Westmark School is a private school in Encino, California, teaching 2nd through 12th grade. The school serves children with language-based learning differences including attention-deficit disorder and dyslexia among other learning disorders.[2]

The school is the first in the Los Angeles area to provide iPads to all students. School administrators and teachers consider the high costs worth it for what it adds to the education program.[2] Westmark has a television station education program in which its 5th grade students write the material and produce the program.[3] The school library has materials of various types to cater to the students with various learning needs.[4]
