Quality Schools, from K to College
Straddling both Adams and Jefferson counties, Westminster offers three excellent public school systems, as well as charter and private schools. Students can expect challenging curricula, stimulating learning opportunities, and low student-teacher ratios (ranging from 20:1 to 28:1). To meet the diverse student interests, many schools incorporate gifted-and-talented programs, Advanced Placement courses, and International Baccalaureate programs.
