Westside School is accredited by the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools (PNAIS.)
Why is accreditation by the PNAIS important?
PNAIS schools engage in a continuous process of research, reflection and on-going improvement that enables them to stay relevant to their missions and to the students and families they serve. Schools demonstrate this commitment by working continuously to improve their educational programs, actively participating in professional development opportunities and pursuing and maintaining accreditation by PNAIS.
Westside holds itself accountable by participating in the Association's rigorous accreditation process, ensuring that we maintain a high quality educational program through a commitment to ongoing improvement.
Westside is also approved by the Washington State Board of Education, having met the State Standards Certificate of Compliance for private schools.
