School Improvement Plan
West Potomac is committed to graduating students prepared to use their talents, skills, and unique experiences to pursue a meaningful life in a global society. To make this commitment come to life, we recognize that we will have to remove barriers in the classroom that keep some students from fully participating in learning. Changing our instructional practices will help us to address and remove some of the barriers to learning that students sometimes encounter.
