Directions to Campus

The Westridge campus is an inspiring, unique collection of buildings and spaces that date from as far back as 1902.  The aesthetic and functional qualities of the Westridge campus are inseparable from the school’s identity, and this relationship distinguishes Westridge as a school where learning transcends traditional classroom space and expands the girls’ experience.

Our campus stretches across an idyllic park-like setting in a quiet residential neighborhood. The trees, lawns, gardens, and pathways are favorite spots for studying, meeting friends, or enjoying solitude and reflection. Through the decades, we have acquired and maintained contemporary and historic architecture, including Pitcairn House, a craftsman built in 1906 by the influential early 20th Century architects Greene & Greene. In 2010, Westridge completed its most recent construction, the campus' first LEED-certified, environmentally-sustainable facility dedicated to girls studying science and math.
