And having just gotten back from Westminster Woods, I was really impressed at how good-natured the Westlake kids are. So I guess that means the school is strong at all those levels.”

How is Westlake Charter School Different?

Individualization

WCS is dedicated to providing a rigorous and challenging education for all students based on their individual academic and social needs. Through the use of student assessment data, Westlake Charter is committed to offering a learner-centered program that is focused on a project-based, thematic approach.

Worldliness

WCS recognizes that we live in a world where national cultures are converging and civilization is becoming more interrelated. Our school strives to provide our students with the skills necessary to embrace cultural diversity and the mindset that they can make a difference in the world around them.

Technology

At WCS, we want our students to be excited about what they learn. Research shows that 21st century learners excel when their education is interactive, project-based, and relevant. At Westlake Charter School we look to move our classrooms beyond the confines of school walls with technology.

Specialties

At WCS we recognize that all students have different gifts and talents. We provide various experiences to help students discover and cultivate those talents. We recognize that education should go beyond the core subject areas. As a result, we strive to provide learning opportunities that are hands-on.
