About Westmount Park
Westmount Park is a multicultural, multi-ethnic school that celebrates its diversity. While the majority of our children were born in Quebec and English is their mother tongue, our total population includes children born in over 25 different countries.
Westmount Park values the individual child’s right to develop in an educational environment that is free from fear and prejudice. This is achieved in a climate of respect, cooperation and commitment by providing a safe and effective learning atmosphere in which students can reach their full potential.
Our school is committed to offering a program of quality education that focuses on the community’s diverse needs. This celebration of cultural diversity of the student population is an important ingredient of our program, both in the academic areas as well as in the cultural aspects of the curriculum. We value the individual child’s right to develop in an educational environment that is free from fear and prejudice.
Our goal is to create an environment whereby all children are given the tools, support and life-skills needed in order to reach their full potential. We aim to foster a spirit of harmony with the help of teachers, support staff, parents and community resources and thereby supplying all the necessary resources for the children to become life-long learners.

In 1961, the building opened as an elementary school. In the 70’s and 80’s the school first welcomed students from Little Burgundy and Pointe St.Charles and expanded to its present size.
In 1998, it became part of the English Montreal School Board.
