Anxiety and depression cheat otherwise bright and motivated students out of the opportunity to achieve academic excellence. The Westport Day School levels the playing field, giving these students access to education of the highest quality. We offer an unparalleled academic environment for anxious and depressed students. Our small class setting, educational philosophy, and state-of-the-art support from teachers and clinicians create an environment in which students with internalizing difficulties can reach their full potential.
The Westport Day School is a private, coeducational, therapeutic day school that serves students in middle and high school. We cultivate mindfulness, ethical sense, and wisdom in our students. Students receive therapeutic support from a licensed clinician on a weekly basis. At WDS, we foster a strong student-teacher relationship and regard it as the primary vehicle for student development.
Our program is academically rich as well as therapeutic and we address academic needs ranging from remediation to giftedness. It is not uncommon for our students to have uneven cognitive or achievement profiles and we are prepared to support student with disabilities in reading, math, and/or writing.
