Yes! The scheduling at Westside is different compared to most high schools in the area. Modular scheduling makes classes/learning easier. Due to our open mods we can go in for help with a teacher at any time. Large groups help us prepare for college. Everyone can be friendly and you could definitely find a group of friends at Westside.

Westside High School offers great education and opportunities for all of its students. Being one of the best high schools in the area, Westside is constantly pushing its students to be the best they can, while leaving them in a nurturing environment. Westside also focuses heavily on eating healthy. If I had the choice, I would definitely recommend Westside High School to prospective students.

I would absolutely recommend attending Westside High School. It offers many teachers that are willing to help you if you are struggling. Every time I miss school for some reason I am able to go to my teachers and they are willing to help me get what I need and understand what I missed. There is a good ratio of teachers to students so you will always be able to find someone who can help. Westside also has a different scheduling than most schools. We have modular scheduling as opposed to blocking or other types of scheduling. Modular scheduling is very hard to explain but it's very similar to what colleges use. There are fourteen mods in one day and you will not have classes for all of them. You will have things called open mods. At Westside you do not get study hall or lunch. If your schedule is open say mod 4/5 you will eat then. And then maybe you are open 10/11 so you will have a study hall in something called an IMC. IMC's are small study areas throughout the school where teachers for a certain subject have their desks. For example, teachers in the Social Studies/Business IMC will all be social studies teachers whereas in the Math IMC you will only find Math teachers. This is a very easy and effective way to find and meet with your teachers when you are open. These reasons are only a few of the reasons I would recommend attending Westside. Overall it's an amazing school and helps prepare students for their future.
