Westview Elementary School is a community of learners that embraces inclusionary practices and differentiated instruction. There are approximately 391 students in grades Pre-K thru 4 who are actively engaged in the learning process.

This year we are focusing on Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS). Westview students and staff are focusing on making school an environment where all students are successful academically and behaviorally. We will focus on catching students doing the right thing and teaching alternatives, therefore…

Westview will be Targeting GREEN Behavior.
