Westridge is committed to the all-around health and wellness of each student. Educational excellence occurs in an environment that engages the heart, intellect, body, and soul.
Intent on educating the whole girl, each division incorporates opportunities outside of academia where students can discuss topics relating to general well being.
The school offers a sequential health and wellness program grounded in the developmental needs of girls to support their emotional, social, and physical growth. We build study skills and time management into academic classes to promote a balance between time spent on school work and outside interests.
Peer-to-Peer Counseling: Upper School students who complete a yearlong Peer-to-Peer intensive elective course in successive years can become peer instructors and coordinators, and advanced students are encouraged to volunteer in community programs such as the suicide prevention hotline, teen line, and violence prevention hotlines.
Westridge employs a full time, licensed school counselor who provides brief supportive counseling for students in distress. We also provide a valuable list of referrals and resources to parents regarding a variety of developmental, social, emotional, and educational needs.
