      Four comments about WESM Health/Sports Medicine

      I have sent my 3 children to Westchester - two graduates and one current student - and they have been given access to all they needed to succeed. The problem is that there is a tremendous achievement gap between different groups at the school, and the majority of student are not getting what they need. With a relatively small student population, the school does not have the resources ($) to provide students with the programs to help them achieve. As such, the entire school community needs to identify what is currently working for students and do more of it, and to identify what's NOT working and be brave enough to acknowledge it and make changes. Only then will ALL Westchester students have the opportunity to travel the pathway to success. The time is NOW!
