At West-Mont, we believe that a holistic education develops not only the mind, but also the body and soul of each student. The child’s intellect and imagination, physical fitness, health and nutrition, spiritual development and sense of humanity are key components in the West-Mont curriculum.
The Tree provides a suitable metaphor for West-Mont. The roots represent our youngest students, covering the Early Primary, Kindergarten and Grade One and Two classrooms. This is where they become “rooted” in their search for their inner self. This journey will last a lifetime and experiences at this stage are crucial for further growth and development.
The trunk represents the Grade Three to Six classrooms. This is where the majority of basic life skills are learned and refined. Positive habits of the mind, body and soul are becoming internalized. The children travel along a similar path towards increased independence, responsibility, and self-directed learning.
The branches represent the senior class, Grades Seven to Eight. The students are branching out with the knowledge that they have acquired and are going beyond the school’s boundaries for further exploration and the pursuit of personal interests and passions. Application of knowledge and individualized programs are key aspects at this level.
