Our Community School

wwc_color1.jpgWestwood Charter School is an inclusive, child-centered environment where children feel safe to take risks. It is a community dedicated to educating the whole child. Our students are actively engaged in learning through a curriculum that is both developmental and experiential. Our students are challenged to construct knowledge through meaningful interactions with each other and the world and are agents of change as they embrace their connections to the local and global community. Westwood Charter School is an affiliated charter and a member of the Los Angeles Unified School District and a California Distinguished School. It has been a charter school since July 26, 1993.


Chill Zone is a chance for parents to volunteer at lunch recess. In the Chill Zone, students in Grades 1-5 engage with each other during recess in non-sports related activities, including board games, Legos, and engaging with eachother at recess.

First Parent & Student Community Council! (PSCC)

"New Beginnings, New Goals!" Wednesday, September 28, 2016


Dear Westwood Families,

We warmly invite you to be a part of our first Parent & Student Community Council of this school year on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in our Auditorium.  This evening allows you to gather with fellow parents, students, and Westwood teachers to be a member of our special community in an intimate and meaningful way.


Featured Teachers This Month:

Steph Higa

Matt Gaydos

Diana Greenstein

Mandy Pierce

Annalee Kennedy

Rachel Cannella

Bernadette Duffy


Council is the practice of speaking and listening from the heart.  Through compassionate, heartfelt expression and empathetic listening, Council offers an effective means of communicating.  It provides a common experience and shared vision for sound decision-making and conflict resolution.  It is also a valuable learning tool that enables children to express themselves thoughtfully and with confidence.

Your child participates in Council on a regular basis at our school.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to experience with your child, what has become common practice at Westwood Charter.  COME BE A PART OF THE CIRCLE!


Please RSVP to Diana Greenstein directly at by Friday, September 23, 2016.
