    Beinvenidos a la Escuela Westview!
    Witamy w szkole Westview!

    Thank you for taking a moment to visit the Westview Elementary School web site!

    Westview School serves approximately 335 students in grades 3, 4, and 5 from the city of Wood Dale, Illinois. We’re located in Northeast DuPage County, approximately 4 miles directly west of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.

    Having been principal at Westview School since the 2006-07 school year, I am proud of the collaborative spirit with which the faculty and staff approach student learning.  

    We have high expectations for academic achievement and continually make revisions to our curriculum and assessments in order to meet the rigor of the Common Core Standards as well as the Next Generation Science Standards.  However, we also embrace opportunities for students to discover a passion for learning within core academic areas, and beyond.  As a PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) school, we strive to incorporate Social/Emotional learning in all activities as well.  We are proud to be a DuPage County partner district with CASEL--the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning!  

    Our students enjoy a variety of opportunities which promote creativity and personal growth.  See the section called “Clubs/Activities” at the bottom of the margin on the left for more information. 

    We embrace the learning potential made possible through technology, and all students are provided a Chromebook and engaging instruction that helps them to utilize the internet in a safe and responsible manner, all with the support and guidance of involved parents. 

    Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend school functions and become involved with their child’s education through our very active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  Videos of each meeting are updated regularly as well.  Click on the “PTO Information” button on the left to learn more about opportunities to get involved. 

    This web site is designed to be a resource for parents and visitors who wish to learn more about the incredible students and staff that contribute to the positive environment at Westview each day.  To learn more about what is happening at our school throughout the year, click on the “Westview School News” button along the left margin.  That web site is updated regularly with school news and photos to give the community insight about what our students are experiencing each day.  We also invite you to follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook!   

    Finally, please take a moment to review our Vision and Mission statements which we take very seriously.  The entire Westview Staff and I look forward to serving you and your child as we strive to realize our vision of being an exemplary elementary school.

    Thank you, and enjoy your visit!
