Westwood Elementary’s Mascot
Westwood is home of the Tigers! The official school mascot is Weston the Tiger, whose name was voted on by the students during the 2017-2018 school year!
Westwood’s vision is to inspire each individual to achieve limitless potential in a world yet to be imagined.
Westwood Elementary’s mission is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment. Westwood fosters rigorous learning experiences by a compassionate and engaging staff that aims to help all students become life-long learners and productive members of the community.
There was originally only one elementary school in Fairview, TN, and that was Fairview Elementary School. Fairview Elementary School was opened in August 1962, with an enrollment of 533 students in grades 1-8. The school was built to fill an existing need for a comprehensive consolidated elementary school in the western part of Williamson County. Fairview’s opening united Triangle, New Hope and Fairview Schools. In 1971, grades 7 and 8 were moved to the high school, and in 1972, a kindergarten program was implemented. Due to continued growth in the area, the 6th grade was transferred to Fairview Middle School in 1982, and the 5th grade in 1988. In August 2000, Westwood Elementary School was commissioned due to the ever-increasing enrollment. Fairview Elementary and Westwood Elementary shared the same building until Westwood’s school building was ready for occupation, which came in January of 2001.
About the Community of Fairview
Quaint, quiet, and convenient with a small town atmosphere are just a few ways to describe Fairview, TN, the home of Westwood Elementary School. Located in the vicinity of Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, Dickson, and Spring Hill, Fairview residents are a short commute to almost anywhere in Middle Tennessee. Fairview is proud to claim Bowie Nature Park as their own, which is the largest city operated park in the United States. The city and community have been dedicated to monitoring the communities’ growth in an effort to retain the small town atmosphere, but as Williamson County grows, so does Fairview.
