In 2010, Westside was nominated to be a California Distinguished School. At the time of this edit, 3-25-10, the results are pending. As of 2010-2011, Westside's teachers and staff will continue exploring new programs such as full implementation of PLC's and other strategies including scaffolding and specialist/single subject intervention. Serving the community has the most value to the staff as it moves into the future.
Westside's demographics include a high-percentage of socio-economically disadvantaged students. One commitment of the school is to show through measurable academic achievement that economics should never limit student success in life.
