Welcome to Westside, virtually!

Westside School is an independent school for preschool-8th grade students, located in the Arbor Heights neighborhood of West Seattle. At Westside, you'll find students who are seen, known, and understood by their teachers. Students have access to a variety of specialists (including Spanish and Mandarin classes starting in preschool) and social-emotional learning is a vital part of each students' classroom experience.

In our 39 years, we've adapted to meet our students' needs whatever comes our way. The 2020-2021 school year is no different. We began the year with a hybrid-model for learning with students rotating days on campus, and as of November 30, moved to fully remote through at least early January. Keeping our community as safe and as healthy as possible has been driving all of our decision-making this year.

We are hopeful we'll be on campus as soon as it is safe again, but in the meantime, we invite you to join us on a virtual tour to learn more about our program, or to join us at an upcoming information night!
