As a parent who is an involved parent, I am aware of the changes that have been made to move Westside in a positive direction. Where once parents felt ignored at best, they are now welcome.

Good school with faculty and staff taking a 0 tolerance approach to disruptive behaviors while continuing to nuture the students. As an involved parent I have been pleased with the system.
