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.

I absolutely love Westside Community Schools. If you put in the work to exceed, you will. The modular scheduling has helped me be more successful in school. The administration needs to punish students in the way that they need to have more responsibility for their actions instead of letting it slide. The teachers are amazing and truly care about your experience and teach you valuable lesson in and out of the classrooms. I really am going to miss Westside as I pursue a higher education.
Many students boast about how wonderful their high school is, but I can truly say that being part of Westside Community Schools has not only given me a superior education, but it has also prepared me for a successful future. Since kindergarten I have felt like an important part of the Westside Community and because of their of the excellent academic curriculum I know I have tools I need in order to thrive at college and beyond. Westside has been an important part of my family life as well, considering that my mother and many aunts and uncles are alum of Westside and if I return to my hometown after college and settle there, I will not hesitate sending my own children through Westside Schools.
