PRINCIPAL DAVID MOODY WINS HERB KOHL LEADERSHIP AWARD
Congratulations to one of our own!
Westfield Area HS/MS Principal, David Moody, has been selected as a 2016 Herb Kohl Leadership Award recipient. This award was based on setting high standards for instruction, achievement and character, and creating a climate to best serve students, families, staff, and community as a building leader.
We continue to be a progressive school district that takes great pride in providing high quality education for our students within a caring and supportive learning environment. Student achievement is of paramount importance and our teaching staff is working exceedingly hard every day to provide the best educational program for our students. Each school in the district has a school improvement team that focuses on and develops activities to achieve the following DISTRICT GOALS...
Preparing Students as 21st Century Learners
Safe and Supportive Schools
Westfield remains large enough to offer a wide variety of student learning experiences and co-curricular activities, yet small enough to provide students the opportunity to participate in as many activities as they choose to pursue. We have a low student-staff ratio that allows small group and individual attention on a regular basis. We are a leader in technology that includes our state-of-the-art telepresence lab (i.e. foreign language distance learning in elementary school) and Promethean interactive tables (activity tables). Furthermore, Westfield Area High School was recently ranked the 20th best high school in the state of Wisconsin by US News and World Report.
Parent involvement and community support are major assets of the district and contribute to the success of our students. Organizations such as the Booster Club, Post Prom Committee, Families in Education (FIE), Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), Touchdown Club, and Pioneer Youth Club (PYC) provide volunteer time and financial support for various academic and co-curricular programs in the district.
Highly qualified, caring, and compassionate staff members that establish high expectations best describe the culture of our district and make Westfield a great place to learn and work. We look forward to an exciting year.
