Students Who Are Seen and Known

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.

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

The middle school teaching teams implement 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.

"My two daughters went through the Westside program, one is a sophomore and the other is in 8th grade. Their academic experience has prepared them for college prep schools, but more important, both girls have become confident, engaged and happy young women. They are comfortable in their own skin." -Westside Parent
