At Westview, our middle school addresses the multi-level academic needs of our students while replicating a traditional middle school format. Students are grouped in homerooms by age and social functioning. However, they are grouped during academic classes according to achievement level. This allows our skilled teachers to better target instruction to the needs of of each student through group and individual learning strategies.
Students also have the opportunity to transition from one class to another, use lockers, and develop and use the self-management skills that they will need as they continue their educations and lives.
Objectives for all students are to achieve academic advancement, improve skills for effective communication and more successfully integrate into age-appropriate social activities and settings.
