow students had on me. The opportunities I had at Westtown School, as well as the values that the school emphasized, greatly contributed to the person I am today.
