Learning Management System Details
WEIA is pleased to partner with Schoology for its Learning Management System (LMS).
Schoology is a virtual learning environment that allows for the delivery of online courses in a way that is user-friendly and secure for teachers, learners and administrators. Schoology customizes the LMS for each school’s unique needs and provides extensive and immediate technical support as needed.
Some of the specialized features include the capability to provide: organized lesson and unit plans, descriptions of assessment and evaluation items, assignment submission boxes, discussion boards, real-time video-conferencing and live chat rooms.
At WEIA, teachers – in consultation with the Principal – design and develop the academic content for each course so that it matches and meets the expectations set out in the curriculum documents for the Ontario Ministry of Education.
Once registered for an online course, students will receive their individual, password-protected log-in information for Schoology. As part of the first lesson, students learn from the teacher how to navigate through the various components of Schoology. As well, students are made aware of the expectations for work completion and active participation in the course.
Each teacher is highly knowledgeable in the curriculum area and is skilled at delivering online courses. In this way WEIA creates a virtual and friendly learning community that supports student engagement and attainment of the academic expectations of the course.

At the beginning of my journey here at Westfield, I was filled with doubt and a lot of nerves. However, the enthusiastic teachers and staff, along with the energetic students helped me to adapt to this community quickly. I enjoy and appreciate my time here. Westfield is my home away from home.
Westfield Secondary is a great school to me. The students are friendly, and I can make friends with people from different countries. The teachers here are great, they are always here to listen and help us with any problems we come across. I would recommend Westfield Secondary to anyone interested in coming here!
I feel like the staff and teachers are friends. They are caring towards my study and life. They have helped build my confidence day by day, and improve my English which helps me adjust to local life. My parents are so proud of me and its all thanks to Westfield!
I came to Canada being excited but also feeling very nervous. I did not have any confidence in speaking English, but the teaching at Westfield help me to rebuild my confidence and has motivated me to improve my learning.
It’s been a few months now that I have been studying at Westfield. From the first day I came, Westfield made me feel very welcomed. Everyone is very friendly and communicative. The teachers are extremely caring and kind, and they really want us to succeed. Westfield has made me feel at home!
