A Place for Everyone
At Westminster, we envision a holistic approach to education. Combining academics, arts, athletics and real life experiences, we seek to create equal opportunities for all of our students. Every student has a voice. Every student has a unique story to tell. Westminter is place for everyone.
Happy New Year to all of our current and prospective Warrior families! Westminster is for students who want diverse extracurricular activities, options and teaching methods. All of our Warriors know they have opportunities to be involved and engaged in and outside of the classrooom. We standout for our exceptional programming, academic excellence and dedication to giving back to the community.
We continue to watch our building transform and our school culture excel as we undergo a transformation of our facility and our IBMYP. Our main gym is a great place to catch all the action with new basketball frames/boards, new crash mats, refinished floors, new acoustical spray on the ceiling and new paint that the celebrates our Warrior Spirit! The Library Learning Commons has offiically opened and now offers students an engaging, inviting and curious place to play board games, read a new book, work on their studies or hang out with their friends. Students who take Foods as an option have opportunity to design their food challenges in our new, fully equippped Foods Lab and our hallways, open spaces and our classrooms are getting a new coat of paint, branded with Warrior Spirit!
We are excited to welcome students and families to our fresh and engaging learning environment at our Open House on Tuesday, March 6th at 6:30 PM.

Education is about hope and believing that everyone can have the opportunity to be who they want to be and do what they want do. Westminster School is a safe place for students to discover their purpose; it's a place where kids can find their kindred spirits and where teachers are dedicated and interested in our students. At the core of Westminter's pedagogy is the IB Learner Profile which is built on high standards of student work, behaviour, community involvement, and school spirit. We are a dynamic place to learn, grow and have fun.
On behalf of the staff, it is a privilege to welcome you to Westminster School. We are a place for everyone.
