We are an independent, forward-thinking girls' school committed to educating intellectually adventurous thinkers and courageous, compassionate leaders. We strive to prepare young women to live lives of meaning, contribution, and impact. We are a vibrant and diverse community grounded in the commitment to goodness in all aspects of life and learning. At Westridge, girls gain the confidence and courage to stand up and speak for the ideals of responsibility and integrity as they take their places in an ever-changing world.
Our esteemed faculty members serve as guides to students embarking on the journey to find their chosen paths. Our teachers are mentors, facilitators, and coaches. They challenge our students in the best possible ways to explore, to read, write, think, create and compute so that they have a breadth and depth of experience that gives them the confidence to seek the path to college and beyond – to blaze trails as informed, ethical, and empathetic young women in a world that desperately needs their leadership and compassion.
The fundamental purpose of Westridge School is to develop in girls their intellectual and creative powers and their unique qualities as individuals. Essential to the school's purpose is the commitment to be a community that reflects and values diversity, respects individual differences, and responds to a changing dynamic world.
An intellectually engaging and challenging curriculum prepares students to continue their education in college and beyond as discerning, motivated learners committed to excellence and goodness in everything they do. The program offers balance among humanities, mathematics, sciences, visual and performing arts, technology, and athletics. A Westridge education offers both a path to self-discovery and personal fulfillment and an awareness of all peoples' essential interdependence, places, and cultures.
Westridge strives to develop young women whose joy in learning, personal integrity, courage, compassion, and commitment to ethical action and social and environmental responsibility will lead them to meaningful lives as contributing citizens of the larger world.
In an increasingly interdependent and interconnected world, Westridge School educates girls with the skills to recognize, respect, and embrace all kinds' diversity. Westridge's core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, and inclusion express the community's aspirational goals. The culture of Westridge emerges from the consistent and conscientious pursuit of these ideals, whose power to inspire and guide our individual and collective actions builds a vibrant and thriving community. Westridge draws strength from the diversity of cultures, voices, and values in its community and will ensure that a culture of inclusion remains a school's commitment.
