School History

Construction on Westmount School started in 1913 and opened to students in 1915.  John Scoffield was the first principal and in 1918, Westmount was selected by the school board to be the first junior high school in the city.  

In 1971 an addition was built containing more classrooms, a new gymnasium and a dedicated music room.

A later renovation in 2000 added a new music room, art room, foods lab, sewing lab and construction lab to the basement.
