Learning Management System Details
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.

I have earned the president position in the Students’ Council. I never thought I could actually become this leader who I dreamed to be. I have been through a lot of elections in my life, some I failed, some I just gave up. But this time, Westfield’s students and teachers trusted me and gave this chance, and I am very grateful. I had one gap year, totally lost; one year in a school that I did not feel I belonged in. Westfield brought my confidence back. I am proud to say, I have reached a high point in my life, with acceptances from Rotman Commerce, McGill’s Commerce, UTM’s Commerce with Scholarship.
I am very grateful to my teachers and staffs for my achievement. When I started my journey at Westfield, I was filled with nervousness and doubt. However, the enthusiasm of the teachers, staff, and students helped me quickly adapt to the community. Westfield not only galvanized my academic capabilities but also gave me love and care.
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!
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!
Hello everybody. I’m so lucky to study at Westfield Secondary School. I really enjoy Westfield because they’re very friendly and nice to me. I like them a lot. Westfield has a fun game room where I can play pool and table ping pong with my friends. After we finish class we have study hall. All our teachers help us to improve our skills in each subject. I am improving my English day by day being here better than I would have at home. I hope to see you here soon!
