"There is no greater joy than watching your child eagerly bound into school each morning while chatting with friends and teachers, and no greater peace of mind than listening to your child's adventures and learning experiences from the day on the car ride home each evening. Childhood is cherished and honored at Westtown, and each child's unique personality and strengths are nurtured. We love this community!" - Current Parent of Kindergartener and 2nd Grader

At a World Economic Forum, a leader talked about education and what we need to teach our kids. He pointed out that knowledge is important, but the soft skills such as values, believing, independent thinking, teamwork, and compassion are what will help our kids stay competitive. I am a current Westtown parent, and I have witnessed how these soft skills are embedded into the school’s curriculum in every division.
