A Wealth of Learning Experiences and a Strong Academic Program
Westgate Elementary School offers children in Kindergarten through grade 5 a wealth of varied learning experiences.
Westgate has an established and successful educational program that includes both single-age and multi-age classes. Kindergarten children are placed together in single-grade kindergarten classes. Beginning in grade 1, children may be placed in single-grade classes or in multi-age classes incorporating two grades into one classroom.
Westgate staff members work with parents to ensure that all children are placed in classrooms that meet their needs. The emphasis at Westgate is on providing developmentally appropriate hands-on instruction that children view as purposeful and relevant, where children are motivated and invested in their learning.
For a discussion of curriculum, special services, and other programs, see District 25's Department of Student Learning and Student Services pages.
