Westwood Middle School
A Team of Professionals
The middle school is taught by a team of sixth, seventh and eighth grade teachers. They have a unique understanding of the needs of this age group and how to challenge and encourage their best growth.
A Step Up Academically
Students step up from elementary school into a more demanding curriculum with more critical thinking and independent study. The reading curriculum continues with emphasis on comprehension, critical thinking, and reader response. The study of English builds with emphasis on writing, editing, and understanding language. The math goes beyond the four basic operations. Social studies and science become more project based and more relevant.
Hands On Learning
At Westwood, we work to make learning meaningful through hands-on learning experiences.
Middle school students have physical education every day.
Each week middle school students Spanish.
Eighth grade students are taught keyboarding.
Middle School students can participate in basketball, baseball, cheerleading, cross country, softball, football and track. They can also choose to be part of the Middle School Quiz Bowl team that competes in organized Quiz Bowl Competitions.
What Our Parents Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
Westwood offers our children a safe, loving, and encouraging learning environment where our kids are challenged academically. We are proud to be a part of a family-oriented school where values are a priority.
Westwood is more than just a school, it is a family. The school's size, together with its values, standards, and excellent academics are the reasons we choose Westwood for our girls. Westwood focuses on developing a well-rounded student. Not only is a quality education important, but involvement in extra-curricular and the community is emphasized as well.
I wouldn't send my children anywhere else! In addition to excellent academics, all three of my children have been able to be an integral part of many different school activities (sports teams, clubs, performing arts) without having to concentrate, or specialize in just one area.
