New West is excited to offer our After School Enrichment Program taught by our very own staff! Our New West Staff will provide classes that will stimulate our students, mentally and physically. Different enrichment classes are offered everyday. Please take a look at the calendar below each month to see what enrichment classes and events are upcoming. At the end of every semester, students will go on a fun filled field trip to local attractions.
