The Westfield Day School 5

Westfield is a small school where the academic and therapeutic needs of the children are extremely individualized. The administration and teachers very quickly identified the unique and challenging needs of my son and are able to work with him in a manner that is helping him be successful both socially and academically. They are able to provide extremely diverse programs to meet the varying needs of their students. This school has allowed my son to start to develop positive self worth and enjoy school. I believe that Pam Heldman and Peter Schoenholtz are extremely invested in the success of each child. The current mix of children and staff creates a welcoming environment that incentivizes the child to learn and grow.

Westfield is a unique place for young people to learn and grow. Its therapuetic environment is supportive of students with psychiatric or emothional issues. The staff is there because they love working with students in this age group. Students and staff coexist as a warm, supportive community. NYS and CT curriculums are followed and students success on Regents exams are impressive. This is a one of a kind school that serves a very unique purpose. I am very impressed with what I discovered when observing the school

I am a former teacher of Westfield Day School. While it was once a safe haven for students to come and learn in their own styles, it has become a dumping ground. Myself and other teachers left once the son (Mark Weiner) of the former headmaster (Judith Weiner) was removed.

I have taught at Westfield Day School for a number of years and can say without hesitation that the level of academic work prepares students to pass their state exams and attend high quality colleges. Many of my students have done just that. I highly recommend Westfield Day School.

Several private school headmasters we spoke to in Westchester highly recommended Westfield as an alternative to a boarding school for our emotionally fragile teen. With only 15 to 18 students attending at any given time, the kids get an unbelievable amount of attention from instructors. Some kids come for a few weeks, some for a month, and others, like our kids, wind up coming back to finish their high school experience, prep for college and graduate. ONe on one counseling twice a week and weekly group therapy seems to work for my child. She is getting both academic support, preparation for further education, and the therapeutic component has helped keep her stable. We were drowning in the public high school, this school really stabilized her. I would be happy to speak to any parent considering this school.
