Westminster middle division is a place for active learning, strong course offerings, and high academic standards. Teachers focus on the three main goals for their students: to think critically and creatively to solve problems, to develop the ability to work with others, and to develop the self-discipline needed to complete assignments in a timely and responsible manner. Westminster graduates are known for their confidence in expressing their opinions, their creative problem solving, their excellent writing skills, and their ability to work well with others.
AFTER SCHOOL HOURS
Classes end at 3:30 p.m. each day, but teachers are available to work with students in their classrooms until 4:30 p.m. every day except Thursdays. During this time, students are able to receive extra help or make up work they missed during an absence. There is a supervised study hall every day which provides parents with an extended day opportunity. This drop-in study hall is available from the end of school until 5:50 p.m.
Students participating in sports, plays and MathCounts also often meet after school.
