At Westview School of Arts and Technology, we believe creating successful students begins with an emphasis on educating the whole child in a positive, vibrant campus school climate, where students can feel supported and connected on many levels. Whether it be in an academic, social, athletic, inventive, or artistic capacity, we honor the individual and strive to inspire our students to become their very best. Westview creates continuous learning experiences that provide students the space and freedom for intellectual discovery, fostering not only our students’ curiosity and imagination, but their personal identities and interests as well. Because school connectedness is one of the most important variables in a student’s academic success and social-emotional growth, we truly make an effort to promote a sense of belonging and community among our student body, parents, and staff. Students can feel inspired, accepted, and encouraged to believe in and highlight their own independent talents and abilities. We incorporate an innovative educational model combining traditional, therapeutic, and practical skills preparing students with the confidence and competency to thrive in today’s diverse global community. With access to advanced technology in the classroom via our cutting-edge, on-campus Innovation Lab, or our exciting visual and performing arts departments, along with sponsored events such as, art and technology exhibitions, coffee houses, and theatre productions, our students have the opportunity to brainstorm, to think differently, and find their individual voice in pursuit of new challenges. When students interface with their teachers, peers, counselors, and administrators in positive, meaningful ways, this truly shapes their lives and teaches them how to construct valuable, self-assured, rewarding relationships.
Therefore, we humbly make it our mission to promote student engagement through a guided, innovative curriculum in a therapeutic, inclusive atmosphere; further knowing that, when individualized academics are coupled with restorative practices, students transform social-emotional, physical, and learning challenges into life-changing opportunities for growth!
Mr. Matthew Wilkens, M.A.,
