Mission Statement

 At Westside we believe in doing school activities together. Besides all school PE, we have all school Friday morning sing, and on Friday afternoons we all participate in a Friday activity. The sense of family and community is unmatched. If you take a walk around the campus, one of the things that will stand out the most is how recognizable the relationships are, the relationships between staff and students, staff and families, and staff with each other. For Westside staff and families, our school is their home away from home.
