Learn the Tools

Microsoft Office, Google Apps, and coding are just a part of what students learn to use in their creation and collaboration projects.

Forward Thinking

Technology change is not about the tools, it is about people. We learn to make our school, community, and world a better place by using our talents.

Learning our Strengths

We expose students to a wide variety of activities. We want to help them find their strengths. From the YouScience profile to other projects, students have a variety of opportunities for leadership and service.

Tools We Give You to Be Successful

PowerSchool Access

Every student in grades 6-12 receives a PowerSchool username and password. This is linked to your computer userid and password. So, when you change one, you change both!

A Personal Email

Each student from grades 6-12 also has a personal email account ending in Every teacher and other student’s contact information is pre-loaded in your address book. Just type their name and there they are! You can also use this to get student discounts when you purchase technology for education purposes.

A UserId and Server Space

Each student in grades 6-12 receives a computer userid. This ID can be used on any of the school’s computers on campus. Also, each student has a 2GB server drive to store files that you can access anywhere on campus. This is shown as your U: drive in network places.

Google Services

You email is through Google Apps for Education. This means you have access to all of the GSuite of Services (it used to be called Google Drive.) You can access all of these services at and log in with your student ID. This includes Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, Drawings, Calendar  and many other services. This also means that you can set up Google services on your mobile phone using your Westwood ID.

Print From Your Computer or Mobile Device

The Westwood network is engineered as a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) network. As always, you must have permission to use your device for school-related work. You can print to the color laserjet in the Computer lab from your mobile phone or computer. See the technology director for help setting up your device. You must be on the student wifi network in order to print. This does not give you access to your network U drive.

iPad Lab

The iPad Lab is used by elementary grades to introduce them to technology.

Every student at Westwood has a U Drive
Students can print from devices to the color laserjet.

Sign up for an Office Live ID

We recommend that you sign up for a Microsoft Office Live ID. This lets you access Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint online for free. If you have Microsoft Office at Home, you can sync your files between school and home using their service!

We also recommend the digital notetaking service One Note. This is a free Microsoft tool that will sync between computers, your mobile phone, and all devices using the Office Live ID. See our IT Director for help.
