Families interested in Middle School will have an opportunity to learn more about our program by attending a special event on Thursday, November 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Students and families will experience Middle School at Westside School 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 8:15 a.m. with pick up at 3:30 p.m. 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.
