By connecting prior knowledge to new experiences, students have their curiosity nurtured as they explore the various disciplines through a thematic integrated approach.

  • Academically rich curriculum catered to the needs of each individual student
  • Positive learning environment that encourages students to take risks and be themselves
  • Developing caring, global citizens who are life-long learners

Play Is The Work Of Children

At Westbury Friends School, learning goes beyond the acquisition of skills and information; students are taught to ask thoughtful questions in the spirit of curiosity, intellectual integrity and creativity. They learn to resolve conflicts peacefully, through purposeful listening and engagement in the process of reaching solutions that are agreeable to all involved. Students explore and embrace cultural, religious, personal and economic diversity through studies of their local and global communities, and through the daily interactions with peers who are both similar and different from one another. Through active service learning experiences in their own communities and around the globe, students develop a sense of responsibility as stewards of the earth, and caring citizens of the world.

The classrooms of WFS are filled with wonder, curiosity and joy. Cooperative teaching and learning, integrated thematic instruction, problem solving curricula across the disciplines, and the recognition of and respect for individual learning styles bring spirit to the educational process.

2016-2017 School Year – 1st grade
