Westwood High School Organization


Junior Campus

The Junior Campus bridges the gap between the small personal world of elementary school and the larger, more complex world of the senior school. The Junior Campus includes secondary I and II, about 490 students this year. Teachers, in each of the curriculum areas, work together to ensure that cross-disciplinary connections are made as often as possible. Teachers of the junior level are particularly sensitive to the rapid social, emotional, intellectual, physical development of their students.




Senior Campus

The Senior Campus is comprised of secondary III, IV and V. The school recognizes that students in the Senior Campus are significant participants in their own educational process. While students may still require considerable direction and guidance, they need some freedom to make personal decisions, to freely voice specific concerns, and to feel comfortable talking with adults about mature issues.

Teachers in Senior Campus recognize that they should play a less didactic role and must allow their students the opportunity to take greater responsibility for their own work. This year, the Senior Campus houses approximately 700 secondary students, from secondary III to V, and has a long tradition of academic excellence and constructive discipline. As a result our students do very well and approximately 90% of our graduates go on to further studies at Cegeps (college) and vocational schools.
