Middle School Approach

Self-Confidence Centers the Westside School Middle School Program

Our supportive environment nurtures self-esteem while challenging students to understand themselves as individuals with distinct learning styles.

We treat our classrooms as a community, where students commit to their own learning and support their fellow scholars. Learning occurs both in and beyond the walls of the classroom, in our neighborhood, our city, and on the outdoor education overnight expeditions our students take.

The Middle School teaching team implements an integrated, project based curriculum across math, science, humanities, and world languages that engages students' imaginations, matures their critical thinking skills and encourages participation in the global community.

Sharing the campus with the Westside School Lower School students provides authentic leadership opportunities for the Middle School students.

Our students will leave their experience at Westside School prepared for the high school of their choice, and ready to take on the challenges and adventures their future holds.
