• Community and District Profiles

    The Westwood Regional School District serves the Borough of Westwood (population 10,400) and the Township of Washington (population 9,800).  These two communities are located approximately fifteen miles northwest of midtown Manhattan.  Such proximity provides incomparable educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities, while preserving the charm and lifestyle of a small suburban town.  The majority of parents are engaged in professional and managerial occupations with incomes in the middle and upper-middle brackets.

    The district serves approximately 2,800 students and includes four K-5 neighborhood elementary schools, a 6-7 middle school, and an 8-12 Jr./Sr. High School.  As a result of an average class size of 22 in the district, teachers are better able to give each students the personal attention he or she deserves.  Through the years the community has demonstrated support for the school district and its commitment to providing the widest possible range of educational experiences.
