Welcome from the Head of School


Welcome to Westside School! For more than three decades, Westside School - accredited by NWAIS as an Independent School - has been dedicated to helping children grow in a caring, creative and collaborative environment. With students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, our community is one full of spirit, individuality, curiosity and commitment to exploring the world. Our talented faculty and staff thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to engage with students, both through our thoughtful curriculum and beyond the classroom. We believe everyone is an artist, and the world is ours to explore. Through our World Language departments, Outdoor Education, Performing and Visual Arts classes, and digital citizenship education students learn to embrace their talents, challenge themselves, and collaborate with classmates and teachers in ways that will prepare them for a lifetime of learning.

I invite you to learn more about Westside School by looking through our website, reading the Insider Online, and following us on Facebook. We invite all prospective families and their children to join us for a tour of our campus, and look forward to talking more with you about what Westside School has to offer you and your family. Thank you for your interest in Westside School, I hope to meet you soon!
