I graduated from Westchester Area School in 2012. I attended from Pre-K to 8th grade. I credit this school for my strong academic, musical, and Christian foundation. In May of 2020, I graduated from Marist College Summa Cum Laude and in the top 10% of my class. The incredible teachers and all of the staff at Westchester Area School played a pivotal role in developing my strong sense of self which allows me to be confident in myself, my abilities, and the skin that I am in.

Class of 2012

I was introduced to WAS by a friend who is a former parent. She spoke of the enriched academics, family like environment, and God centered curriculum. Such attributes are the reasons why I keep my children at Westchester Area School. I know my children are in good hands when I drop them off in the mornings. It gives me great joy to hear my children speaks of God’s love and protection of them or to hear them pray for others during difficult times. Academically, they are performing well above their grade level in comparison to their peers in other schools.
Mrs. Elysee is a great Principal. She is compassionate, easy spirited, and a great leader. She is always accessible to parents and values the partnership between home and school. Mrs. Elysee and her team of teachers are creative, engaging , and dedicated to their craft. They are very innovative when introducing each topic, which make students want to learn. At WAS, Parents are given much reassurance that their child will be well prepared for the next chapter of their schooling.
