FSA Training Tests
FSA (Florida Standards Assessment) is the state’s new assessment tool. Students have access to online practice training tests through the FSA website and are encouraged to take these online tests to familiarize themselves with the system. Here at Westpine all students will experience this new test system prior to the actual test, but students are encouraged to practice at home as much as possible. They ARE NOT meant to teach your student any type of curriculum, only how to navigate and use the tools available to them during testing. The website is: www.fsassessments.org. Before signing on please read the Florida Standards Assessments Quick Guide to the Training Test.

Move Over Famous Artists! Westpine's Artists are taking over the spotlight! We have teamed up with Artsonia, the world's largest online kid's art museum to display our students' artwork. Our students join thousands of students from over 130 countries whose artwork is showcased on Artsonia. Artsonia provides online features such as fan clubs and personal guestbooks. Family members can purchase keepsakes, like posters, t-shirts, etc., imprinted with the child's artwork, and Artsonia gives 20% of the purchases back to Westpine.To view our exhibit click here!
