Welcome West Field Wildcats! Our mission is WEST: Where Everyone Succeeds Together. We are so excited to partner together toward our goal of nurturing each child’s social, emotional, and intellectual development in order to maximize a positive learning environment. 

At West Field, our job is to keep it safe, and our students’ job is to help keep it that way. Every adult is a Safekeeper, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We know you are entrusting us with your most precious gift: your children! We always follow the Wildcat Code: Be respectful, Be Responsible, Be Ready to Learn. We know our student creed by heart: We are proud West Field Wildcats. We are responsible for our own behavior. We will learn from our own mistakes. We will apply the Life Principles each day. As members of West Field, we value and respect others. We will make today what we wish it to be; it is our choice! 

We are proud to be a Great Expectations (GE) Model School. The basic tenets of of GE are: 

  • All children can learn

  • An established  environment of mutual respect

  • High expectations for all

  • Teachers display knowledge, skills, positive attitudes and lead with responsibility

Conscious Discipline is another important part of our school family as we practice the skills and learn self-regulation strategies that help us every day. 

We are looking forward to continuing a legacy of excellence, and creating new memories with all our Wildcats. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or ideas. We like to say West is BEST– and we couldn’t do it without YOU. 

Make today what you wish it to be; it is your choice!
