Westerly Student Values

Westerly School’s positive and supportive school climate is made possible through the participation of the whole school community – faculty and staff, parents and family, and of course, the students. A positive climate exists when all members of the school community feel safe, comfortable, and accepted. A core set of values, agreed upon by members of the school community, have been established to provide students guidelines for positive choices. 

Westerly Students Are...
