Westbrook’s Commitment to ALL Children in Our Schools

Westbrook Public Schools is committed to the success of every child by supporting the individual and unique needs of all children in a positive, inclusive, empathetic, and caring school community.  Westbrook Public Schools believes and values that all children are unique individuals with different needs, interests, talents, and passions and that our schools and school community are deeply committed to embracing and supporting those differences. 

Westbrook Public Schools believes that to ensure the success of all students and the educational priorities identified in our Westbrook Portrait of a Graduate, we need to ensure equitable access and delivery of educational services. Equitable access in Westbrook Public Schools means providing resources, experiences, opportunities, and supports to meet the varied and individual needs of each student.

Westbrook Portrait of a Graduate

  

The school community and the community of Westbrook collaborated to share their perspectives and values about educational priorities for all students in Westbrook Public Schools.  The Board approved the Westbrook Portrait of a Graduate in 2022.  We are proud of the inclusive nature of our community discourse and confident that our shared vision of the Westbrook Portrait of Graduate represents well the educational values and beliefs of the Westbrook community for the youth of Westbrook.  The Westbrook Portrait of a Graduate includes six priority attributes that describe the Westbrook High School graduate: critical problem-solver, creative thinker, effective communicator, perseverant, socially aware, and responsible decision maker.

During the 2023-2024 school year, our school leaders, educators, and students have been hard at work learning what each Westbrook Portrait of a Graduate attribute means in their day to day experiences in our schools in the classroom and in a wide range of activities.  To learn more about the progress of our work at each school and district-wide, please visit one of the following links.

  • Smarter Balanced Assessments at Daisy

    Dear Families of Third- and Fourth-Grade Students,

    I'm reaching out to notify you that our students in grades 3 and 4 will be participating in Smarter Balanced Assessments over the next two weeks at Daisy.

    These standardized assessments are not something that your child needs to prepare for as they are simply a check on instruction that students have been involved in all throughout the school year.  We just ask that you help your child to be best prepared by being fully rested; on time to school each morning; and fueled for the day.  It's helpful, always, to get a good night's sleep and students will do well to have breakfast--either at home or on arrival at school--each day.

    The assessments are scheduled for mornings and there are five sessions (split between Reading and Mathematics) over the next two weeks for each class.

    Thanks so much for helping your child to be ready for school--and on time each day--in order to do their best.

    Sincerely,

    Ruth W. Rose, Principal
