Recognized as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School and home to the district teacher of the year, Westwood is celebrating another accomplishment with the groundbreaking for its brand new community school.
Since 1950, Westwood has been an integral part of its residential neighborhood. Understanding its importance to the community, the District chose to locate the new school adjacent to its current location. When complete, the new two-story 93,000 SF school will be home to 600 energetic neighborhood kids.
The design of the school will blend well into the neighborhood. Large old trees on the new site will be preserved to provide shade for outdoor learning and play areas. And the clock tower, which identifies the main entrance, will include an eagle weather vane atop it. Go Eagles!
