History of JB Westlake

After years of careful planning, searching, and praying, we found a perfect building and location for the third JB School on Crocker Road in Westlake. In 2020, we moved into our new building and began to turn it into a highly customized space for our future students.

In August of 2021, JB Westlake opened its doors to grades K-4 and will be opening grades K-8 in the fall of 2022. Every detail of the school is designed to create a safe and comfortable environment for kids with learning differences.

JB Westlake offers highly personalized education to students in primary, elementary, and middle school.

It takes a village to bring a JB school to a new community, and we are grateful to the Westlake community for recognizing the need for a school like ours. Generous donors, the JB Board and administration, devoted community partners, and volunteers worked tirelessly to prepare our beautiful, newly-renovated space for use.

This next year brings many improvements to JB Westlake including, lower-level interior renovations, continued expansion of our classrooms, and many more. We will continue to make improvements to the JB Westlake building to prepare for when we open our doors to all grades. As we continue to grow, JB Westlake is excited to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of its students.

open-quote They have all the resources necessary, specialized to the individual learning of each child, and the heart that goes with it. I don't think we would have stayed in Ohio if it wasn't for JB! close-quote

open-quote Julie Billiart Schools gave us hope after our daughter was diagnosed with a learning disability. At JB, she thrived in the small classes, received necessary therapies, and developed the self-confidence to ask for help when she needed it. close-quote
