Social, emotional, and physical wellness are essential for students to achieve their academic potential. Westmark School employs one full-time School Psychologist, one full-time School Counselor, and one full-time School Nurse to ensure students feel confident, connected, healthy, and secure throughout the school day.

Counseling Services

Our Counseling Department, including a full-time School Psychologist and a full-time School Counselor, offers short-term individual and group counseling services to nurture Westmark students’ social, emotional, and mental well-being. Referring to the latest research in neuroscience and understanding the unique challenges of students with language-based learning differences, the Counseling Department provides targeted interventions and strategies to foster students’ overall growth and development. The School Psychologist oversees the department and primarily serves Grades 7–12; the School Counselor primarily serves Grades 2–6. The Counseling Department also offers appropriate referrals to outside professionals and collaborates with external support services, ensuring that students receive comprehensive care and access to the resources they need. Westmark’s Counseling Department aims to empower students, strengthen their resilience, and equip them with the tools they need to thrive academically and personally.

Health Services

Westmark’s full-time School Nurse is the primary liaison between the School, families, and medical agencies and officials. The nurse manages all students’ health and immunization records; tends to injuries and illnesses; oversees routine and special medical needs, from administering prescriptions to addressing other health conditions; and provides accurate and consistent communication to families throughout the school year.
