A message from our principal, Vera Berezowsky
Welcome to the West Patent Elementary School web page. Our site allows the Bedford community a means to keep up to date with the programs and initiatives at West Patent School as well as a link to the Bedford Central School District website. Our web page serves as a medium for communicating and learning more about our school and upcoming events.
The West Patent Elementary School is a unique learning community where children grow academically, socially and physically. The school provides a strong academic focus in a nurturing environment. It offers a personalized approach to introducing and developing excellent literacy skills. Our mathematics program encourages independent thinking and uses a constructivist approach to understanding mathematical concepts which are grounded in real world applications. Inquiry and research are the hallmarks of learning about the world around us through social studies and science. Rounding out the curriculum is the appreciation of the visual and performing arts as well as the guided awareness of keeping a healthy and fit body.
We invite you to keep yourselves informed by visiting the website frequently to learn about curriculum initiatives, school events and other special "happenings" at West Patent Elementary School.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to the WPES website. We are proud of the fine work that takes place here with our students and faculty. We hope that you agree!
