A small town feeling school in a large city. No other district like it with so much community support and families wanting into this high performing district. So much history, so much success, so much community!

Westside Community Schools is an amazing school district with a wonderful tradition and a bright future. I love their commitment to each and every student. They are just the right size for personalized learning. This is a GREAT place for kids!
Westside High School is a pretty unique school in my area since we have a modular schedule that allows open periods to be spent with teachers to help us get caught up with whatever classwork we are missing, or to just get help in general. The teachers here are very charming and attentive and they care about their students in an active way that shows that they do legitimately care about their students. The classes they offer here are unique too. There are theater classes that challenge your production skills, english classes that can help improve your writing, and elective arts that show the world of cooking, fashion, and other art forms.
