Special Education Programs

A Safe Place to Discover Your Purpose.

Westminster exists to create a safe space for students to find out why they are and flourish into who they are meant to be. We provide rich and fulfilling experiences for students, coupled with academic discipline and community involvement. Students leave Westminster feeling challenged, respected, valued and confident. 

At the core of Westminter's Pedagogy is the IB Learner Profile. Regardless of where our students fit academically, we believe that the IB Learner Profile is always applicable. We facilitate an environment where each and every Westminster student can be:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-Minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-Takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

At Westminster, we offer two Special Education programs to meet the needs of our students. 

The Strategies Program provides programming for students with learning disabilities who demonstrate average cognitive ability and significant academic delays. Students acquire strategies and skills necessary to achieve and understand their learning challenges, with the goal of returning to inclusive programming whether that is in the Regular Program or in the IBMYP.

The Behaviour and Learning Assistance Program assists students with chronic, extreme, pervasive anti-social behaviours. Programming supports students to achieve academically and to develop and apply acceptable behaviour and social skills in the classroom, school and community, with the goal of returning to inclusive programming whether that is in the Regular Program or in the IBMYP.
