FYP (K-3)

The Foundation Years Program (FYP) comprises Grades K-3. This is a teacher-managed Program that concentrates, in a warm, engaging atmosphere, on ensuring the students develop very strong, secure, foundation skills, particularly in English and Math.

In these grades, students are introduced to a greater variety of teachers while still overseen by a homeroom teacher. The curriculum established in the foundation years continues with the addition of information technology, mainly in the form of coding.

The Middle Years Program (MYP) comprises Grades 7-9. The curriculum here is arranged to allow students to proceed unconstrained by such artificial barriers as age and ‘grade level’. Each student belongs both to a homeroom and to a cross-graded house teams.

The Miniversity is The Westside School’s response to the needs of senior students who aspire to university studies. We know from the constant cries of the university Presidents and Faculty that too many students arrive ill-equipped for the demands of university.

Testimonials

“The Westside School is one of few that is preparing students to the future in the most efficient way where the focus is “how to learn” not “what to learn”. The teachers and staff are giving considerable time and efforts to enhance students’ soft skills aside with the hard ones via a continuous set of authentic activities and projects that are taking place throughout the academic year. In addition to all that my kids are happy, enjoying their school day and they love their school. I’m quite lucky to have my kids in The Westside School.”

Marwa, Parent

“The teachers at The Westside Schools are really friendly. They are not in any rush. If you don’t understand it, they’ll break it down for you into digestible bites.”

Sam, Grade 12

“My teachers taught me what it would be like in University. They had high standards for me and they knew that I was capable of doing more than I was doing. I was constantly trying to do better and better, so that when I went to University, everything would be easier. And that’s exactly what happened.”
