Vision Statement

Westgate Community School is a community-centered, gifted K-12 school that embraces whole-child learning and serves all students by encouraging creativity, authenticity, inclusivity, collaboration, and academic excellence.


Welcome to Westgate Community School, where we embrace a small-by-design ethos to cultivate an enriching educational experience for our students. With an average kindergarten class size of 18 students and an average of 25 students per class from first grade through high school, we ensure an environment that prioritizes individualized attention and fosters strong connections.
Our unique team structure, spanning from first grade through high school, with an average team size of 100 students, promotes dynamic multi-grade interaction. Whether it's the 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, or 9-12 team, students have the opportunity to form friendships with peers of varying ages, enriching their educational journey.
At Westgate, we believe in the numerous benefits of a small school environment. Students thrive with focused attention in the classroom, benefiting from personalized interactions with our dedicated staff. Our tight-knit community fosters strong relationships among students, staff, and families alike, ensuring that every individual is known and valued. With fewer disruptions and ample opportunities for active participation in both academic and extracurricular activities, students can truly engage and excel.
Committed to our core belief in what is best for our students, we have no plans to expand our school size. At Westgate Community School, we prioritize quality over quantity, ensuring that each student receives the attention and support they need to flourish academically, socially, and personally.
