Hanna reflects on ten years at Westside School

Posted on Updated 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 education at Westside School when I was three years old. At that time, Westside was still sharing space with Explorer West, and the pre-school was in a portable. My teacher was the sweet, caring, Nancy. I remember everything clearly. My first day at Westside School surpassed my expectations. I was so nervous, but as soon as I walked in, I knew I did not have to be scared. The environment was filled with laughter, and I was so excited to finally have a cubby. There were so many cool toys! I have been at Westside for over ten years. It’s all I have ever known, and I am still not quite ready to leave. I will always smile when I think of my experiences here.
