Welcome to Westwood Intermediate and Middle School! We are a vibrant learning community serving Spring Lake Park Schools' students in grades 5-8.
While all under one roof, Westwood has separate programs and spaces for grades 5-6 intermediate students and grades 7-8 middle school students.
Each student at Westwood Intermediate and Middle School is known by name, strength, interest and need, leading to personalized student work and learning experiences.
Many portions of Westwood Intermediate and Middle School have been redesigned to provide flexible learning environments that allow teachers to meet the varied needs and interests of students.
Students coming to Westwood from Woodcrest Spanish Immersion can continue their learning through Westwood’s immersion programming.
Amazing things are happening every day at Westwood Intermediate and Middle School – learn more about our Westwood stories and voices.
STEM teacher, Westwood
Spring Lake Park is known for its innovation and student centered focus. I want to challenge my students to look outside the box and rely on their own skills, imagination and problem solving skills to create solutions to the problems set before them.

What makes me #SLPPantherProud is that I have the ability to do something that I love for a living, which is teaching and having the ability to impact students in our community to be the best they can be.
It’s not just about academics. When we look at our kids potential and how this district is preparing them, they provided all the tools they need for our students to be good citizens.
Math Teacher, Westwood
I personalize learning for my students by celebrating the mistakes they make. No matter what their learning style is, if they feel safe being wrong, they will always try their best.
I LOVE seeing my students engaged and excited about learning through their own creativity with Project Based Learning.
