“We’re proud to again be recognized nationally for what we already know about Westonka Schools - that we have truly exceptional teachers, staff, students and families who are committed to excellence in all areas,” said Superintendent Kevin Borg. “We are fortunate to have strong partnerships with our families that allow us to reach this level of success year after year.”
