Over the years, Westport has added a multitude of honors, and advanced placement classes to prepare students for advanced education beyond high school. Pre-calculus, calculus, and physics are just a few of the advanced placement classes that are available.

Junior/ Senior High School

Westport High School and Westport Middle School officially merged together on September 8, 2015, creating a junior/ senior high school in Westport. Due to building issues at the old Westport Middle School, the school committee voted in favor to close down the middle school at the end of the 2014-15 school year-- temporarily moving the 7th and 8th grades to Westport High School, thus creating a junior/ senior high school. The Town of Westport along with the Westport Community Schools system are currently exploring options to receive funding from the Massachusetts School Building Authority for a new school building in the future.
