Welcome to Westview!

We are incredibly excited to begin our 3rd year here with The Help Group! This promises to be a year filled with wonderful opportunities for academic and social emotional success for all of our students as we strive to find ways to continue to support your unique child. We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms with a focus on post graduate and college opportunities in a therapeutic environment to encourage personal growth and a confident approach to learning!

During this school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, a safe and compassionate learning environment, and continued excellence in education. Our vision remains to provide the right set of programmatic needs and individualized attention to allow students to enjoy success in school. We believe in the multi-faceted approach to education, including a full complement of academic courses, plus a variety of extra-curricular activities and enrichment programs. Small class sizes enhance the academic experience. We strive for our Westview graduates to be educated, socially integrated and motivated to go out in the world and pursue their interests successfully

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us. We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!

Again, we welcome you to Westview and to our wonderful learning community . . . a place alive with much energy . . . enthusiasm . . . and a high standard of excellence! We are a place where opportunities for personal and academic growth abound! Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
