Situated at the foot of the British Properties, near the Upper Levels Highway and Taylor Way in West Vancouver is Westcot Elementary School. Westcot Elementary is a high achieving, socially responsible learning community where our teachers and families work together to create a holistic, child centered learning environment. The facilitation of student leadership is a thread that is woven into all of our academic programming, beginning with our young primary learners and continuing into the intermediate years. Active participation, combined with service learning and leadership opportunities are the tenets of student citizenship and community building at Westcot Elementary.
School Growth Plan
The Westcot School Growth Plan has been created in collaboration with staff and parents to help Westcot Elementary identify areas of focus for the 2015-2016 school year.
This year Westcot’s growth plan is focusing on the promotion of healthy living leading to whole body wellness and regulated students who are alert, calm and ready to learn.
