Westridge School is a place where girls in grades 4 through 12 are educated to think critically and creatively; to embrace collaboration and independent learning; to embody confidence and conviction in what they say and do.

 Central to the Westridge School program is how girls learn. The benefit of a three-division school is the scaffolded program that builds, year after year, upon the foundation of developmental, intellectual, social, and emotional growth of young women. 

 We are  a school committed to each girl, to her unique qualities as an individual, to helping her find her voice and her chosen path. We are  a community that encourages her to explore her interests; to be a problem solver who is prepared, inquisitive, innovative, informed, and articulate.

 There is no singular Westridge experience. Westridge girls and teachers are as different as fingerprints and so, too, are their experiences of, and at, Westridge School. Together, the institution and the individuals breathe life into Westridge. As a sum of very diverse parts,

We are Westridge.


Founded in 1913, Westridge School is a 100-year-old
independent day school for collegebound girls, grades 4 through 12, 
located in Pasadena, California.

The theme emulates Head of School Elizabeth McGregor's Convocation message that the entire Westridge community recommit to our core values: integrity, respect, responsibility and inclusion.
"As we enter into our second century and reflect on where we wish to go, the time seems right to reaffirm and recommit to these values that can be at the heart of all we stand for-- our core values ... integrity, respect, responsibility and inclusion."
