A Message from Admissions
MESSAGE FROM ADMISSIONS
Welcome to Westmark!
Westmark School students from grades 2 through 12 have diagnosed language-based learning differences, like dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia, often combined with ADD/ADHD or other auditory or visual processing challenges. They also have bright minds and unique learning styles, but have not been fully served in a traditional school environment. Since our students learn differently, we teach differently.
Westmark’s community of parents, students, educators and staff takes pride in our differences. We are a diverse group with a common journey. We promote the growth and development of each student as they discover their passions, strengths and affinities and learn to advocate for themselves. Our students enjoy coming to school, look forward to classes and discover that despite what they may have thought of themselves before they came to Westmark, they are important and valuable people who have a lot to contribute.
Research shows that parents who are actively involved with their child’s educational journey have a profound impact on their overall academic and emotional success. In partnership with classroom teachers, the administration, and staff, parents are expected to partner with Westmark in supporting their child's academic and social experience. They do this by committing to open and full communication with the school.
I look forward to introducing you to our school and invite you to visit our campus. You will have a chance to experience our classrooms and programs, and you will have a chance to see the difference our expert faculty makes in each of our student’s lives.
To begin the admissions process, we encourage you to explore our website, and then call for an informational tour and meeting. Our admissions application and supporting documents are available online. I am available at any time during the process to answer questions.
We look forward to meeting you and your family!
