Our School

Westgate School was built in 1960 with additions in 1964 and 1967. The school was named after the community in which it was built. Westgate School began offering programs in French Immersion in 1977. In September 2005, it became a single track, French Immersion School due to decreased enrolment in the regular program. The following year, a Spanish Bilingual Program was opened and Westgate became an official International Spanish Academy. Due to increased enrolment in both programs, the Spanish Bilingual Program relocated to Glenmeadows School in September 2018.  Today, Westgate School has students from kindergarten to grade 6 in French Immersion.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
