At Westview, we believe that S.T.E.M. encompasses more than science, technology, engineering and math. We focus on developing strong 21st century skills in all of our classes. Westview works hard to develop global leaders in our students and a strong community. We accomplish this in many ways through our teams and our student and teacher progression model where students travel with the same set of core teachers for three years. We also have a diverse and rich elective program and these classes are critical to the development of for each individual student at Westview.
