Welcome to STRIVE Prep – Westwood
Home of the Panthers

STRIVE Prep - Westwood Families!

We are so excited for the return of our 7th and 8th graders and the welcome of our newest Panthers - the college class of 2029! This year we will be adding a human development course called Positive Action to our curriculum that we hope will create team-building opportunities and supportive structures for our scholars! We are also making a change to our academic after-school interventions to focus more on tutoring to close academic gaps. Please join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, Sept. 6th to learn more about these programs! Flag football and volleyball are our fall sports - please encourage your scholars to try out if they are interested!

Thank you for partnering with us to provide your child with the best middle school experience possible! We know this year is going to be fantastic!
