What Makes Us Unique?

Westover Elementary offers youngsters in kindergarten through fifth grade a unique educational approach that builds the foundation for a lifetime of continuous learning. Rather than simply providing an atmosphere of education, Westover creates an environment for education based on the following principles:

 

 Both the academic and psychological needs of a child must be nurtured if total and continuous learning is to take place.

 The best learning environment is one that encourages cooperation rather than individual competition.

 All children are gifted and are entitled to be treated accordingly.

 Since parents are the primary teachers of their children, it is only through the cooperative efforts of both home and school that children can receive the best education possible.

The many benefits of our school include:

 

 Smaller class size leading to better teacher- student ratio

 Looping (same teacher, same students for 2 years)

 Flexible grouping
