Westmount Junior High School, established in 1913, has a rich history and plays an integral role in the communities of Dovercourt, Inglewood, Sherbrooke, Westglen, Westmount, and Woodcroft. In recent years, an increasing number of students from outside these communities have chosen to attend Westmount. We celebrate diversity at Westmount and we are very proud of our community, which includes a First Nations, Métis, and Inuit demographic of 35% and an English language learning cohort making up 12% of the student population. A welcoming atmosphere that recognizes all people is the hallmark of the Westmount Junior High experience. The area is in transition with growth anticipated as new young families move in and upgrade existing housing. Westmount Junior High is located near Westmount Mall and the 124 Street Business District.
Students are organized into four learning groups at each grade level for in-person or online instruction. Westmount offers Cree and French as second languages. We are a division site for Opportunity programming in a 7/8/9 classroom and we provide targeted support for English language learners in a sheltered ELL class. There is a strong belief in a strengths-based approach and high expectations for all students, no matter what classroom programming serves students. Westmount teachers integrate STEM educational experiences into our regular instruction and provide cross-curricular opportunities for all students. A variety of option courses are offered to provide students with well-rounded CTF programming. We promote student leadership and school community, model resiliency, and celebrate success.
