Student Support Services

The mission of the Westwood Middle School Dean Program is to facilitate a comprehensive, developmental program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social growth of all students.

School deans will do this through proactive school wide programs and targeted interventions.

School deans may meet with a student at any time unless otherwise indicated by families.
