Overview

Overview

Westmark School says

Westmark School. The Difference is Brilliant.

Westmark School has been transforming lives for over 30 years, building on the strengths of students in grades 2-12 with dyslexia and ADHD, as well as math, reading & other language-based learning differences. These students shine when they discover that learning differently carries its own unique rewards.

Westmark differentiates instruction based on student need and allows children to discover not only their personal academic style but their strengths and areas of need as well. Through the integrated use of assistive and educational technologies, we spark the imaginations of our youngest learners, as they explore their world and learn to love learning again; ignite passions in our middle school students who discover their personal learning styles and strengths, and develop new interests, character and confidence to fulfill their potential; and illuminate futures for our high school students as they become seasoned communicators, self-directed learners, responsible members of society and critical thinkers who push past old limits and reach for success. In the classroom, on the stage and on the field, these bright students have what it takes, and Westmark has what they need: a warm and stimulating environment that turns struggle to strength and challenge to opportunity. Since its founding over 30 years ago, Westmark School has provided students with a college-preparatory curriculum and traditional independent school experience offering competitive athletic teams; performing, visual and digital arts programs; service and experiential learning; student leadership opportunities; and a variety of after school enrichment classes. Westmark is accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
