Westwood intends that its graduates go out into the world not just
to do great things, but to do the right things.
Westwood offers a unique blend of the IB and the Montessori philosophy. This combination fosters independent thinking and encourages students to develop a sense of their own competence while encouraging academic, social, and intellectual exploration.
The Westwood School is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School offering the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) grades 7-10 and the IB Diploma Programme (DP) grades 11-12. The world-renowned International Baccalaureate curriculum emphasizes depth and breadth in each subject area as well as interaction between subjects.
Westwood provides the opportunity for self-motivated, independent students to develop intellect and build character through a balanced and integrated curriculum.
Our prime focus is to provide a caring and productive learning environment. Challenging academic and extra-curricular programs encourage students to reach their highest potential and, ultimately, become life-long learners.
Westwood is committed to our students’ awareness of global responsibility as well as their intellectual development. Students probe current political and social scenarios within the framework of international mindedness.
Last year, 50% of Westwood graduates went to international universities, 25% went out-of-state, and 25% remained in-state.
