Thank you for your interest in Westside School! 

The admission season for the 2015-16 school year will begin in October. Starting in September you may call the main office, (206) 932-2511, to reserve space on one of our Lower School weekly tours, typically tours are for adults only.  The group tours start at 8:45am in generally lasts around 90 minutes.  In addition we will be hosting two all grade Open Houses in the fall.  The Open House offers an excellent opportunity for the children to visit the school with their parents.

Families interested in Middle School will have an opportunity to learn more about our program by attending a special event on Thursday, November 14th from 6-7:30pm. Students and families will experience Middle School at Westside through a variety of hands-on experiences during this fun and informative evening.  In addition, there will be a number of days set aside for students to "shadow" another student for the day. Ideally, the visiting student would spend the day on campus, arriving by 8:15am with pick up at 3:30pm. Parents may reserve a visit day by contacting our Director of Admission, David Bergler. Parent tours will occur during the day of their child's visit.
