At Westside School, joyful learning is at the forefront of education. It is a place where imagination is invited, all students are seen and heard, and students learn through experience to achieve academic success. Supported by a caring community on our beautiful West Seattle campus, we teach each individual (preschool-8th grade) with the goal of fostering confident lifelong learners who are engaged and good citizens.

Stories of Adventure, Discovery, and Success, Written Daily

At Westside School, every child crafts their own story-one that unfolds naturally from their personality, experiences and gifts. Because here, we teach to the whole child-to all the things that make each student uniquely themselves- and support them to explore, stretch, and grow.
