Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be West Brook!

Academics

We are committed to the academic achievement of our students. Our curriculum addresses the needs of the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally. Our students enter high school well-prepared for success.

Courses of Study

All West Brook students in grades five through eight (5–8) will study the following subjects:

  • Language arts literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social studies
  • Physical education and health
  • Enrichment
  • World language (Spanish in grades 5–7 and choice of Spanish, German, or Italian in grade 8).

Exploratory Areas

In addition to the above courses, we require our students to study a cycle of the following “exploratory areas” for one marking period in grades 5–8:

  • Art
  • Music
  • Computer art
  • Computer literacy

Grades

Working together, we can ensure that every West Brook student succeeds. We'll schedule parent conferences in the fall, and you are welcome to contact your child's teacher anytime you have a concern.

We make every effort to report the individual progress of each student fairly and accurately. We issue report cards four times a year in November, February, April, and June. We also send progress reports home to parents mid-marking period.

Music Program

Our Wildcats have the unique opportunity to be a member of the West Brook orchestra, chorus, and band, as well as string ensemble, flute ensemble, and jazz band. By choosing one or more of these performing groups, students gain exposure to the sounds of the string, woodwind, brass, or percussion instruments.

We’re honored to give instrumental music lessons at all grade levels once a week on a rotating schedule for our students enrolled in music programs.
