The School Choice program allows parents to send their children to schools in communities other than the city or town they reside. Tuition is paid by the sending district to the receiving district. Districts may elect not to enroll school choice students if no space is available.
The Westport Community Schools has elected to participate in school choice for the 2017-2018 school year. On May 4, 2017, the School Committee voted to accept ten students in Grade 9 and ten students in Grade 12. Applications will be accepted until 1 PM on Friday, June 23rd. If there are more applications than available seats, a lottery will be conducted at 1 PM on June 23rd.. The lottery will take place in the Westport Junior/Senior High School Media Center.
If you are interested in applying for School Choice please click Under District and then under Superintendent to find the application link. Applications are also available in the Superintendent’s office located at 19 Main Road in Westport. The application may be mailed to or dropped off at the Superintendent’s Office.

The students are invited to attend the Youth Summit on BSU campus! We are so proud of all of them.
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.
