I just graduated the sixth grade and I'd have to say I loved it. I went to Westside for 5 years and never really had any issues. 99% of the teachers care very much for the students and help them all they can. Great gifted Program. Definetly a Fantastic school!!!!!

This school is truly amazing. I brought my daughter here after attending a charter school in the area and there is absolutely no comparison!

She made it pretty clear that she did not want to spend an extra minute on us. The principal on the other hand is very helpful and ...  Read more

I believe that Westside is a ok school if your child doese not have any special needs. I have a nephew who has attended Westside for 2 years, and my sister has had to fight every step of the way to get him the help he needs.They are very rude and don't follow through with the IEP. They had moved here ...  Read more
