Our Points of Pride

  • Westside is a community school that offers support and resources to our students and families including a robust afterschool program, onsite food pantry and clothing closet, access to clubs and activities.
  • We have two large murals at our school that were co-created by students and artists in residence.
  • We were named in the Top 10 of World Best Schools for our work in the area of Community Collaboration
  • We focus on Identity Development and the celebration of the gifts and talents that each one of our Scholars brings with them everyday. This is done through student in the classroom which includes culminating art projects and celebrations
  • We believe in Restorative Practices and are committed to bringing those practices into every aspect of our school community. This includes the practice of Community Building Circles in classrooms as well as Restorative Circles.
  • Our staff truly loves and cares for each and every Scholar at Westside and work to create conditions where every child feels seen, heard and valued as a vital member of our community.
  • We enjoy celebrating our community through neighborhood BBQs, regular school events, all school surprise celebrations, All School Morning Meeting once a month and all school field trips.
