About

Westside Academy I & II is a high-achieving school split between two campuses. K3 to Grade 3 students are at 1945 N. 31st Street; the 4th to 8th grade students are nearby at 1940 N. 36th Street. Westside emphasizes learning to solve complex problems using higher-order thinking skills. Both sites offer a technology education lab. Our students connect with community mentors and benefit from an extensive Community Learning Center (CLC) providing free after-school programs. The CLC offers intramural sports, homework help, outbound learning opportunities and a specialized reading enhancement program. We require uniforms. We are a peaceful school, embracing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to reinforce positive behaviors.
