Westtown School

Changemaker School

Guided by the essential Quaker calling to seek out and honor that of God in each of us, Westtown School challenges its students to realize their individual gifts while learning and living together in a diverse community. Changemaking is engrained throughout their curriculum. For example: 8th graders read “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” and as a result decided to create a wind generator on their school farm; student council works in a way that any student who wants to lead can self-nominate and lead without going through an election; and parents host upper school students for internships while others co-teach classes such as Business Ethics.
