A supportive learning community that educates and empowers students and staff to achieve their highest potential as citizens.
Westmoor Elementary is the largest and only single level elementary school in Scottsbluff. The building opened in the fall of 1960 and added a six room pod addition in 1968. Six more classrooms and air conditioning were added in August 2009. In 2011, Westmoor celebrated 50 years of successful education with a community open house.
With and enrollment of just over 400 students, Westmoor has three to four sections of each grade with classroom sizes ranging from 16-23 students. The building is fortunate to house the districts Multi-Categorical Special Education Program, which consists of three additional classrooms. The inclusion of special needs students develops a caring and accepting attitude of people's differences in all students.
Westmoor students utilize the Accelerated Reader and the Accelerated Math programs. These two programs are supplementary to the regular reading and math curriculum and provide excellent differentiation for all students. Students that master math objectives and reading levels earn certificates and awards. As a result of excellent curriculum and teaching, Westmoor students have met the Adequate Yearly Progress goals as set by federal legislation, No Child Left Behind, and boast one of the highest percentages of high ability learners in the district.
In spite of the size of the building, it truly functions as a family. You can tell when you walk in the front door, it is a child-centered environment.
Greetings to all and welcome to the Westmoor Elementary School website! We hope that you will find our site easy to navigate and full of useful information.
Our commitment at Westmoor is to provide a safe, positive, and nurturing learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and empathetic individuals.
This will be my first year as principal at Westmoor Elementary School. I spent the last 13 years at Bluffs Middle School. Six of those years were as a 6th-grade teacher, four as an assistant principal, and the last three as head principal. Prior to my time at BMS I taught 5th grade at Westmoor for 10 years. Those 10 years were amazing years, and when the opportunity came about to return to the school I hold in such high regard, I jumped at the chance!
Much due to retired principal Charlotte Browning, I am already finding a caring, dedicated, and fun-loving staff in place. I would like to continue the standard of high expectations, the relationship with the supportive community, and the tradition of the family atmosphere. I am honored to work alongside so many caring and skilled individuals who are committed to providing a well-rounded learning experience for every child, all of the time.
Westmoor is proud to be a community school in the best sense of the phrase. We currently serve approximately 450 students in grades Kindergarten through 5th.
