Philosophy & Goals

  • Westmoore High School believes that our primary goal is to prepare our students to be productive and responsible members of our society.
  • We acknowledge from the outset that each student has different talents and abilities. Consequently, our efforts to bring about productive and responsible individuals must take these differences into account.
  • We encourage the acquisition of academic and vocational skills that will prepare students to transmit the technology of the future. Moreover, we believe that these skills are best acquired through thinking, the management of resources, and the experience of the challenges, fulfillment and joy of learning.
  • We encourage responsibility among our students by exposing them to cultural, artistic, and social skills and moral values. We encourage respect for the human and civil rights of others by treating our students with respect and equality.
