Welcome to the Westport Community Schools. Our school district offers a wonderful and diverse educational opportunity for all our students.
As many of you know, public school finance has faced unprecedented challenges in the past few years. In addition to funding challenges, Massachusetts has taken an aggressive approach to education reform. As such, expectations have never been higher while, at the same time, challenges have never been greater. In spite of all that has developed at the State level in the past few years, Westport Community Schools continues to maintain positive results for student growth and achievement. Our students shine not only in the classroom but on the stage, (through the arts, band, chorus), on the field and through extra-curricular activities.
Through their pre-kindergarten through grade twelve schooling, our students work to develop integrity, accountability, a strong work ethic, and multiple other qualities that help them become successful contributors to our society. Students in Westport are well poised for success upon completion of their education. The parents, teachers, staff, and community do a remarkable job of supporting our students and setting high expectations that translate in to student success for years to come.
