Students are encouraged to speak their minds, but not at the risk of hurting someone's feelings.

Yes, the mentor-mentee program really helps with fostering those skills, along with the seven core values I mentioned in my previous response.

The school uses Seven Core values/survival skills to make sure that the students are getting all of their needs met--the Whole Child Philosophy is implemented on a daily basis.

We LOVE Westerly! We have been there for 6 years and have two children attending. The teachers and staff are amazing and really care about the students and take the time to really get to know them. The extra curricular classes are wonderful and my children learn something new everyday. PE, music, theater, Spanish, and art--what more could we ask for?

Our daughter has benefitted so much from the individual relationships she has with several teachers at Westerly. She still talks to her Kindergarten teacher, who is still interested in hearing about her day.

We have had our child at Westerly for 4 years and have not encountered any teacher that was not committed and enthusiastic about teaching.

Amount of homework: Just right

Homework, although it is part of the curriculum, is not the emphasis at this school. The homework is reasonably limited and is tied to topics the students are learning in class, so there is not a lot of overly ambitious expectations.


Westerly School of Long Beach
Develops grit: Strongly agree

The program, across the board, aims to integrate academic disciplines into projects. The complexity of these projects requires students to stay committed and keep working toward goals.

Absolutely. Conflicts between students do happen at Westerly as they do any school, but the way they are dealt with is substantially different. The students are spoken to with respect and take a role in owning and correcting their behavior.
