Applying To Westside
We are delighted you are exploring Westside School as a place for your child to begin or continue their educational journey. We know choosing the right school for your child is one of the most significant things you'll do for them. In the process, some big questions come up. Where will my child be happy? What exactly determines a good fit? How do we apply? What comes next?
We're here to help you with the process and to help you understand if Westside School is the right place for you.
We invite you to explore our campus via our unique virtual tour. You’ll see the school as it is now and as it will be, meet our students and faculty, and learn about what makes us West Seattle's premier option.
Please contact our Director of Admission, Ted Holmes, for more information.
