School Philosophy

At Westmount School, we focus on community and quality. We pride ourselves on building healthy relationships and promoting a comprehensive approach to student and staff well-being and mental health. We build on outstanding learning opportunities by setting high expectations for all learners with a strengths-based approach. We appreciate the impact of creating a culture of belonging among students, staff, and families where everyone feels safe to participate and engage as part of a community of learners.

We understand that belonging and achievement advance together. We focus on reading and writing strategies that build academic vocabulary and refine communication. We prioritize mathematical processes that provide the fluency skills to succeed. Teachers reflect on their students' experiences in the classroom through a lens of antiracism and reconciliation to promote an equity mindset, student agency, and community engagement.
