Westmount Secondary School is secondary school in Hamilton Ontario, Canada. It is a member of the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board. The school opened, and has a enrolment of 1520 students. The school is a member of the Canadian Coalition of Self-Directed Learning. Westmount also offers gifted classes, special education classes, as well as an ESL program.
Westmount has operated under a self-directed learning program; more commonly referred to as a self-paced environment. This allows students to be able to complete work at their own pace, by enabling them with the abilities to carry over unfinished courses into the next semester, or fast-track them and finish earlier.
It is one of the only schools with this program in Canada, and often plays host to international visitors wishing to view the teaching process in person. It is also home to a “sports academy”, in which students looking to gain a career in professional sports may hone their skills. Because of the self pacing program, these students are able to be absent from school, without falling behind in their classes.
Westmount is also home to a newly instituted Advanced Placement program, and one of Hamilton’s best gifted programs. It also has a growing Media Arts and Animation program, and owns a Macintosh computer lab with a separate Macintosh network. Approximately 35% of computers used at Westmount are Apple Mac computers. Westmount is a multicultural school. The student population consists of a variety of religions and ethnicities. The school is also home to both Christian and Muslim prayer societies, each meeting occasionally to carry out religious tasks.
