The child who wants to succeed has every opportunity to receive a top-quality education at Westbrook High School in a well-supported community with caring teachers. Graduates pull thousands in scholarships every year and go on to whatever field they choose has been well-prepared.In addition, WHS offers an excellent music program with one of the state's largest marching bands and highly-acclaimed Jazz Ensemble, an award-winning drama department and a full slate of athletic programs. But, like every school system, the administrative support staff continues to grow at the expense of the educational arm but that will remain unchanged until there is a systemic overhaul in America freeing teachers to teach.
