From Interim Principal Meritt

I am excited to be the interim principal of Westwood Charter Elementary until the school community selects the new principal.  I am fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members. The school's vision of quality education has remained constant, as its belief that students need to triumph academically, socially, and emotionally. Westwood is a collaborative community of learners where students develop skills to become critical thinkers and responsible global citizens, where they are compassionate, inclusive, resilient, perseverant, resourceful, and ethical.  The school values our students’ social-emotional development as much as their academic development.

The school community is based on collaboration—between students, teachers, and the community.  Parent involvement is welcomed and an integral part of the Westwood community.  Through generous donations from parents and community members, the school able to provide classes in visual arts, music, gardening, dance, computer science, and physical education.  The integrated curriculum provide students a rich, balanced curriculum that celebrates the whole child.
