Westminster Schools teach all children to become competent caring citizens in a changing world through a challenging curriculum and supportive environment.
Children are at the center of our educational process. We strive to help each child develop his or her greatest potential through well-balanced psychomotor, affective and cognitive skills. Our school provides a learning environment that meets the individual needs of the whole child, physical, emotional, social and intellectual. We create an atmosphere in which the child is encouraged to grow, to explore, to create, to learn, to exchange ideas, to question, to think critically, to develop self-esteem and self-direction, and to succeed.
We begin and end with student learning as our focus.
We value all members of our community as life-long learners.
We agree that learning and teaching begin with treating each other with thoughtfulness and respect.
