Academics

Introduction

At Westfield Friends School, we work to ensure that our students develop a lifelong passion for learning. Accordingly, students are challenged with a rigorous academic curriculum that develops strong critical thinking skills in all subject areas.

Classroom discussions, along with team driven and independent project work encourage our students to be active, and self-actualized learners. Written communication skills are enhanced via work that emphasizes both creative and research writing, and regular presentation work within every grade builds public speaking and interpersonal skills. Critical thinking is encouraged in multiple areas, with special focus within science and math.

Many of Westfield’s teachers have their own websites to inform parents about class activities and to provide students with daily homework assignments or special classroom announcements. This school year, many teachers are using RenWeb for teacher sites and email communication to parents.
