It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
As you walk into the spacious entrance of our middle school it becomes obvious why this building, built in 1991, was named "Westview". The view of the Rocky Mountains is breathtaking and reminds us how fortunate we are to live in Colorado. The building has received numerous architectural awards for its reflection of the mountain backdrop.
Of course, Westview is more than a building. It is a learning community consisting of approximately 775 students, 60 staff members, and a host of involved parents. Together, we strive to uphold the school motto, "Expect the Best". Students are encouraged to work toward their academic potential, to build upon productive peer relations, and to develop positive self-esteem through accomplishing their goals. To support these ideas, the school was created using the concept of Student and Teacher Progression. Students receive instruction in their core academic subjects from the same team of teachers during all three years of their middle level experience.
In addition to core subjects, students are required to learn about their world by taking additional classes provided through our STEM Block and elective programs. Students take classes in art, technology, foreign language, digital photography, computer programming, music, physical education and other extended learning opportunities.
Westview Middle School takes pride in the efforts and accomplishments of its community.
The mission of Westview Middle School is to foster a community where we teach the whole child to think critically and creatively to ensure high academic growth and achievement in order to be successful in an ever-changing future.
We envision a high-achieving STEM middle school that enhances learning for our community by connecting learning beyond the walls of the classroom through the use of technology. Our students will problem solve, collaborate, communicate, innovate, and construct meaning through Project-Based Learning to be prepared to be successful in a digital and global society.
