Within our school, we offer high-quality intervention services for Emergent Bilingual Learners. Students using English as a Second Language will be provided with intervention services from our ESL coordinator, Ms. Wanda Washington.
Students will participate in reading and math assessments through the STAR Renaissance Platform. Students will participate in Freckle assignments on their computer which are directly connected to their progress made with STAR diagnostic testing. We strive each day to provide data-driven instruction to students, these platforms are helping our students reach success and achieve their learning standards for Kindergarten-5th Grade.
Our students are encouraged to participate in character building and leadership roles. They may participate in a variety of activities throughout the school year. Peer helpers and mentors are just a few of the programs available at Westhills to empower the students with the tools they need to become productive citizens.
