    We are home to the area's only elementary band program, a unique opportunity for upper grade students interested in flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, or percussion instruments. In 2018, Westmont became the first elementary school in the area to offer this program for fourth and fifth grade students. Our staff worked collaboratively with the Orange County Department of Education to pursue a funding opportunity from Buchanan Street Partners, who generously provided Westmont with a $50,000 Buchanan Music Matters grant.
