The mission of Westwood High School is to educate the future citizens and leaders by giving students the opportunity to participate in activities that make their community and the world a better place. We do this through our commitment to academic excellence, to the power of athletics and the arts, and to the promotion of community service.
In the classrooms of Westwood High School students will be provided with a tolerant and peaceful environment for learning. The school will foster a sense of self-esteem and respect for all. Students will be given multiple opportunities to develop healthy lifestyles with exposure to new ideas and new ways of understanding the world around them. This learning environment will promote a collaborative approach to learning as well as emphasize the value of lifelong learning. From this, students will begin to develop a path in life with a sense of their own unique talents and how they will fit into the larger world around them.
The vision for Westwood High School will be to set the standard for learning in the twenty-first century. Academic excellence, positive attitudes towards learning and solid language skills in both French and English will be the focus of the dedicated quality teaching staff. The rapidly advancing digital technology in our world will be continually evaluated and included in the school curriculum. The commitment to creativity will be provided through the promotion of the arts of music, drama, dance and visual art. Staff involvement in sports, student life, and community service will continue to be a vital part of the school’s environment. We are committed to creating and sustaining the conditions that enable all Westwood High School students to experience a comprehensive general education while optimizing their own self-worth and pride, their own unique gifts, and their progress in their intellectual, social and personal educational journey.
