THANK YOU for your interest in becoming a part of Westerly School. We are excited to get to know you – and your entire family! – as you explore all that Westerly has to offer.
The Westerly experience is a unique one: a challenging curriculum balanced with a supportive and inclusive learning environment where students feel safe taking risks and learning who they are as individuals. We know that academic and social growth are equally important to your child’s overall development. Over the course of your Westerly experience, our devoted faculty will serve as teachers, mentors, coaches – and friends. When you join Westerly, you truly become part of a greater family.
Indeed, Westerly is a family school. Our parents and family members play a vital role in the development of our students and the greater school community. We attract families who are just as committed to our mission and values as we are, and we are so grateful for the “family” we have created here.
Our goal – always - is to illuminate curiosity and the joy of learning through trust, confidence and balanced adventure. Self-esteem. Self-awareness. Compassion. Respect. Determination. Critical thinking. Determination. Our students have the chance to build all of these qualities during their years at Westerly. It’s a place where students learn how to make a difference in the world around them – and feel passionate about doing so.
If you are interested in learning more about the Westerly experience, please attend one of our monthly Community Visit Days. These visits are the best way to see Westerly in action, as they allow you to see our teachers, our approach to instruction, and our campus up close. (Click here for a list of dates and to RSVP.)
We look forward to getting to know you and your family. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to help!
