With classes ranging from Toddler to Senior High School, Westfields is here to keep your children on track throughout their school careers.
Each academic program caters to the age and skill level of the students. We believe that all children can learn if you teach them in a way that fits their learning style. As Albert Einstein once said, "If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” And so it is in education. One size does not fit all, and we use a variety of teaching styles, resources, and activities to help all children be successful.
Due to the current pandemic, all classes for the 2022 - 2023 school year will be held online. We have two programs to choose from.
WIS Education Online - This is our teacher-led program. You will receive all course books and materials, access to our online modules, and live classes via video conference. This program is designed for those students that would like to have "school at home," and requires daily attendance at prescribed times. Your grades will be based on classwork, homework, quizzes, and quarterly exams. Available for Toddler (age 2) through Grade 12.
WIStech - This is our independent study program. You will receive all course books and materials and access to our online modules which will include video lessons and self-paced activities. This program does not include live instruction from our teachers and is designed for students that wish to study independently or with a private tutor. You will take quarterly examinations online, and these exams will be the sole basis for your grades. Available for Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Face to Face - We are working very hard to be able to offer this program to you the soonest possible time. Rest assured that we are doing all necessary preparations and training as well as investing in technologies that will allow the Face to Face classes as hassle and worry free as possible.
