Our WASC-accredited program is open to motivated, college-bound students of average to superior intellectual ability, who are underachieving in traditional school settings and could benefit from a more personalized academic program in order to realize their academic potential. We are committed to helping our students grow in the areas of attention, receptive language, expressive language, focus, critical thinking and concentration.
At Westview, we take pride in offering personal attention from experienced and credentialed special education teachers, who are trained to deal with a variety of learning styles and differences. With a maximum of twelve pupils per class, students are afforded the kind of individualized support that results in personal success in the school environment.
A variety of different instructional methods are utilized in the classroom. Instruction addresses multiple learning modalities and is tailored to meet each student’s unique learning style. To supplement content delivery, many of our teachers focus on building traditional study skills including attending to lectures, note taking, participation in classroom discussion, daily homework, preparing for midterms and finals, and completing research reports.
