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.

Westridge is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a $40,000 grant to establish a STEAMWork Design Studio, a space for hands-on learning designed to inspire creative, collaborative, cross-disciplinary problem-solving in science, technology, engineering, arts and humanities, and mathematics. A relatively new concept in education, the makerspace serves as a gathering space, often centered on technology, which offers opportunities to create, invent, and build things with other people.
