Westbury Friends School Ratings & Reviews

My experience with the school has been absolutely amazing. The overall communication from the school staff and school leader set the school apart from anything I have ever experienced. We have been looking at schools since he was 6 months as a requirement from NYC to ensure admission into a school. I'm a bit of a techie and appreciate the website as informative and aesthetically pleasing and impressive. My husband and I are committed to keeping our son here and bearing the commute as important for our son to have a good experience with education which this school is providing. We were intrigued by the 'little house on the prarie' school setting which adds to the charm of the school. The head of the school is present and in tune with the classes (I have seen her 95% since school started in September). The teachers are supportive and engaging and work closely with us to ensure our son gets the best experience in learning. The school is inclusive and ensures that families are invited to be a part of the most important time of a child's life and experience. It is organized, calm, peaceful and provides and experiential environment where children can thrive. They take the time to provide detailed progress report on your child regardless of the age which helps fulfill the child's experience at school and at home. I am so happy we met a parent at a parent/child session that recommended this school as it has exceeded our expectations and has relieved our concerns in finding an educational home for our son. As for tuition, it is highly competitive compared to other institutions that are over priced and under deliver (especially with the services WFS provide).

I am so happy I went to see about this school for myself despite some reviews I read. I enrolled my son mid year since I was not happy with where he was. The school is amazing! Teachers are patient and caring. My son has learned so much while having fun. He LOVES to go to school now. The grounds are incredible with PLENTY of outdoor space to run and have fun. The classrooms could use some sprucing up however they have started some upgrades and apparently plan on doing much more to bring the grades back. The other parents are nice and we set up play-dates and talk outside of school which I like. It was perfect timing for my family since now my son can stay put for more years to come. I would definitely recommend anyone to check it out f themselves.

My child is thriving at Westbury Friends School. WFS has always been best in class for early childhood education; now it's their sole focus. Two major things set WFS apart from other early childhood programs true teaching through play and the vast experience and expertise of the teachers. Through patient and engaging teaching, my daughter is well beyond standards for her age in reading, math, art and science. She has overcome challenges in her social and emotional development. Approaching school every morning she yells SCHOOL! enthusiastically, and on pick-up talks nonstop about things she did with her day. Parents are made welcome and encouraged to participate, even in the classroom, which is not the case in many other schools. I recommend Westbury Friends for families who seek individualized attention for their child, a true community experience, excellent curriculum and creative, engaging teaching by expert teaching staff. I've heard from other WFS parents whose children have gone on to higher grades, in public and private settings, that their children far exceeded academic expectations. I'm confident that my child is well prepared to move on from here after Pre-K.

School is a shadow of its former self. Campus is pretty deserted given the lack of students and teachers. Somewhat unsafe with the open access to the school and lack of security measures. Very depressing place now, would be surprised if it remained open much longer. Hard to understand how the current Wesbury Quaker Meeting members could allow this to happen to a school that has been around for over 50 years! Luckily there are other excellent private school choices in the vicinity.

Not sure why this school continues to be shown ad PK-5 with 91 students - it only offers toddler through PK program and has just over 20 kids. WFS as many people knew and loved is gone.
