Westerly School develops the whole child through a challenging and stimulating program in an inclusive and diverse community. We ignite within each child a lifelong love of learning by encouraging them to discover their full and unique potential every single day. Our students develop a true sense of self through meaningful opportunities for self-expression, service, and character development. Westerly graduates are leaders, helpers, and creators today and in the future.

Core Values:

We believe in developing the whole child through an educational program that balances academic mastery, creative expression, critical thinking, socio-emotional awareness, and physical development.

We believe in celebrating and understanding the differences in viewpoint, culture, and capabilities of each individual child so they may serve as compassionate & global minded citizens.

We believe in illuminating the joys of learning through collaborative inquiry, experiential based learning, and real world connections.

We believe that cultivating a safe and trusting community begins with a place where students are seen and known, allowing them to take academic and emotional risks, resulting in a strong sense of self, individual confidence and integrity. 

We believe in engaging our young leaders through authentic service opportunities to understand the value of giving back to the community on both a local and global scale.
