Description About Westmount Secondary School

Welcome to Westmount Secondary School

Westmount Secondary School is a secondary school in Hamilton Ontario, Canada. It is a member of the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.

t is currently the only secondary school in Hamilton to make it into the Fraser Institute's top 100 High Schools in Ontario, ranked at #84 out of 718. In Hamilton City, Westmount Secondary School is well known for its academic excellence and sports academy program.

Principal: Geeta Malhotra

Since 1990, Westmount has operated under a self-directed learning program; more commonly referred to as a self-paced environment. This allows students to be able to complete work at their own pace, by enabling them with the abilities to carry over unfinished courses into the next semester, or fast-track them and finish earlier. It is one of the only schools with this program in Canada, and often plays host to international visitors wishing to view the teaching process in person. It is also home to a "sports academy", in which students looking to gain a career in professional sports may hone their skills. Because of the self-pacing program, these students are able to be absent from school, without falling behind in their classes. Westmount is also home to a newly instituted Advanced Placement program, and one of Hamilton's best-gifted programs. It also has a growing Media Arts and Animation program and owns a Macintosh computer lab with a separate Macintosh network. Approximately 35% of computers used at Westmount are Apple Mac computers.

Note:

High school is an important time of life that sets the stage for the rest of a child’s academic and professional future. Simply sending your son or daughter to the high school down the street may work in some instances, but definitely not in all. Once you have narrowed your choices to a handful of schools, plan visits to see the school environment in action. Time recommends that parents visit the school on a regular class day, where they can observe teachers interacting with students in the classroom and students interacting with one another between class periods. Look for engagement between teachers and students, positive, orderly behavior in the classroom and hallways and willingness from teachers and administrators to talk to parents.
