It is our belief at Westside Elementary that we create a safe and positive learning environment that is respectful, trusting, nurturing, and fair. Our school utilizes rigorous instructional practices that engage students in the learning process.
We promote individuality, use of technology, and prepare students towards becoming life-long thinkers, learners, and educated adults who choose a healthy lifestyle. Westside Elementary parents and staff members understand that our children must be the change we wish to see in tomorrow's world.
