Points of Pride: A Changemaker School -Westtown was selected to be a Changemaker School by the famous Ashoka Organization. Westtown is one of only seven pre-K through 12 schools (and the only boarding school and the only Quaker school) in the Changemaker School network in the United States.
Deep Dive Designations - The program honors Upper School students who are engaged in an intentional, organized and well-documented arc of action-based learning and focused scholarship. We offer Deep Dives in three areas: Social Entrepreneurship, Sustainability Leadership, and Global Leadership.
Action Based Education - We have a distinctive approach that prepares students differently than many other schools, which organize their curricula around high-stakes tests. At Westtown, we do something very different; we place action in the center of each student’s experience
