School Learning Plan
Westview High School
Westview High School welcomes approximately 2400 students from diverse backgrounds and experiences, guided by 187 certified and classified staff members. We celebrate our diversity and the 49 different home languages that enter our building daily. We seek to understand our numbers and not rely on percentages. We are motivated by the 92% of our seniors who graduated on time last year. However, we are driven to dive into the stories of the 8% (approximately 50 students) who did not graduate and work to find solutions. Simply put, much of Westview’s data looks great on paper and we are proud of it, but we constantly need to keep the numbers in front of us to be sure we don't miss any of our students. At a school as large as Westview, 5% of our student body equals 120 of our students.
Westview’s teacher leadership team worked together to establish a framework we expect all students to experience in each of our classrooms, we call this The Westview Experience.
1. At Westview, I can expect a safe and supportive learning environment where all voices are valued, classroom culture is built on clear expectations, and community is created intentionally.
2. At Westview, I can expect to be challenged, encouraged, and supported by educators who know what I need to do my best.
3. At Westview, I can expect educators to connect with students about personal and academic successes and challenges.
4. At Westview, I can expect to contribute to everyone’s success through interaction and collaboration. (student talk)
5. At Westview, I can expect to have my own curiosity honored and supported through choice in my inquiry, and learning.
As we build collective efficacy around these experiences in our classrooms, we are also working to provide a consistency around academic expectations and experiences for all students. Westview’s staff is dedicated to the continued learning and growth in our ABAR work and it will be intentionally included in our PD time together. We understand this is ever-going and will remain at the top of our priorities.
