Thank you for visiting Westside Elementary School's website. Our wonderful school was constructed in 1972. Throughout it's 40 year history, Westside has promoted a safe, professional, and effective learning environment for its students. Westside serves grades 1-3. The school consists of 36 self-contained classrooms. There are 10 first grade classrooms, 10 second grade classrooms, 11 third grade classrooms, and one self-contained Exceptional Student Education classroom. It is a predominantly open-concept facility housing approximately 700 students.
Westside Elementary School continues to be a highly effective campus, recently earning our fourth "A" ranking from the Florida Department of Education.
PBS (Positive Behavior Support) is successfully implemented school wide, and we have high behavioral expectations for students. These expectations are:
Act responsibly**Be honest**Choose safety first**Show respect
These are our A, B, C 'S!
When students are seen demonstrating these behaviors, they are rewarded with Paw Bucks that they can use to purchase fantastic event days, PawMart items, classroom treats and prizes, and special privileges.
We are proud of our Westside Panthers and our exceptional staff of teachers, para-professionals, food service and custodial personnel. We are a family here at WES, and we are happy to serve the children and families of our community!Westside is the Bestside!
