“When I’m in high school…I’ll look back on a school I’m proud of”

Posted on

In anticipation of our 35th Celebration, we’ve asked some of our eighth grade students to share their Westside Story. Westside School is what it is today because of 35 years of stories. We’d love to hear yours.


I began my journey at Westside School nine years ago, and I know it doesn’t matter how long you have been at a school; someone could have been at a school for one year, and that one year could have been the most amazing year of his or her life. To me, being in the same place for so long is something special. You get to know your classmates well, the teachers, and you get to experience a school that will grow along with you. Once I leave, I will know that I will be remembered throughout these halls. I will have left my mark, because Westside has shaped me into someone I can be proud to be. So when I visit next year, when I’m in high school, I can look back on an amazing school that I feel proud of.
