School Notes

  • Westmark School transforms lives. Since our students learn differently, we teach differently. At Westmark, we provide research-based, individualized instruction for early intervention. We build on the strengths of students in Grades 2-12 with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, or other math or reading learning disabilities which are often combined with ADD or ADHD.  Westmark's college-preparatory curriculum differentiates instruction based on student need and allows children to discover not only their personal academic style but their strengths and areas of need as well. Through the integrated use of assistive and educational technologies, our students learn to love learning again, discover their personal learning styles and strengths, and develop new interests, character and confidence to fulfill their potential. Westmark is about much more than just what happens in the classroom. In the classroom, on the stage and on the field, these bright students have what it takes, and Westmark has what they need: a warm and stimulating environment that turns struggle to strength and challenge to opportunity.Since its founding over 30 years ago, Westmark School has provided students with a college-preparatory curriculum and traditional independent school experience offering competitive athletic teams; performing, visual and digital arts programs; service and experiential learning; student leadership opportunities; and a variety of after school enrichment classes. Westmark has much to offer motivated, creative, and multi-faceted children.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
