About West Hills Academy

Who are we?

We are a Long Island private school serving students grades K-12. Our program is created for the unique learners of the world, who may have been underserved by the restrictions of public education. Inspired by the Montessori philosophy of teaching, our classrooms capitalize on a child’s natural curiosity and academic strengths to guide their learning process.

Who are our students?

  • Academic Level
    • Our students are children who possess an average to above average IQ, but have struggled due to certain academic, social, emotional, and/or physical limitations.
  • Common Factors
    • Common among students entering our school are social and emotional setbacks (i.e. bullying), language-learning disabilities, ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorders, depression, mood disorders, and high functioning autism.
