Over 30 Years of Joyful Learning in West Seattle

"I love the community feel of the school and the open door policy with teachers and administrators. I feel the teachers really know and understand my children -- both their strengths and weaknesses -- and therefore know how to motivate, encourage, and challenge them."                

                     -- Westside School Parent

At Westside School, classrooms buzz with energy and curiosity. Teachers cultivate learning environments celebrating students’ individuality and creativity.

Our curriculum simultaneously supports and challenges students. It encourages each student – from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade to become confident contributors, critical thinkers, and empathetic friends.

In our multi-age community, students learn to take care of each other, formally and informally through our Reading Buddies program and other community activites. Older students mentor younger students, who in turn have positive role models to look up to.
