Our Vision

We are an independent, forward-thinking girls' school committed to educating intellectually adventurous thinkers, and courageous, compassionate leaders. We strive to prepare young women to live lives of meaning, contribution, and impact.


The fundamental purpose of Westridge School is to develop in girls their intellectual and creative powers and their unique qualities as individuals. Essential to the school's purpose is the commitment to be a community that reflects and values diversity, respects individual differences, and respond to a changing dynamic world.

An intellectually engaging and challenging curriculum prepares students to continue their education in college and beyond as discerning, motivated learners who are committed to excellence and goodness in everything they do. The program offers balance among humanities, mathematics and sciences, visual and performing arts, technology and athletics. A Westridge education offers both a path to self-discovery and personal fulfillment and an awareness of the essential interdependence of all peoples, places, and cultures.

Westridge strives to develop young women whose joy in learning, personal integrity, courage, compassion, and commitment to ethical action and social and environment responsibility, will lead them to meaningful lives as contributing citizens of the larger world.
