I would recommend West Side Christian to any parent. The school genuinely cares about the children and the staff go above and beyond - taking a personal approach all while being passionate about Christian Education.

Our children have flourished as a result of their educational journey nurtured through the Christ-centered education at West Side Christian School. The academic environment fosters their growth in a place where they can be imaginative, curious, experiment, and part of a community. West Side Christian provides diverse learning experiences that help develop the whole child - physical development (playground time, gym time), music lessons, art, school garden, nature preserve (i.e., ladybugs, caterpillars, leaves, frogs, etc.), band or orchestra, and so much more. We praise God that He directed our steps to this school. It truly has been a best kept secret in the city of Grand Rapids!!

West Side Christian is a wonderful place to have your child educated. They will be nurtured, challenged, loved and cared for by a dedicated and hard-working staff. Their is a strong focus on subjects besides the basics with music and art being most notable. WSCS also has Odyssey of the Mind, Girls on the Run, multiple sports, orchestra/band, and plays. West Side is also inclusive. Your child will be given the best whatever their abilities, background or physical/mental disabilties.
