I'm a senior finishing up my second semester at Westside and it has been such an awesome experience! There are tons of opportunities to get engaged in the community and I have been able to be involved with student government, worship band, soccer, track, choir and so much more during my four years here. The teachers really get to know you and many have become mentors to me. Definitely would recommend :)

Westside Christian High School has been a profound blessing to our family! Our daughter graduated from Westside in 2017 and our son is currently a junior there, so we have been in the Westside community for over six years. During this time, we have seen our children thrive in a loving environment filled with gifted teachers and administrators who have truly found their calling. Westside is very strong academically, offers abundant opportunities in athletics and their music program is award-winning! But our favorite thing about Westside is their commitment to putting their mission statement into action. If your child attends this school they will definitely be prayed for, guided with love and grace and ultimately shown the love of Christ.

I`m going to be a junior at WCHS in the fall and I cannot express how incredible this school and community is. I have grown so much by going here, and have made friendships that will last a lifetime. My teachers are not only mentors but friends and they are genuinely interested in me and my studies. The staff is kind and supportive and overall the community is outstanding. The sports programs are amazing and very competitive which I love. I really recommend this school!!
