Their academic results and college acceptances confirm that the inclusivity of Westwood is a successful educational model.”
The Pam Butler High School Scholarship, named for Westwood’s founder, has been established to recognize students who want to pursue a well-rounded, challenging, international education. To qualify for the scholarship, students must be first time applicants to Westwood. The scholarship will cover Westwood tuition for up to 4 years of the IB high school program.
First-time Westwood high school applicants who complete the scholarship application by the May 25 deadline will be considered for the scholarship based on their demonstrated abilities in these 6 areas

“We invite students who want to join our community and prepare to positively impact their world community to apply for The Pam Butler High School Scholarship,” notes Heather Lourcey, Head of School for The Westwood School.
Recognized by Newsweek as a top IB school in the nation, the School encourages students to apply what they’ve learned Vs simply acquiring knowledge. With a low student/teacher ratio, Westwood teachers work with each student individually preparing them for life. Everything centers on the balanced development of character, community, personal life skills and academic excellence.
