At Westlake Academy we value reading for pleasure throughout primary and secondary education. Research shows that reading for enjoyment is correlated with increased word exposure, improved academic performance, improved standardized test performance, college readiness, and the opportunity to build empathy.
We have many resources available to our students both in Primary and Secondary. Please sign in top the Students' Portal to access the Digital Resources.
