I graduate Westside in the year of 2014 my graduating class was the last class to graduate under the great principle, Mr. Adair. During my time at Westside, my experiences were overall very good. There were very few things that needed improvement on for instants; the Westside school building is very outdated like many schools in America and technological wise I felt that we lacked in some areas. Those two things are what made me give the school a four instead of a five-star rating. Overall Westside is an excellent place to spend your high school experience. Go Westside Rams!

I played three sports when i attended westside high, including football, basketball, and soccer. My time at westside was wonderful, the teachers were excellent in the fact that they would help you to understand any time that you needed them to. The staff at the school was also very involved with getting myself to college. The food was really the only bad thing about westside. You could fix the food problem though because usually a representative from chick filla was always there selling food at lunch time. Overall my experience at the school was one that i would glad do over one more time.
Westside is honestly such a welcoming school. Although it isn't super fancy, the atmosphere and family-like student body provides students with a fun learning environment. Teachers work hard and still have fun with their students, and overall help kids learn to love learning! Westside is full of pride for our sports teams and academic groups, and we just love our school!
